Conversation :  #Me Too

The tidal wave of people coming forward with stories of sexual assault is
having a major impact on our country; this appears to be a transforming moment
in time. Women – and men - are feeling more liberated to tell their story,
and abusers are paying the price. Sexual aggression is a problem that is
deeply rooted in our culture--one in four women and one in six men will be
sexually assaulted in their lifetimes. Will this moment of reckoning change
our culture?

Recent developments are impacting our work with clients who have been victims
(or perpetrators). We are hearing stories of abuse and discovering the
characteristic ways that our clients have processed these experiences. How
does this moment enrich our understanding of our clients –-- or of ourselves?


Course Objectives:
Participants in this course will learn the following skills:

1.     Attendees will apply knowledge of dissociation to work with clients who have been abused.
2.     Attendees will learn how to use their countertransference when working with abusers or perpetrators.
3.     Attendees will be able to identify some transference/countertransference positions when working with abusers or perpetrators.
