Assessment and Treatment Strategies for Some of the Most Misunderstood Disorders in the DSM
Trauma and dissociation go hand in hand. But the signs and symptoms of dissociation can be difficult to recognize. Frightened and confused, many clients enter a “revolving door” of ineffective treatment, in and out of the mental health system when the root of their problems can’t be identified.
With assessment tools, step-by-step processes, and therapeutic interventions, this program will prepare you to effectively meet the clinical challenges involved in identifying and treating individuals across the dissociative spectrum!
We’re that confident you'll find this learning experience to be all that's promised and more than you expected.
