Working with Complex Trauma Clients: Putting the Pieces Together with Janina Fisher, PhD and Frank Anderson, MD



Successful treatment of complex trauma requires being able to work with all parts of your clients—the parts that clients identify with as “me” and the disowned parts they have despised, disowned or dissociated.

Without giving voice to all parts and resolving the conflicts between them, your treatment efforts can fall short, leaving clients to continue their daily struggle with suicidality, self-harm, addiction and other self-destructive behaviours.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Trauma-Informed Stabilization Treatment (TIST) are two of the most effective evidence-based tools available to clinicians today for safely and effectively working with clients’ trauma-related parts.

And this 2-Day online workshop is your chance to train with two of the biggest names in the trauma field as they share the demonstrations, case studies and tips you need to bring the power of these clinical approaches into your own practice!

Watch Frank Anderson, MD, IFS Institute lead trainer and program consultant and Janina Fisher Ph.D., international trauma expert and creator of Trauma-Informed Stabilization Treatment as they show you how you can use these contrasting yet complementary approaches to:

  • Understand complex and unstable clients as systems of fragmented parts
  • Overcome roadblocks to working with extreme symptoms of trauma
  • Re-interpret self-destructive behaviour as the actions of protector parts
  • Repair the injuries of traumatized child parts
  • Bring curiosity and compassion to habitual states of hopelessness, shame and self-blame
  • Heal wounds caused by repeated relational violations.

Don’t miss the opportunity to join not one, but two legendary trauma clinicians and trainers.

Purchase today and feel more confident than ever before in working with all your trauma clients’ parts!
