    3 Days with Dolores Mosquera
    July 12, 13, 14 in Portland OR

    Learn to treat Dissociative Disorders with the Progressive approach!
    Phase oriented treatment serves as an excellent guide to structure the work with clients suffering from dissociative disorders. Many trauma therapists struggle when it comes to deciding on how to proceed with trauma work, since some cases never seem stable enough. A progressive approach in working with traumatic memories may be implemented safely; the key is identifying possible indicators in each client. This workshop will illustrate specific micro-processing techniques that both increase client stabilization and allow for working with parts of the traumatic memories.
