Dolores Mosquera, MA
Practical Tools to Work
with Dissociative Processes (6CE)*
9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library
33 Marrett Road, Lexington, MA 02421
In recent years, the subject of dissociation has been generating a great deal of clinical interest. Dissociative clients present a wide variety of symptoms, ranging from those that are overt and highly noticeable to those so extremely covert and subtle that they often go unnoticed--even to the trained therapeutic eye. Some of the most obvious dissociative symptoms (amnesia, not recognizing the therapist, losing dual attention, reliving a past event as if it were happening in the here and now) can be puzzling for clinicians.
This workshop will illustrate ways to work with both overt and covert dissociative processes. Clinicians will learn to identify the dissociative language and will be given tools to decipher the underlying messages. Participants will also learn different grounding techniques and procedures to expand the window of tolerance.
Various approaches used in a variety of complicated clinical situations when working with the system of parts will be illustrated through video examples.
