Treating Complex Trauma: Optimal Integration of Treatment Models
Monday, August 10, 2020, 8:00 AM to Friday, August 14, 2020, 5:00 PM EDT
Category: CE Events: Adult Individuals

An overwhelming array of treatment models is available to therapists working with chronically traumatized clients. What are the common denominators across these models, and what are the unique contributions of each? This workshop offers a conceptual framework and practical, phase-oriented approach to working with complicated, dysregulated trauma clients. This approach stresses the importance of moment-to-moment tracking and dyadic regulation with an emphasis on secure attachment as a primary treatment objective. It is designed to help the clinician identify those strategies most appropriate for a given case. The first part of the workshop will provide an overview of the most useful concepts and strategies from a variety of trauma treatment models and related theories–including IFS, EMDR, Hypnosis, CBT, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, AEDP, DBT, Polyvagal Theory, and the Theory of Structural Dissociation. An understanding of relevant concepts and strategies can guide the therapist during assessment, case conceptualization, and treatment planning as well as through all additional phases of treatment. The second part of the workshop will offer guidelines for decision-making in establishing priorities, creating treatment plans, and making intervention choices. The overarching approach proposed in this workshop acknowledges the  competencies and survival resources inherent in each person and the power of the therapeutic relationship. Interventions are designed to honor and deepen existing resources and self-capacities, while simultaneously introducing new skills and strategies. Throughout the workshop, videotapes will be shown to demonstrate the concepts and strategies being presented, and to show how multiple clinical models can be effectively integrated into the treatment of an individual client.
