Risky Business: Working with Compulsive and Self-Endangering Behaviours in Trauma Survivors

John Briere, PhD
presented by MAGentix

9:00am – 4:00pm, Saint Paul University, Ottawa
Light refreshments served

Risky Business: Working with Compulsive and Self-endangering Behaviours in Trauma Survivors is Dr. John Briere’s newest, most innovative seminar.

Survivors of trauma and early attachment disturbance are at elevated risk of a variety compulsive and self-endangering behaviours, ranging from suicidality and self-injury to substance abuse, indiscriminant sexual activities, and binge eating.

Many of these difficulties are seen as symptoms of a personality disorder, behavioural addiction, or impulse control disorder. However, emerging research indicates that they are more accurately understood as coping/homeostatic responses to triggered childhood memories and inadequate emotional regulation capacities.

Calling on his upcoming book, Treating Risky and Compulsive Behaviour in Trauma Survivors John Briere presents an innovative, integrated approach to self-endangering behaviour, the Reactive Avoidance model (RAm). Calling on new research on memory reconsolidation, implicit processing, and revisions to habituation theory, this treatment system directly targets the memory/dysregulation dynamic, with interventions such as

• emotional regulation training;
• mindfulness, metacognitive awareness, and emotion surfing procedures;
• ReGAINing;
• implicit memory processing;
• in vivo treatment of implicit memory activations; and
• harm reduction.

A new treatment component, trigger management, increases client autonomy, resilience, and problem-solving. Approaches to three risky behaviours will be presented in detail: self-injury, risky sexual behaviour, and bingeing and purging. Attendees will be provided with newly developed worksheets and assessment instruments that organize and inform the treatment process.
