Working Practically with Dissociation: Therapeutic Tools for Trauma Professionals

Go Back


Dissociation can present us with a perplexing and overwhelming array of manifestations – from being a coping and defence mechanism to inducing altered states of consciousness. Our challenges, as Trauma Professionals are compounded by the fact that while dissociation is our clinical ally in some forms, in other instances it impedes all attempts at therapeutic progress. 

This training workshop, which would be especially relevant for counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists, across modalities – provides an opportunity for professionals working with single-instance trauma, PTSD and complex trauma to add practical skills to their therapeutic repertoire. The aim is to enable practitioners to explore more creative ways of working with dissociation and help them become more embodied, so they can facilitate post-traumatic growth for their clients. Dr Jamie Marich draws on the latest findings from neuroscience and evidence-based techniques to:
  • Debunk the myths surrounding dissociation and provide us with a practical and sensitive orientation to how the dissociative mind works
  • Especially draw attention to strategies suggested by expressive arts and mindfulness-focused practices and evaluate their potential for therapeutic work
  • Provide us with a primer on working with grounding skills in stabilisation and preparation phases of trauma work
  • Help us expand our knowledge of conceptualising and healing dissociation within a trauma-focussed clinical practice
  • Provide an overview on the theory of structural dissociation and help with the exploration of our own dissociative profile and system of parts
She shares strategies for translating this knowledge to practice settings and making the best clinical decisions possible, particularly in treatment planning, case conceptualization and working with extreme emotional distress.
