Most contemporary trauma approaches emphasize trauma processing, making an implicit assumption that the therapeutic relationship will not be problematic or challenging, or at least not offering intensive treatment approaches. But we know that enactments of trauma are common - even expected- and find expression in the relationship between client and therapist. We will explore a variety of relational challenges, both from the perspective of the client and their transferences, and the therapist and their countertransferences. Although this is not an issue for all clients with complex trauma and dissociation, many do have intense relational distress that emerges in the therapeutic relationship. These experiences are tremendous opportunities to resolve avoidance, excessive demands, disappointments and ruptures, and overwhelming yearning in relationships. Many clients with dissociative disorders may have multiple and contradictory experiences of the therapist, adding an additional layer of complexity. Participants will learn about a number of different relational difficulties and effective approaches to their resolution. Enactments of trauma create intense relational conflicts, and the therapist may unwittingly participate by becoming defensive and withholding, or by appeasing or caretaking the client. Participants will learn a particular collaborative model to begin treatment with clients, approaching attachment issues once safety has been established and the client has sufficient skills to tolerate the intensity of attachment processing.
Participants will be able to:
Describe the basic underlying neurobiological and evolutionary foundations of attachment and dependency problems in complex trauma and dissociation.
Apply at least five (5) strategies to effectively manage relational challenges in therapy with complex trauma survivors.
Discuss one (1) collaborative model for the therapeutic relationship that can be effective in containing and treating relational difficulties in complex trauma.
Identity the multiple and contradictory transferences present in clients with complex dissociative disorders and apply at least three (3) interventions to reduce the client’s conflicted transference.
Analyze their own reactions to relational challenges in treatment.
