This master clinician workshop is based upon the presenters’ 30 years of working with patients with severe avoidant coping modes in a variety of clinical disorders including personality disorders, dissociative disorders and complex trauma. It focuses on interventions for the challenges these clients present and the schema activation and mode triggering, which therapists encounter in working with them. The overall focus will be on experiential interventions to get through or around the Avoidant Coping Modes, heal the frightened or traumatized Vulnerable Child and diminish the control of the Dysfunctional Critic Modes. Creative adaptations of imagery rescripting and the development of the client’s “Good Parent” (part of the Healthy Adult mode) will be presented and demonstrated. Techniques to deal with flashbacks, avoidance, detachment and dissociation will be addressed – both in the session and in plans for clients to use outside of therapy. Case examples of clients who were successfully treated will be presented. The training will incorporate didactic sections, demonstrations by trainers in which the workshop participants play clients, and opportunities for participants to practice these interventions with coaching and feedback. Participants will receive handouts, which they can use to implement workshop interventions in their clinical work.
