About the event

Many clients who have suffered chronic early sexual violence are often emotionally flooded by standard trauma exposure, thus this otherwise highly validated technique becomes problematic in their treatment. This has led to an emphasis on stabilizing interventions and resource activation with these clients. While this often leads to significant improvement, it still leaves the client vulnerable to the trauma and associated triggers, which can often be the cause of retraumatization.

This workshop is aimed at experienced clinicians that seek to expand their work with traumatic stress and the guilt and shame of perpetrator introjects that clients often persistently struggle with.

The workshop will have a dual focus one presenting a method for working on traumatic material in a gentle manner, one that will not lead to emotional overstimulation: “Rescuing the Inner Children”. The second will be on working with internalized states of the perpetrator - "Intrusive Perpetrator Introjects".  Distinctive features are an imaginative trauma therapy that is based on an ego-states understanding of trauma and dissociative states typical for early sexual traumata. The early sexual abuse is conceptualized as traumatized inner child states, which are targeted in the treatment by imaginatively rescuing these “children”. This helps to overcome the structural dissociation and leads to deeper trauma processing and lasting integration of trauma states into more stable personality functioning.
