Traditional psychotherapeutic intervention strategies to assist clients overcoming traumatic grief reactions have often failed to achieve successful treatment outcomes. Dysregulation of affect, behavior and relationships as well as other central symptoms of acute stress disorder and PTSD are often the result of dissociative reactions to cope with the loss. This workshop will focus on grief as a resource and how it could be used as an ego strengthening method to overcome the aforementioned symptoms. Ego State Therapy, Ericksonian hypnosis and Somatic Experiencing have proved to be successful methods to rapidly facilitate the containment and transmutation of negative affect and to integrate the deceased as an internal resource. The workshop will include live demonstrations and how to combine these approaches in a brief and effective way.
