Trauma & Dissociation Consultation Group
Did you know?: Dissociation is the third most common mental health symptom--following anxiety and depression--but the least understood clinically? This consultation group is being offered to clinicians who are needing guidance around complex cases of trauma, dissociation, and attachment.
Time & Location
Sep 12, 2022, 10:00 AM MDT – Sep 13, 2022, 10:00 AM MDT
About the event
Open to any experience level, this group consultation is for mental health professionals who have complex cases around trauma and dissociation and want extra support or guidance. With combined experience in C-PTSD, Personality Disorders, DID, body-based therapies, trauma reprocessing modalities, and systemic work Lauren and Abby are honored to hold a safe space for healers of trauma survivors to learn from each other while building a close-knit community. Unique issues that commonly arise out of working with complex trauma will be introduced as a theme for each session. Holding space for trauma survivors can be a rewarding, yet isolating experience and so this group is also designed to incorporate peer support and provide a referral network for clinicians wanting to connect on cases with unique issues.
This group will be held virtually every other Monday at 10:00 AM MST starting September 12th through November 21st. Given that complex cases can bring up our own vulnerabilities as clinicians, this will be a closed group to foster emotional safety for authentic connection. Open to enrollment until Friday, September 9th. Interest exceeding the 10-person capacity can be waitlisted for our Spring 2023 group.
