Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Transformational Approaches to Treating Complex Trauma
September 8, 2023 - September 9, 2023
Because trauma lives in the body as well as the mind, traditional talk therapy cannot access the deeply rooted, pervasive wounds that complex trauma leaves behind. In fact, therapeutic approaches that emphasize talking about the events often result in more, not less, activation of somatic trauma responses.
Adding to the challenge is the fact that many traumatized clients present with overlapping symptoms including self-hatred, self-alienation, addiction, internal conflict, numbing, or shame.
Because of this, despite your best efforts you can never treat the root of their challenges: the legacy of trauma, which continues to “tell the story” not with words, but with chronic somatic survival responses.
The key to providing effective interventions for your clients is to shift your perspective so you can see your client NOT as a traumatized whole person, but rather as fragmented parts in need of healing.
Learn how to heal these wounded parts of the self in this exclusive 2-day in-person workshop, where world-renowned trauma and attachment expert Dr. Janina Fisher will teach you her transformational approach to complex trauma treatment.
