Following a theoretical introduction to trauma, disorganised attachment and dissociative and identity disorder (IARTA workshop 15th Dec) we continue with an introduction to clinical work with Dissociative Identity Disorder. What are the key aims of the work? How do create a space that welcomes all parts/alters/self-states? What are the biggest concerns and dangers? This workshop is Suitable for beginners and experienced clinicians from the psychotherapy fields and although not a pre-requisite, those who were unable to attend Valerie’s workshop in Dec, would benefit from watching that first. There will be space for questions and discussion.
