The Advanced Training in Complex Trauma and Dissociation is a training meant for Level I graduates in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. The techniques are uniquely suited for clients with complex symptoms and disorders. Complex trauma and Borderline Personality Disorder clients benefit from the emphasis on mindfulness and present day focus, while dissociative disorder clients benefit from working with the body that is a shared whole for all parts. Despite the fact that more complex clients can be body-phobic or have difficulty with movement and action, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy techniques can be adapted to suit their special requirements. Slowing down the pace, working with ‘slivers’ of information, combining body and parts work, increasing the amount of repetition and practice all contribute to expanding the Window of Tolerance. In addition, the basic skills from the Level I Training will be reviewed via skills practice in order to increase mastery of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy work with complex trauma, Borderline Personality, and dissociative disorders.
Traditional psychotherapy addresses the cognitive and emotional elements of trauma but lacks techniques that work directly with the physiological elements, despite the fact that trauma profoundly affects the body and that so many symptoms of traumatized individuals are somatically driven, including affect intolerance, autonomic reactivity, vegetative depressive symptoms, impulsivity, and anxiety. All of these clinical issues are inaccessible or difficult to treat in a talking therapy context without a way to include the bodily symptoms in treatment.There are 3 Levels that can subsequently be completed,Level I: training in affect dysregulation, survival defenses and traumatic memory (80 contact hours)Level II: emotional processing, meaning making and attachment repair (180 contact hours)Level III: advanced skills/certification (144 contact hours)Specialty trainng in complex trauma and dissociation (50 contact hours)
