Working with Complex Trauma | Holloway Campus. Room to be confirmed | Thursday, 04. July 2019

This workshop is for London Metropolitan University Staff Only 
An event arranged by LondonMet Counselling Services in collaboration with One in Four
Working with Complex Trauma
The repeated and systematic brutalisation seen in childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence and sexual exploitation gives rise to complex presentations that differ markedly from single event trauma. This workshop will explore the range of trauma experiences and distinguish between the current conceptualisation of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), subtype PTSD with prominent dissociative symptoms and complex PTSD and the clinical challenges inherent in assessment including misdiagnosis and co-morbidity. Emphasis will be placed on the role of dissociation in complex trauma and how this gives rise to a number of dissociative disorders and somatic symptom related disorders. In addition, it will examine the nature of shame and traumatic bonding and how the trauma bond impacts on the developing sense of self and relational worth.

Provider: One in Four
Facilitator: Christiane Sanderson
