This workshop will look at mental ill health through the lens of dissociation. Any problem can be seen as having an element of dissociation, and so learning to recognize the dissociative aspects that produce suffering and working to assist the client gain control of this aspect of their experience will simply and briefly reduce suffering and promote healing. Demonstration and practice will move this idea from a useful concept to a lived experience that can then become a practical tool.
Describe the dissociative aspect of 3 common mental health presentations.
Demonstrate moving a dissociated client to an associated state stating the handles you observe so they are able to grasp them to gain control over their experience.
