Not only will you understand how the child becomes fragmented and the internal struggles that exist within the child, but you will also learn how to detect dissociative symptoms in the child for effective intervention. You then can begin to learn how to dismantle the walls that have been built up within the child’s mind from aversive events, e.g. sexual, physical and emotional abuse, painful surgeries, intrusive medical interventions, and catastrophic events. You will learn how to help the child to dismantle those internal walls, safely process traumatic events, repair attachment problems with caretakers, peers, and teachers, perform well academically and go on to lead a healthy, functional life.
You will be taken through the complex process of what the child may be internally experiencing to moving through the healing process of helping the child become a unified self.
