Presentation at 2016 Seattle Trauma and Dissociation Conference: "Perspectives on Trauma-Informed Care"

TOPIC Of TALK: "Extreme Abuse and Addictions: Touchpoints for Transformation"

 Friday, 10:45 am – 3 pm 

Part I:  “Extreme Abuse 101: An Overview”  10:45 am - 11:45 am

This hour will include a definition of Extreme Abuse (EA) with examples divided into three categories: Pedophile-Porn Rings (PPR’s), Occult-Themed Abuse (commonly called “Ritual” or “Ritualized” Abuse), and Deliberate Trauma or Technical-Based Dissociation (DT-TBD), sometimes referred to as “Mind Control.” Practitioners will be given a tool for self-care when working with these extraordinary, yet often intense, clients.

 Part II: “Extreme Abuse and Addiction: Connections and Transformation”  1 pm - 3 pm

Research has shown that the more abuse someone has suffered, the more likely they will be coping with overlapping addictive patterns. Part Two will explore how to assess EA survivors for the presence of addictions, particularly the harder-to-see problems with finances, time management, relationships, and sexuality. Both “acting out” and “acting in” or deprivation/avoidance patterns will be explored. Participants will be given a tool to help survivors self-define “sobriety” and help practitioners offer support and accountability.

The second hour will include a panel presentation of EA survivors in 12-step addiction recovery who will discuss how they first recognized their addictions, how their trauma related to their compulsive patterns, and what has worked to guide them on a path to healthier choices. They will share how therapy and 12-step addiction recovery can work together to strengthen the healing process.

Books will be on sale at the Exposition Hall during the three day conference.
