Short Course 08 – Gabrielle Peacock, MBBS – Working with Dissociation: When Reconnecting is Not Enough
This workshop will look at mental ill health through the lens of dissociation. Any problem can be seen as having an element of dissociation, and so learning to recognize the dissociative aspects that produce suffering and working to assist the client gain control of this aspect of their experience will simply and briefly reduce suffering and promote healing. Demonstration and practice will move this idea from a useful concept to a lived experience that can then become a practical tool.
- Describe the dissociative aspect of 3 common mental health presentations
- Move a dissociated client to a more associated state articulating the obvious handles that you observe so that they are more able to grasp them and manipulate them to gain control over their experience
