By Laurie Pearlman, PhD
In this training, Dr. Pearlman describes why the ending of a long-term therapy relationship is an integral piece of the work to be managed, within the same frame and with the same thoughtfulness as the rest of the therapy. Because attachment (and therefore abandonment) issues are often central in therapies with complex trauma clients, poorly managed endings can create retraumatization. Dr. Pearlman offers tools and techniques to manage a smooth transition. This is an intermediate course intended for practicing clinicians.
