Managing Dissociation through the Use of Soothing & Grounding Skills



Dates



Description

Social workers and mental health practitioners are often faced with attachment related concerns in their clients, which leads to dissociative symptoms. Practitioners struggle with keeping their clients grounded in order to effectively resolve traumatic experiences.

This training provides an opportunity for staff and clinicians working with children, adolescents and young adults to increase their confidence in talking to clients about trauma, identifying dissociative symptoms, and how to effectively manage these symptoms through creative and play-based soothing and grounding tools.

This workshop will provide scripts, demonstration videos, and photo images of varied ways of using the techniques. Participants will also practice a variety of the 30 soothing and grounding tools.

These easy to learn, practical, hands-on techniques are for use with children, adolescents and young adults.

Learning Objectives:

  • Apply “What is” Trauma and Dissociation scripts to adults, teens and children
  • Explain dissociation to parents and ways to help support their children through grounding and soothing strategies
  • Apply interviewing questions for parents, teens and children to inquire more about dissociation symptoms
  • Use movement interventions to manage trauma and dissociation in the body by learning physical relaxation strategies
  • Manage the symptoms of dissociation, intrusive thoughts and hyperarousal using grounding techniques including scents, TV Tool, Dial, Shrinking, yoga flow and Lisa Najavits Seeking Safety grounding techniques
  • Demonstrate in a practice session at least 6 soothing tools to reduce distress and increase a sense of calm. Techniques include Eraser, Shield, Finger Holds, and Worry Worms.
