The New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation presents

Pre-registration is now closed for this event, however we still accept walk-in registrations the day of the event.


There is an overwhelming array of treatment models available to therapists working with chronically traumatized clients.  What are the common denominators across these models, and what are the unique contributions of each?  This presentation is designed to help the clinician identify those strategies most appropriate for a given case.  The first part of the presentation will provide an overview of the most useful concepts and strategies from a variety of trauma treatment models – including IFS, EMDR, Hypnosis, CBT, Ego State Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, AEDP, DBT, and the Structural Model Of Dissociation. An understanding of these concepts and strategies can guide the therapist during assessment, case conceptualization, and treatment planning as well as through all phases of treatment. The second part of the presentation will offer guidelines for decision-making in establishing priorities, creating treatment plans, and making moment-to-moment intervention choices within individual treatment sessions.  Throughout the presentation, videotapes will be shown to demonstrate the concepts and strategies being presented, and to show how multiple clinical models can be integrated into the treatment of an individual client.
