A Controversial Diagnosis: This seminar will be of particular interest to people wishing to understand how individuals diagnosed with dissociative disorders are affected and how they cope with everyday life.
WHEN: Friday 9 August 2013
VENUE: Newcastle, Museum Theatre (NSW)
HOSTED by ZHUCHI
Presenters Barbara Stacy and Glynis Szafraniec, will draw on their experience of living with dissociation, post graduate research and the facilitation of dissociation support groups, in their discussion of the impacts of dissociation on neural development, memory and recall, continuity of self and daily functioning.
They will also look at the developmental impact of complex trauma, experiential indicators and diagnosis of the dissociative disorders, and coping strategies that work.
Ideas for encouraging resilience and enabling the dissociative client to reclaim their personal history and sense of self are included.
