Many clients with histories of complicated trauma are challenged by the presence of dissociative symptoms. This workshop is designed to deepen clinician’s skills in recognizing symptoms of dissociation that often intrude on treatment progress. Participants will learn how to help clients both understand their symptoms and transform them into coping skills that lead to greater emotional stability and to evolving capacities to process their trauma.

Given the enthusiastic response to this training in 2010, N
ESTTD’s Program Committee and Community Education and Outreach Committee collaborated to bring it back. The introductory workshop is being offered by NESTTD in recognition of the prevalence of dissociation in most chronic trauma survivors seen by agency and private practice clinicians, and of the limited training opportunities for introducing and working with dissociation in their current treatment relationships.
