We are excited to announce our 2021 Regional Conference in Toronto, Canada! Join ISSTD for this two-day conference featuring presentations by Christine Forner, D Michael Coy, Colin Ross, and Peter Maves.
As we continue to see a need for increased trauma-informed services and approaches to mental health, becoming attuned to the differences between simple trauma, complex trauma, and dissociation is essential for determining how to proceed with respect to providing relevant treatment. By widening the lens through which we view and understand trauma, we make space for improved treatment outcomes and a more attuned therapeutic approach that lends to a more client centred therapy that is tailored to each client’s unique needs and symptoms.
We invite you to join us over two days to explore the relevance of complex trauma and dissociation in our practices and how we can increase our knowledge and awareness in order to improve client treatment and outcomes. This conference will include workshops on the history of complex trauma and dissociation as it exists within theory and practice, screening and assessing for complex trauma and dissociative disorders, how to treat dissociative disorders in different settings, and getting additional support through a consultation clinic with our seasoned presenters.
