Treatment of Traumatic Memory in Dissociative Disorders

Once clients with dissociative disorders are stabilized, they need to process traumatic memories. There are many approaches to working with traumatic memory, from prolonged exposure to EMDR to psychodynamic to narrative approaches. Regardless of which approach is used, the work must often be carefully sequenced in a slow, gradual way to help the client maintain in a window of tolerance.

Recorded in May 2021, this webinar series consists of 3 x 1 hour webinars. Explore how to organise the work with dissociative parts of the client, what to look for to ensure adequate pacing, how to decide whether the client as a whole or only certain parts of the clients should participate, how to titrate experience and time to pace the work, how to pendulate to the present moment from memory, how to bracket memory work with positive experiences, among other interventions.
