Pub Discussion

Treating childhood trauma in adults: sorting the fact from fiction

This presentation will critically review the evidence-base for current treatments for childhood trauma in adults, and highlight some important clinical issues and debates associated with working with complex trauma-exposed clients. Importantly, a range of myths will be highlighted in relation to trauma-focused work, the use of exposure, and the neurobiological basis of trauma.

The empirical evidence for varying treatment approaches will be examined, including CBT approaches such as prolonged exposure, phase-based approaches, EMDR, schema work and imaginal rescripting and cognitive processing therapy; and more recent third-wave approaches such as mindfulness, ACT and trauma-focused yoga.

A clinical emphasis in the talk will be on the importance of an evolving and individualized case formulation, staging and timing of treatment, and managing risk, therapy interference, the therapeutic relationship and the unpredictable.

Check out the flyer for more information.
