About the Course:
This workshop will provide cutting-edge training on the organized abuse of children and adults from two international leaders in the study of extreme abuse.
Professionals in a range of sectors continue to encounter children and adults with dissociative disorders who disclose early traumatization and severe exploitation within abusive families and criminal networks, including sadism, ritual and torture.Accumulating forensic and legal evidence from child abuse investigations indicate that these disclosures should be taken seriously. Clinicians, law enforcement and policy-makers around the world are grappling with the sexual exploitation of victims with deliberately induced dissociation within black markets and violent subcultures.
Drawing on original research, Dr Salter will explain the criminological dimensions of organized abuse, including the most common victimization scenarios and the experiences of victims and survivors. He will outline the existing gaps in policy and law that enable organized abuse to flourish, and point to areas of emerging and promising practice. Dr Sachs will discuss the specific significance of the abuse being organized on the process of creating and maintaining the more severe forms of DID, and outline her treatment approach with adults enmeshed in organized abuse and the intersecting role of dissociation and attachment. She will also discuss severe and unusual self-harm as an additional symptom of DID in children,
Attendees at the workshop can expect to leave with further insights and renewed confidence in treating very complex dissociative clients, and with expanded understanding of the broader criminal and social contexts in which organized abuse takes place.
This course is based on the recorded webinar, Organized Abuse – Organized Abuse: Criminology, Traumatic Impact and Implications for Treatment created by Michael Salter, PhD and Adah Sachs, PhD, UKCP reg. Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist in 2019.
