Working With Ritual Abuse Survivors: Patterns and Challenges
Total CE Credit Hours: 1
Course Info URL: http://www.ce-credit.com/courses/102261
About the Course:
There are several patterns and behaviors that are common in survivors of ritualized abuse, and these show up in therapy in ways that impact treatment and the therapeutic relationship. Being able to identify those common themes helps both therapist and client see both the adaptive value in them, and how they need to change to allow the client to become self-empowered and free. This workshop focuses on identifying those common patterns and behaviors, and how they need to evolve.
