Description

This workshop presentation focuses on Dissociative Identity Disorder. It will review the DSM diagnosis criteria for D.I.D. and discuss making an appropriate diagnosis. This workshop will dive deep into the complexities of parts work, utilizing trauma approaches such as EMDR, Brainspotting, Somatic therapies, and others to working with individuals who have D.I.D. This presentation will include an explanation of how to work with D.I.D. within a treatment center setting and will help differentiate the appropriate treatment modalities that help a D.I.D. client, rather than modalities that may harm those with D.I.D., but are useful in comparison to a client without this diagnosis. We will also discuss case examples from Reconnect Trauma Treatment Center to enhance learning and practice.

Target Audience
  • Psychologists
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
