An Introduction to Working with Adults who have Complex Trauma

with Sandy Hume, LMFT

Friday, November 1, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., Irvine Graduate Campus

Many adults who present with anxiety, depression, substance abuse issues, and relationship struggles are survivors of complex trauma. Complex trauma is a series of events, often in childhood, that leave an individual overwhelmed, struggling to cope, and shifting their beliefs and feelings about themselves, others, and the world. Research shows us that secure attachments can guard individuals from trauma and help them develop healthy coping strategies. Complex trauma survivors often did not experience this assistance and developed coping strategies that in the present day have become a hindrance. As therapists, we can help these individuals heal. This talk is an introduction to working with complex trauma survivors as well as a discussion of resources to develop your knowledge further.
