This week we discuss the ins and outs of understanding how to treat complex trauma from an acceptance and mindfulness approach with ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and other allied approaches (including using RFT to understand trauma and sensory issues including 'body memories,' and DBT for self-regulation and coping with skills training). Both Joanne and I have a background, being trained in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic traditions which have rich bodies of information for treating traumatic dissociation and working with people who have suffered prolonged histories of interpersonal trauma—especially abuse.
This is part one of a two part conversation that we have on the subject of complex trauma. As always, we welcome your feedback and questions; you can reach us directly: [email protected]
