Traumatic experiences can regarded as breaking-points, dividing one’s personality intodissociative parts functioning in daily life (ANPs) and dissociative parts stuck in trauma-time(EPs).
The earlier in life the traumatization—often involving attachment trauma inherent inemotional, physical and sexual abuse--starts, and the more intense and frequent it is, the more complex this dissociation of the personality becomes, and the more phase-oriented therapy aiming at increasing the patient’s/client’s integrative capacity should be the treatment of choice.
In principle, phase-oriented treatment consists of three recurring phases:
1 - stabilization, symptom reduction, symptom reduction, and skills training;
2 - treatment of traumatic memories;
3 - personality (re-)integration and rehabilitation.
In clinical practice, these phases may alternate with each other.
Therapy needs to include:
- a clearly-defined collaborative therapeutic relationship;
- a systematic plan of overcoming the various phobias which maintain the dissociation of the personality;
- the thoughtful application of a systems approach, involving working with dissociative parts also in the treatment of the traumatic memories.
This webinar highlights, in particular, the challenges of working with specific dissociative parts, including child parts (also pre-verbal parts), hostile and perpetrator-imitating parts, and perpetrator-idealizing parts.
In understanding the nature of trauma-generated personality dissociation as an extreme form of non-realization, participants will be able to:
1. recognize the basic division between apparently normal dissociative parts (ANP) and emotional parts (EP) and understand the survival roles of various dissociated parts in the context of the patient's personality;
2. understand how various phobias maintain the dissociation of the personality and know how to overcome them with the frame of the treatment oriented to the specific phase;
3. know how to use the collaborative therapeutic relationship in helping the patient to recognize, accept and collaborate with the parties;
4. develop a systemic approach in working with these parties, including secondary parties (including pre-verbal parties), hostile and imitating and idealized parties of perpetrators of violence;
5. use therapeutic approaches that stimulate the patient's imaginative capacity;
6. work for a collaboration of the dissociated parts in the difficult work of integrating traumatic memories;
7. understand the processes involved in the fusion of dissociated parts and the unification of the personality.
