Live Trauma Disorders Workshop Series: Why We Need a Developmental Trauma Disorder Diagnosis: Clinical Challenges and Case Studies
Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD) was proposed almost two decades ago as a psychiatric diagnosis for children and adolescents who were traumatically victimized and experienced severe disruption in primary attachment security. DTD was designed to complement post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by identifying trauma-related biopsychosocial dysregulation not included in PTSD, many of which are attributed to other psychiatric disorders. In the past decade, evidence from clinician surveys and research field trial studies has provided evidence of DTD’s validity and status as often comorbid with but distinct from internalizing (including PTSD) and externalizing psychiatric disorders. Join Julian D. Ford, Ph.D., A.B.P.P., as he introduces the domains and symptoms of DTD that are assessed with a semi-structured interview developed and validated for the syndrome, observe examples of DTD symptoms in filmed therapy sessions, and be introduced to a meta-model with five essential principles to guide them in doing psychotherapy with DTD.

Live Wednesday Lecture Series: Approaches to Treatment Resistant OCD
Obsessive-compulsive disorder is common, persistent (in the absence of therapy), and oftentimes disabling.   About 30-40% of patients fail to respond sufficiently to first line treatments of exposure and response prevention (ERP) and serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRIs).  Adjunctive antipsychotics are the only established second line pharmacological approach. Join Wayne Goodman, MD, as he reviews the literature outcomes with DBS, discusses inclusion/exclusion criteria for implanted devices and surgical procedures, as well as sharing his experience with conducting DBS programming.

Live Trauma Disorders Workshop Series: Complex PTSD
The concept of complex posttraumatic stress disorder is an attempt to formulate the protean sequelae of prolonged, repeated trauma. In contrast to a circumscribed traumatic event, prolonged and repeated trauma can occur only when the victim is in a state of captivity, unable to flee, and under the control of the perpetrator. Examples of such conditions include prisons, concentration camps, and slave labor camps or plantations. Such conditions also exist in some religious cults, in brothels and other institutions of organized sexual exploitation, and in some families. The diagnosis of Complex PTSD is now recognized in the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11, 2018). Join Judith L. Herman, M.D. as she will review focus on the diagnosis and treatment of this syndrome, with a particular emphasis on the value of group psychotherapy.
