What could I have said differently? What did I miss? How could I have connected more?

Frequently Asked Questions

Symptoms of dissociation vary greatly and can be hard to recognize, for this reason trauma-related dissociation is often underdiagnosed and poorly treated. Dissociation may present with clients being detached from the bodies, feeling like they are seeing life through a window, having near obsessive pursuits in career, athletics or struggling with addiction. And, when untreated chronic dissociation can even become ingrained in our client's personalities, impacting and stunting their identity development.

In this course, you'll gain the assessment, treatment planning and key interventions to help deliver the highest standard of care for your trauma clients.


This course will help any therapist or mental health professional more successfully treat clients experiencing trauma and related problems.
