NEW ENGLAND SOCIETY FOR THE TREATMENT
OF TRAUMA AND DISSOCIATION
Online registration is currently close for this event. Walk-in registrations will be accepted.
There is neither a more pervasive nor more toxic emotional experience than discovering a mind is wrapped in a caul of shame, as if from birth onward. The withering of human potential that shame provokes sometimes creates a paradoxical oasis of misery from which a suffering soul cannot seem to be coaxed. In this exploration, shame will become more visible through an understanding of its physiologic and somatic origins, its role in attachment, its context in the organization of a multiple self-state model of mind, and its role in negative therapeutic reactions and other modes of impasse.
Using PowerPoint presentations, case presentations, and a 30 minute video of a person with DID, participants in this conference will develop a core knowledge of the clinical tools and perspectives useful in creating consciousness for previously isolated (dissociated) emotional states, cognitive distortions, and typically distorted relational expectations which all leads to more positive clinical outcomes in very difficult psychotherapies. This is an "in-the-trenches" approach to conveying clinical knowledge and bringing out the best in ourselves and our patients. The reality of the wish to change while staying the same is a normal paradoxical occurrence in the treatment of severe disturbances in otherwise talented people. Armed with the knowledge and perspective in this presentation, participants will take home more of what they need to accomplish in these difficult treatments.
This event includes 6 CEs with the registration fee.
