About the Course:
Cultural context shapes the presentation of complex trauma. Oppression is one aspect of cultural experiences that is particularly relevant in a discussion of complex trauma and dissociation. This workshop examines three oppressive characteristics of culture that participate in the development of complex trauma. The presenters will explore the concept of social capital and how it shapes disadvantage and ultimately creates the conditions for the intergenerational perpetuation of complex trauma and dissociation. The presentation focuses on the experience of Palestinians in the West Bank, the plight of incarcerated individuals in the US, and the relationship between refugee status complex trauma and dissociation. This presentation hopes to expand the definition of the dissociative processes by exploring the interplay between socially oppressive environments and interpersonal trauma and the development of dissociative disorders.
This course is based on the recorded webinar, Systemic Cultural Oppression: Traumatic and Dissociative Effects created by Heather Hall, MD, Rick A Hohfeler, PsyD, and Susan Gutwill, MS, LCSW in 2020.
