Treating Severe Trauma with Dissociative Identity Disorder

The presentation focuses on Dissociative Identity Disorder. It will go over the DSM diagnosis for appropriate diagnosing, it 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 DID. The presentation will help differentiate the appropriate treatment modalities that help a DID client rather than ones that may harm them but are useful in comparison to a client without this diagnosis. The workshop will discuss case examples to enhance learning and practice.
