Dissociation in Trauma Treatment:
Tools, Techniques, and Best Practices

On-Demand Pre-Recorded Category II Training

Workshop Information

About 7% of the population report experiencing a dissociative experience at some point in their life span, and about 2% of the population experience dissociative identity disorder. However, due to the controversy surrounding dissociative disorders, many practitioners have not been trained to identify or treat these disorders. 

In this workshop, you’ll learn about dissociation and its manifestations in neurobiology, emotions and behaviors. We’ll discuss practical techniques and tools to implement if a client experiences a dissociative episode in session. In addition, we’ll provide an overview of the evidence base and efficacy for treatment of dissociation.
