Adults with issues around childhood parent loss may discover in treatment that their ungrieved grief is complicated by traumatic experiences and post traumatic symptoms. Similarly, adults whose presenting problem is childhood trauma may uncover devastating parental absences and a lost childhood. Using case examples, participants will discuss the difficulties of recognizing, understanding and addressing grief processes when these are complicated by post traumatic anxiety and dissociation. Grief and Trauma; Trauma and Grief We will cover Grief as it relates to stage based trauma therapy.
