2018 Best Practices Program Still Available!

The seasonal modules for 2018 are: 1) Spring – How to work with clients whose complexity is due to unresolved developmental trauma, especially prenatal, perinatal, attachment trauma, early childhood trauma, and medical trauma; 2) Summer – How to work with clients who demonstrate complex fragmentation originating from complex trauma and dissociative disturbances; and 3) Fall – How to achieve forward momentum with clients who struggle with complex chronic pain and pain syndromes and complex emotional pain.

Our 2018 Schedule

Each month you will access webinars with the experts, including Dr. Bonnie Badenoch, Kathy Kain, Dr. Stanley Rosenberg, Dr. Janina Fisher, Kathy Steele, Dr. Peter Levine, Dr. Raja Selvam, and Dr. Maggie Phillips (please meet these and other experts by visiting our Meet the Experts page). You will learn from each expert how to utilize the artistry of their unique methods as well as relevant science to substantiate their approaches.

Research reports a significant increase in the proportion of multiple and complex special needs among clients who seek therapy. This may be due to many factors, including global increase in widespread stress due to unprecedented natural disasters, terrorism, and financial crises, difficulty in diagnosing complex trauma and medical conditions, diminishing resources for complex treatment efforts due to decreases in budgets, and the failure for individuals in need to qualify for affordable health care.

How can we come to the aid of these challenging clients?

There is clear agreement that professionals need to practice self-care such as mindfulness to help diffuse reactions to clients’ provocative behaviors, practice patience with difficult clients as well as with themselves, seek peer support and professional consultation to keep perspective, and sometimes make the decision that a positive match between the therapist and a particular client is not possible.

At the heart of such a challenge is the ability to recognize underlying stressors that are repetitive, prolonged, and/or cumulative, most often interpersonal, involving direct harm, maltreatment, and abuse and including neglect and abandonment, often occurring at developmentally vulnerable times of the individual’s life      .

This year’s online program provides help for practitioners in all of these important areas. What’s unique about our program is that we add one more essential ingredient, which is helping clients discover, explore, and master the utilization of their own healing abilities under these kinds of traumatic circumstances.
