In this workshop, we will identify and explore 20 of the most important things to stay mindful of when treating the challenging diagnosis of Dissociative Identity Disorder. As we process this framework for treatment, we will simultaneously be addressing the common missteps made by well-meaning and even experienced clinicians.
We will discuss the therapeutic decisions that adversely affect appropriate boundaries, the flow and direction of treatment, internal stabilization and safety, and clients’ attitudes about hospitalization and integration. We will explore many case examples from the presenter’s practice, as well as a wide range of cases that she has consulted on over the years.
Participants will have the opportunity to connect these ground rules to their own work, have their professional struggles “normalized,” and will be encouraged to get guidance and feedback about challenges in their present caseloads.
