About the Course:

This course is based on Selected Topics in Work with Dissociative Identity Disorder
This 90-minute webinar will explains how to recognize and decode the dissociative surface, and how to make interventions based on a process that may never be conveyed in a completely verbal form. Several other approaches to understanding the process of the dissociative patient are also explored.

Much as the person naïve to nature can walk through an area and fail to notice most of the wildlife close at hand, the therapist who does not appreciate what complex chronic dissociative disorder patients are communicating when classical overt phenomena are not in evidence will fail to appreciate most of the less dramatic but extremely important messages that dissociative disorder patients are conveying on an ongoing basis.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, The Music Behind the Lyrics: Mastering the Dissociative Surface to Facilitate the Understanding and Treatment of DID and DDNOS created by Richard P. Kluft, M.D., Ph.D in 0.
