NEW ENGLAND SOCIETY FOR THE TREATMENT
OF TRAUMA AND DISSOCIATION
Nancy Napier, MA, LMFT
Utilizing "Therapeutic Dissociation" and Corrective
Experiences to Enhance Somatically-Oriented Trauma Resolution
Saturday, October 20, 2018
1:15 - 4:30 pm
The afternoon will emphasize work with “therapeutic dissociation,” a means of differentiating the present-day adult state from states/parts that represent unmetabolized trauma, attachment challenges, and other overwhelming experiences. It will also emphasize corrective experiences, where the activated nervous system will have an opportunity to access somatic and psychological states of being protected, seen, or otherwise appropriately met in order to help resolve unmetabolized experiences. There will be didactic information and then practice in dyads or triads. Examples of work with uncoupling younger parts from the present-day adult self will be offered.
