Research over the past three decades indicates that dissociation is much more common than previously believed and frequently co-occurs with other conditions. Recognition of the presence of dissociation and implementation of effective intervention can radically improve therapeutic outcome for an appreciable sub-group of clients encountered in general clinical settings. This workshop will cover the theoretical, relational, cognitive and concrete intervention components of contextual therapy for treating dissociation and commonly co-occurring difficulties.
