Broken Links: Dissociation in Multiple Guises
Starting 9/15/17 and meeting monthly for 9 months from 2 PM to 4 PM at
96 Bouton Road, South Salem, NY
With Alexis Johnson, PhD

In this Friday afternoon nine meeting study-supervision group we will read about and discuss all forms of dissociation. Due to trauma aspects of self or psyche are separated, sometimes from each other, sometimes from self-awareness, and usually from memory. Clinically, we need to create both verbal and body-based opportunities to enter these freeze moments and soften these protective mechanisms.
We will use three books for our time together: the chapter on dissociation from Patricia DeYoung's Understanding and Treating Chronic Shame, Annie Rogers' Shining Affliction and Philip Bromberg's The Shadow of the Tsunami which provides an in-depth study of all the processes involved.
