Using the natural energy of our Selves to heal - Internal Family Systems with complex dissociative clients


Working with complex trauma, OSDD and DID can be very challenging and this workshop will help  therapists develop their knowledge and skills in working with these clients. Often therapists do not have any input on complex trauma in their initial training and so they have to continue to gain the necessary knowledge and skills throughout their careers. Together we will explore ways of working with dissociative disorders and DID, using various IFS techniques and exploring the body’s natural self-healing processes. This workshop is open to all regardless of their level of experience.
