Confer
The Assessment and Treatment of PTSD from an Attachment Perspective
A one-day seminar led by Dr Felicity de Zulueta

Saturday 25 January 2014 - Edinburgh


This seminar, led by Dr Felicity de Zulueta - one of the UK's foremost experts on working with PTSD, complex PTSD and dissociative disorders - offers an appraisal of contemporary psychotherapeutic approaches to working with trauma and the most recent developments in our understanding of how trauma is embedded in the mind-body system.

The day includes a review of ways in which simple PTSD may be resolved, drawing a clear distinction between this and more complex defences that involve dissociation. Felicity de Zulueta will be emphasising the importance of recognising attachment and relational trauma as the foundation of complex post-traumatic symptoms in adulthood and we will explore therapeutic strategies to help such individuals cope with overwhelming affect and their unsafe internal worlds. The nature of this work will be considered with reference to personal and clinical experience and participants are invited to prepare for the day by considering patients or clients they might like to discuss.
