Description

In this panel discussion recording, we discuss the future of women’s trauma treatment. The DSM has come a long way in recognizing trauma is often implicated and may be a cause of many disorders. Moreover, women have often been labelled ‘hysterical’ and are often given a diagnosis of BPD, DID, PTSD or the like. A growing body of research now indicates that women’s behavioral responses that can lead to a diagnosis, might just be ‘natural’ brain response to horrific and unspeakable events. In this session, we take a deep dive into this discussion and what this might mean for the future of women’s trauma treatment.
