If this is your first Summit session, please arrive early enough to get your registration materials  at The New School’s Lang Center at 55 West 13th Street (one block away).

This advanced training Master Class is for clinicians of all disciplines treating individuals who have experienced trauma or chronic shock.  We will examine the Trauma Role System, as well as the relational concepts of mutual dissociation and enactment, and their contribution to the complexity of therapy with these patients. Using dramatic techniques to identify and embody the trauma dynamic, we will assist participants in deepening their understanding of relational dilemmas often encountered in the therapeutic space. It will also help sharpen their ability to negotiate difficult moments in treatment, which may often hold the potential for fostering transformation. The topics of discussion will include: how efforts to protect the individuals with whom we work can enable the trauma cycle; how our own unformulated material can enter the treatment relationship; how an understanding of the psychodynamics of this process can aid us in negotiating the subtle; and the tender edge of therapeutic versus re-traumatic human exchange.

Eligible for 6.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS
