Working with Traumatized Adolescents: How to Get Unhooked

To work with troubled and traumatized adolescents, it’s crucial for therapists to first foster their own capacity for self-awareness and self-regulation. It’s not easy, especially when our young clients’ extreme reactions-ranging from angry arousal to frozen shutting down-can trigger our own sense of helplessness, failure, dissociation, and rejection. In this workshop, you’ll discover how to get unhooked from this nonfunctional cycle.
