The Assessment and Treatment of Dissociative Disorders

Chronic trauma that occurs early in life has profound effects on personality development and can lead to the development of dissociative identity disorder (DID). This workshop will present an overview of trauma and dissociation. The diagnostic assessment of DID, formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder will be reviewed and the stages of treatment and specific intervention strategies will be covered. Through case examples the treatment of DID will be discussed including: pacing treatment, balancing containment and processing trauma. (This workshop can also be used as an elective towards the Trauma Response and Crisis Intervention certificate program.)

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
