    Saturday, December 7, 2019

    ALL DAY PROGRAM:  9 AM to 4:30 PM

    Location:  Scottish Rite Masonic Museum and Library, 33 Marrett Road, Lexington, MA 02421

    Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: 

    Overcoming Self-Alienation

     

    Program Summary:  Alienation from self is a survival strategy that maintains attachment to abusive caregivers by disowning one’s self as “bad” or “unlovable.”   Made possible by the innate ability of young children to create imaginary worlds in a frightening environment, the cost is a deeply painful failure of self-acceptance maintained by shame and self-loathing, dissociation, and denial.   Without internal compassion, it becomes difficult to take in the compassion and acceptance of others and impossible to tolerate rejection or criticism. 

     

    To overcome self-alienation, the therapy must focus on cultivating clients’ ability to observe painful emotions as communications from their disowned selves and then to provide the ‘missing experiences’ for which their child parts have longed, transforming the implicitly remembered experience of fear and threat.  Using strategies inspired by Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems, we will explore the therapeutic power of welcoming home our most deeply rejected and disowned selves.


    Learning Objectives

    • Describe the relationship between early attachment trauma and alienation from self
    • Recognize the clinical signs of self-alienation
    • Teach clients to mindfully notice their distressing emotions and impulses as communications from child parts
    • Identify the contribution of child selves in surviving the trauma
    • Describe hypnotic and somatic interventions that create an increased somatic sense of connection or attachment to one’s self
    • Foster ‘earned secure attachment’ as the outcome of attachment bonding between adult and child selves


    Janina Fisher, Ph.D. is the Assistant Educational Director of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, an EMDRIA-approved Consultant, and former instructor, Harvard Medical School.  An international expert on the treatment of trauma, she is co-author with Pat Ogden of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Attachment and Trauma (2015), author of Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Overcoming Internal Self-Alienation (2017) and the forthcoming book, Working with the Neurobiological Legacy of Trauma (in press).  More information can be found on her website: www.janinafisher.com.

    Sociocultural Context and Traumatic Stress

    Saturday, January 25, 2020

    33 Marrett Road, Lexington, MA 02421

    About the program:  This workshop will focus on sociocultural issues and contexts affecting trauma survivors' experiences and responses.  Dr. Tummala-Nara will explain how sociocultural context, including the current political climate in the U.S., influences the ways in which traumatic stress is experienced and how survivors conceptualize healing and recovery. She will describe how sociocultural trauma, such as racial trauma and political trauma affects the lives of survivors, and will cover critical issues in providing psychotherapy to trauma survivors from diverse sociocultural backgrounds, with particular attention to the dynamics of the therapeutic relationship (e.g., transference, counter-transference).
