"For many years I have heard therapists struggling with similar challenges, often in the face of confusing evidence or conflicting common practices"
This two-day workshop was born not only out of practice, supervision and academic research but the experience of supervising these psychologists and therapists.The workshops aim to offer participants a foundation for working with Complex PTSD and dissociation using CBT, underpinned by a human-centred relational philosophy.
Current theories of Complex-PTSD and dissociation, updates in neuroscience and the role of memory processes in the development of PTSD will be explored, along with case conceptualization, treatment planning and phase-orientated therapy.
Like all our workshops, the Complex Trauma & Dissociation workshops are highly practical, with clinical demonstration using a live actor and video footage to model skills. We offer a stop & pause format so that delegates can stop, discuss, and pull open the clinical decision-making steps at each stage of the therapy process. The “actor as client” process brings life-like and safer skills practice into the workshop. This process offers unique hands-on training for professionals with sound theory to practice transfer.Level of Competence Required:
This will be an intermediate-advanced level course suitable for trained mental health professionals who have had prior supervised experience with Trauma-Focused CBT. Due to the cumulative nature of training, delegates should have attended the PTSD Master Class offered by ourselves (or similar level of Trauma-Focused CBT offered elsewhere).Please contact us directly if you are unsure. We are always happy to discuss and advise.
Attendees are required to have a membership of a relevant Professional Body.
Delegates own self-care is emphasised throughout. If you are in doubt as to whether this course is appropriate for you, please discuss with us in confidence.
Most Masterclass workshops are run from our BPS London Office (30 Tabernacle Street, London EC2A 4UE).
