About the Event

This is a training to help clinicians become competent in contemporary trauma theory and treatment.

The course begins with a review of the situations and reasons that have prevented trauma studies to be developed and adopted. It moves into explaining the importance of following the phases that were discovered by Pierre Janet and have been embraced by trauma scholars all around the world. Traumatic symptoms and the understanding of posttraumatic stress will be explained in detail incorporating the latest findings in neurobiology, dissociation, and attachment theory. We will discuss the difficulties entailed in approaching clinical work from a new paradigm.

The course will cover how trauma-induced changes in the brain manifest as traumatic and interpersonal symptoms, examine dissociation and its role in the trauma disorders, and look at the way childhood attachment produces vulnerability or resilience in the face of trauma. We will examine how to intervene to resource clients, teach them self-regulation skills, and achieve nervous system stabilization.

The course will touch on the best ways to approach the processing of traumatic memories and to modify the narrative that promotes re-traumatization. Finally, we will explore how emotions like shame (and guilt) may join fear in the development of a false self and personality disorders.
