Healing Haunted Lives: Trauma Workshop Series

Recognizing and Treating
Dissociative Adaptations
to Trauma in Adults
Richard A. Chefetz, M.D

Saturday, October 25, 2008
9:00am - 4:30 pm
Crisis Center of Tampa Bay
One Crisis Center Plaza, Tampa, Florida
(Exit Bearss Avenue WEST, off I-275)

This is an introductory program geared to provide clinicians with a theoretical framework that uses common sense language to describe dissociative processes and their vicissitudes.
Using selected videotapes from the clinical setting, Dr. Chefetz brings the participant into the consultation room to educate about the intensity of the affective disarray and the profound nature of shifts in subjectivity that regularly intrude upon the consciousness of persons with complex dissociative disorders. Dissociative processes are part and parcel of mental life, not just a production of severe trauma. This seminar will help participants learn to identify dissociative processes in both patient and therapist as a routine, but usually un-noticed, part of subjective experience.

Healing Haunted Lives: Trauma Workshop Series
4-part Trauma Series Workshop begins on October 25, 2008, starting off with Dr. Richard Chefetz who will elaborate on dissociation. The series will end on March 7, 2009 with Dr. Ghislaine Boulanger discussing herlongstanding work with Vietnam Veterans as well as more recent work with those intimately affected by the events of 9/11.
