Treatment of Victims of Interpersonal Violence: A Life-Span Approach

Donald Meichenbaum, PhD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Monday, November 27, 2017, Multi-Faith Centre/Koffler House (569 Spadina Avenue, Toronto)

The incidence of interpersonal violence is rampant, whether in the form of sexual abuse, domestic violence, terrorist attacks, or combat. This workshop begins with a consideration of the incidence and psychosocial and neurobiological impacts of such victimization and the treatment implications. It will be based on a lifespan perspective that includes children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly.

Dr. Donald Meichenbaum, one of the founders of CBT and a preeminent leader in the psychology field, will present a Case Conceptualization Model of risk and protective factors to inform your treatment decision-making.

A major focus will be on what distinguishes clients who develop complex PTSD and concurrent disorders from those who demonstrate resilience. Specific practical ways to bolster client resilience across the lifespan will be presented. Two major evidenced-based treatment approaches will be contrasted: namely, the trauma-memory-processing approaches versus present-centred, client-oriented skills-training approaches. The workshop will discuss how these two treatment approaches can be integrated to treat patients with concurrent disorders of complex PTSD and substance abuse. You will also learn how to conduct such treatment by engaging family members (couples therapy) and school staff.

All workshop participants will receive a “To Do” List that is designed to encourage deliberate practice to enhance clinical expertise.
