This interactive one-day training builds on our clinical training programs which provide the clinical framework of the three phased approach and introduces the concept of dissociation. This training focuses on this specific topic and considers dissociation as a continuum, explores dissociation in everyday life and expands on this to explore complex trauma-related dissociation. Dissociation can be subtle and hard to detect. It is often be overlooked in treatment for this reason and also because it is understood solely as Dissociative Identity Disorder which sits at one end of the continuum. This training program provides key information and strategies to support the identification of dissociation and working with people experiencing dissociation in therapeutic settings.
This training is informed by current research from Blue Knot’s Practice Guidelines for Identifying and Treating Complex Trauma-Related Dissociation, which is a helpful companion to this training.
