Course 3- Origins of Dissociation in Childhood Abuse and Neglect

Course Three - Foundation Level

Before doing this course you are strongly recommended to complete our Courses 1 and 2 in sequence.  There are discounts for purchasing more than one course at a time.

This course 3 provides significant insight into the internal world of the child and adolescent who is dissociative.  The theoretical aspects of child dissociation are presented. The primary development of the self of the child enables the participant to understand the essential needs in the infant and young child for the necessary nurture and attachment.  Without these, trauma might occur, which might lead to significant dissociation in the child.  The course allows the child’s voice to be heard and enables the participant to gain a better understanding of the child’s subjective experiences of dissociation.

It consists of seven units of approximately 20 to 40 minutes each.  On completion a certificate for 5 hours of CPD can be downloaded.
