Incorporating the Findings of TOP DD with Severely Dissociated Clients: Anticipating, Understanding, and Working through the Roadblocks to Stabilization


(3CE)*


About the program: Bethany Brand will present in more detail some of the exercises used in the TOP DD Network study.  There are a series of practice and journaling exercises patients complete as part of the program.  She will discuss common “roadblocks” that highly dissociative patients may present when attempting to stabilize their safety including common phobic reactions to dissociated self-states, their bodies and sensations, and their emotions.  Through role plays and discussion, she will demonstrate how to work with severely dissociative clients to gradually help them develop self-understanding and acceptance so they can tolerate feeling, knowing and experiencing disowned aspects of themselves.



Bethany Brand, PhD, is a Psychology Professor at Towson University and she specializes in the assessment and treatment of trauma-related disorders   She has over 25 years of clinical and research experience.  Dr. Brand has been honored with numerous research, teaching and clinical awards and served on several national task forces that developed guidelines for the assessment and treatment of trauma-related disorders.
