Description:

Research increasingly supports clinical experience that many, if not the majority, of clients treated for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, actually have Complex Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD).  CPTSD is associated with histories of prolonged trauma, abuse, and neglect and is considered a form of developmental trauma. Such Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders include disturbances of self-organization that overlap with attachment deficits and pathologies requiring specialized interventions to modify.

 

This program will review the nature of the unrepressed unconscious, related memory systems, and the use of clinical hypnosis to facilitate relevant change. The presentation will focus on attachment conceptualizations and methods of repair espoused by Albert Peso (1991) and Brown & Elliot (2016).  The application of the polyvagal theory will be reviewed to modulate the neurophysiological substrate of the ANS for the promotion of trauma stabilization and attachment repair.  Examples of specific interventions and management of potential issues that may emerge as the process unfolds will be reviewed.  In addition to modification of attachment issues, the range of strategies covered will also assist with the promotion of positive self-regard, ego-strengthening, and self-efficacy.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

1.     Distinguish PTSD from CPTSD and describe the three aspects of Disordered Self Organization that characterizes CPTSD.

2.     Describe the two major human memory systems and explain how different hypnotic strategies can modify each.

3.     List three types of insecure attachment and describe two hypnotic strategies to facilitate repair of each.

4.     List the functions of secure attachment and describe how they are incorporated into hypnotic attachment repair interventions.
