Symposium

Useful and Problematic Indications for Treating Dissociative Patients in Physically Responsive Settings

Sunday, March 25
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: Wilson

Mental traumata are physically stored in inherently atmospheric and relational memories. Physically responsive settings are therefore instrumental to the stabilisation phase of the psychotherapy. They ground physically and mentally while aiding the dissociative client to differentiate between the threat of the past and the relative security of the present. They provide the rocksolid base for the client to enter the trauma exposition stage and return safe and sound.              


Yet some psychoanalysts still remain - justifiably - wary of adopting physically responsive settings for fear of retraumatizing their clients. Body and behavioural therapists, on the other hand, are not always sensitive to the risks that transference and countertransference pose in such settings. The speaker has an academic and vocational background in all three disciplines and it is his aim to consolidate their opposing viewpoints. He will lean on his longstanding experience as a professional supervisor to walk the participants through a range of illuminating  case vignettes and visualised examples to layout both the rewards and pitfalls of utilising physically responsive settings in trauma therapy.
