Developmental Trauma Disorder: A proposed diagnosis for DSM V – Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD
Many traumatized children and chronically traumatized adults do not have a diagnostic category that begins to cover what they suffer from and hence no research or treatment protocols that really address their problems. This talk will outline a proposal to address this deficiency.
Psychosocial Therapeutic Interventions for Children with Traumatic Stress Reactions – John A. Fairbank, PhD
An overview of the current state-of-the-art in the development and dissemination of empirically supported interventions for child traumatic stress.
Treating Adult Complex Trauma Survivors – Marylene Cloitre, PhD
Differing treatment approaches will be examined as they are relevant to various “core symptom sets” associated with chronic traumatisation.
