About This Workshop

Dr Straus is author of:

 

Treating Trauma in Adolescents

 

To work with troubled and traumatized adolescents, it is crucial for therapists to first foster their own capacity for self-awareness and self-regulation. It is not easy, especially when our young clients’ extreme reactions—ranging from angry arousal to frozen shutting down — can trigger one’s sense of helplessness, failure, dissociation, and rejection. In this workshop, Dr. Straus will describe Developmental-Relational Therapy (DRT), an attachment-based model of trauma treatment. Participants will learn and practice mindful, empathic strategies that help teens feel more secure, connected, present and regulated.  In addition, participants will discover how to get unhooked from old enactments.

Workshop Objectives

Participants Will Learn:

 

  • Specific adolescent attachment styles that interact with or trigger our own
  • The React, Reflect, and Respond approach to corrective relational experiences
  • The Four M’s—Mirroring, Mentalizing, Mindfulness, and Moduation — to increase connection and mood regulation
  • How to use attunement—including strategies of validation, self-disclosure, and the compassionate sharing of adult feelings and opinions-—to bring traumatized teens back into relationships with themselves and with their clinicians
