Explore the distinctive challenges of working with dissociated clients with Christine Courtois, the cofounder of The CENTER: Post-Traumatic Disorders Program in Washington, DC.

    Thank you very much for your providing this program. It was excellent. Dr. Courtois is not only skilled but very calming and this is no doubt a huge part of her effectiveness.

    This comment is really a question for Chis Courtois. How likely is a client to dissociate during an adult traumatic experience (possible PTSD)with no previous experience of dissociation? How would this present during a first session?
    Thank you for your informative presentation.

    Thank you for offering the 'fruits of your labor' to enhance my skills in signs to look for, questions to ask, ways to work with people who have complex trauma experiences and who are 'into the void'. Very helpful. As usual, Rich, your comments and questions elevate useful info. Thanks.

    Many thanks for your insights into understanding and helping your clients deal with their traumas. I was glad to hear about the age level of using dissociation as a survival technique. I find parts theory and Jungian aspects helpful to empower my clients. These webinars have been invaluable to me so thanks also to Rich for making them happen.

    A million thanks for the interview w/Dr. Courtois. I came across the 1st edition of "Healing the Incest Wound" at the rape crisis agency where I work. It was tremendously helpful.Just had an opportunity to fill in for a vacationing colleague, seeing someone with DID. What an amazing and educational experience. this material will come in handy as I screen further the folks I see at the agency as many have acknowledged varying levels of dissociation. I will also seek out "Recollections" as I had not been trained in how to work with people who related having "dreams" of abuse, with limited memory/sensory input attached. Thanks again for a terrific interview and the accompanying materials.

    Terrific series.Are serious illnesses, like Lupus, fibromyalgia, celiac, and other autoimmune disorders common with severe childhood abuse? My client has 7 self parts. Most of them have emailed me and come out in sessions, indicating their need to be heard and seen as well as trust in me. They all have names and ages. My client loses a lot of time & is very freightened, and now angry(this is growth), of these parts. This is challenging, facinating, and difficult work. In my 45 years as a therapist, this is the first DID I have known.

    I enjoyed this presentation and found it very informative . I have treated DID in the past (I'm now retired) and want to know if you work with the client's systems (self-parts). I know I spent alot of time working with this in the past. Amy Fleming LCSW
