Event description

Description

Presenters: Laura Gossin, MS, LMFT and Tovah Means, MS, LMFT.
***This workshop is for mental health professionals only.***
Working with traumatized individuals and couples can be a demanding, challenging task for individual and couple’s therapists. Working as a part of a treatment team can be vital to our our success in helping clients’ process and integrate trauma, be a buffer against vicarious trauma, and is essential in navigating the unavoidable transference/countertransference reactions in working with survivors. At Watch Hill Therapy we use this approach when treating clients and will be sharing the many pieces of the model we use to support survivors and therapists.
In this workshop you will learn about the systems of support that our client’s need as they face their own complications in relationships due to the impact of early childhood trauma and neglect, how to collaborate and use consultation to break through stuck and challenging issues, the need to integrate multiple forms of treatment to address the client’s somatic/unprocessed/intrusive symptoms, and some of the common issues that we face as therapist’s working with traumatized populations.
Laura and Tovah have been collaborating on cases together for many years and are also engaged in various other systems of support in treating complex trauma cases. For more information about this workshop, read here.
Learning Objectives:
  • Learn about the key systems of support traumatized populations need to navigate and use to address the impact from their early childhood experiences.
  • Understand the importance of working collaboratively across systems for the successful treatment of trauma.
  • Learn the forms of treatment that we use to address trauma from a bottom-up approach and moves away from more cognitive interventions.
  • Identify key challenges that will arise within the treatment system and how to use them to advance treatment.
