This training manual for patients who have a trauma-related dissociative disorder includes short educational pieces, homework sheets, and exercises that address ways in which dissociation interferes with essential emotional and life skills, and support inner communication and collaboration with dissociative parts of the personality. Topics include understanding dissociation and PTSD, using inner reflection, emotion regulation, coping with dissociative problems related to triggers and traumatic memories, resolving sleep problems related to dissociation, coping with relational difficulties, and help with many other difficulties with daily life. The manual can be used in individual therapy or structured groups.
Daring to Care model is a group intervention developed to target specifically trauma-symptoms of parents surviving from childhood abuse. Its goal is to prevent intergenerational harmful effects of traumatization by helping parents understand their trauma-related difficulties and find better ways to regulate and cope with them. Daring to Care is designed as an add-on to individual psychotherapeutic treatment. The model consists of 24 topics presented over the course of 30 sessions, each with its own set of exercises and assignments to encourage individual experiential reflection. The Daring to Care intervention can be used for parents with different traumatic experiences in their early care-taking relationships, varying trauma symptoms, and children of different ages from birth to 18 years. The Daring to Care model has been developed to address some of the specific difficulties that traumatized parents struggle with, in order to help them break the intergenerational chain of maltreatment and neglect.
