Psychotherapy with Dissociative Adolescents Webinar

Date: 
Friday, April 11, 2014
Time: 
11
Location: 
11:30 AM- 1:00 PM (Eastern Time)
Sponsoring Agency: 
International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD)
Description: 

For many years, the practice of psychotherapy for dissociative disorders was largely focused on working with adult survivors. Over the last 10 to 15 years, there has been increased recognition and focus on working with younger trauma survivors in developmentally appropriate ways to more effectively reduce or eliminate the need for dissociative processes as an ongoing coping mechanism. A clear advantage of this approach is that the earlier developmentally these coping mechanisms are addressed, the less firmly entrenched they are.


In this webinar, we will explore the complexities of working with the dissociative adolescent, how various modalities can assist in the therapeutic process in strengthening affect regulation and diminishing the need for dissociation as a primary coping mechanism. This webinar will also explore some of the widely differing circumstances that you may be presented with a dissociative adolescent client, how these varying circumstances may dictate the way in which therapy is conducted. We will explore how they are similar to and different from working with traumatized adults. We will explore in what ways they can be more challenging and some effective ways of meeting those challenges.  Various therapeutic modalities as well as many practical tools for working with this population will be presented.
