Complex Ethics for Complex Trauma: Navigating Uncharted Waters
Thursday, June 1st, 2017
8:30am - 4:30pm

Complex Ethics for Complex Trauma will address the intimate relationship between therapist and client. Included in this is how the therapist reacts to clients with complex trauma histories, how enactments, re-enactments, transference and countertransference, dissociative attunement and projective identification play out in the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client. Participants will leave with the understanding that those professionals who have a high standard of connection to their theoretical model and also a high connection to their understanding of their own countertransference will fare the best when working with clients who have a complex trauma history. Participants will be taught specific techniques to address hot issues such as digital and social media, emailing and texting with clients, boundaries, therapeutic touch and dual/multiple relationships. We will look at how ethics may need to be modified for the practice location, agency vs private practice work, and rural vs urban issues. Providers have been shown to respond in a more reactive manner to trauma survivors than to other mental health populations, and research indicates that there is a necessity to hold firm but not rigid boundaries with this population. How do you know when to slide the boundary ruler? Attend this training to begin finding answers!



Vicarious Trauma: Ditching Self Care and Owning your Shit (can I say that?)
Friday, June 2nd, 2017
8:30am - 4:30pm

This presentation will be a motivating and inspiring training on the topic of vicarious trauma. Unlike other trainings on the subject, the presenter aims to leave attendees feeling uplifted, engaged, and hopeful. Attendees will learn what vicarious trauma is, how to identify compassion fatigue and compassion satisfaction in one's self, and how to both prevent and treat their own vicarious trauma.
