Assessment and Treatment of Complex Trauma and Dissociation in Children and Teens – Dr Joyanna Silberg PhD

Joyanna Silberg is a clinical child psychologist in private practice who is also the President of the Leadership Council on Child Abuse & Interpersonal Violence. Her psychotherapy practice specializes in children and adolescents suffering from dissociative symptoms and disorders, and her forensic practice specializes in child sexual abuse.

In this two-day workshop, Dr Silberg will cover the highlights of her EDUCATE model which takes young clients through a systematic sequence of steps that leads to healing from severe trauma and dissociation. Theoretical points will directly relate to interventions so that the participants can understand how theory directly leads to the choice of interventions.

The workshop will include active demonstrations of therapeutic techniques such as the “time machine method”, “thank you note” exercises, and creating “mixed feeling charts”.

Special emphasis will be placed on how to assess progress and stuck moments in therapy and how to prioritize interventions at any given time. When is a family session important? When is it important to find the traumatic source of a trigger? When is it appropriate to uncover hidden trauma? When working with traumatized youth it often feels like there is so much to be done, and difficult to know where the key points of intervention are. Dr Silberg will address how to assess the most important areas to address as treatment progresses.

There will be an opportunity for participants to present case material and utilize material presented in the workshop to problem solve new solutions.

Unleash your EMDR, Release the Magic – Mark Brayne (EMDR)

Therapists already familiar with basic EMDR protocols (and trained to at least Level 3/4) are invited to join a continuing series of EMDR Focus workshops with practical coaching in the Attachment-Focused approach to working with client dysfunctions rooted in developmental experiences in childhood.

Personally endorsed by Dr Laurel Parnell, author of the key EMDR texts Attachment-Focused EMDR and A Therapist’s Guide to EMDR, these two-day workshops are built around teaching, discussion, a full live demonstration of Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR) in action, and supervised dyad work including full supervised practicums as both therapist and client.
