DISSOCIATION AND DID: THE FUNDAMENTALS
ABOUT THE DAY
What is dissociation? Why does it occur? How does it manifest? When does it lead to a dissociative disorder? What are depersonalisation and derealisation? Are dissociative disorders for real? How do you support someone who suffers from trauma-related dissociation? How do you recover? What is it like to be dissociative?
Dissociation is a normal response to trauma, and this course will cover a range of issues fundamental to understanding this phenomenon and how it presents in trauma survivors’ lives. It is suitable for a variety of professionals working in this field, along with survivors themselves. Although an introductory course, the content is not ‘basic’ and represents the latest thinking in the field of trauma and dissociation.
The speaker is Carolyn Spring.
10.00 am to 5.00 pm (registration from 9.30 am).
£50.00 (discounts and concessions available)

Really fantastic training. Slick, very well organised but with a light touch. My patient R has been using your materials extensively already and found the training very inspiring and I personally gained a huge amount from the day.Dr Gordon Barclay
