A Clinical Workshop: Working with Profound Childhood Sexual Trauma

Start Date: Saturday, May 11, 2019
End Date: Saturday, May 11, 2019
Location: New York, NY 10017
Description: SATURDAY, MAY 11, 2019


This workshop will focus on psychotherapy with a young female suffering from post-traumatic stress subsequent to a rape by a priest when she was 7 years old. The details of the therapy will demonstrate the experiential difficulties encountered over a five-year treatment and what was required from the therapist to help this woman begin to come to terms with her trauma. The profound complications of how non-empathic caregivers influenced her character development will be examined. Countertransference with such patients will be explored. Participants will be encouraged to offer their own clinical vignettes in their work with sexually traumatized patients.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to recognize:
1. The enormous emotional toll on both patient and therapist in work with this level of trauma.
2. How childhood trauma manifests in adulthood and the challenges for the traumatized victim.
3. The typical manifestations of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
