Internal Healing Dialogue: a method of resolving attachment to the perpetrator 

with Jim Knipe, PhD

In this webinar, a sequence of EMDR-related treatment procedures will be presented that can be very useful in treating (i.e. resolving) this problem of attachment to the perpetrator, thereby facilitating not only resolution of posttraumatic disturbance from specific traumatic events, but also contributing to resolution of the dissociative separation between personality parts.  These procedures will first be described, and then illustrated with video examples from therapy sessions.

Common Cognitive Errors Amongst Trauma Survivors

with Colin A. Ross, MD

In this webinar, Dr. Ross will discuss common cognitive errors among trauma survivors. These are most prominent in survivors of severe, chronic childhood trauma but also can occur in people who have experienced a single traumatic event in adulthood. Negative distortions in thinking are included in the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for PTSD. Examples of such errors in thinking are: I am bad; the abuse is my fault; I deserved the abuse; I could have prevented or avoided the abuse; and my judgment is terrible. These beliefs are understandable and arise from normal childhood thought processes: within Dr. Ross’ Trauma Model Therapy, these different forms of self-blame are based on the locus of control shift, which he will explain. Examples of strategies and interventions for these errors in thinking will be described.

How Psychological Stress Impacts Cognition

with Dana Ross, MD, MSc, FRCPC

One of the most common things that Dr. Ross hears from her patients who have lived through complex trauma is the phrase, “I think I have dementia.” People go on to report struggles with everyday memory, word recall, planning, focusing and other aspects of cognitive functioning.
