  • Dissociative Coping in Traumatized Children (Online, On-demand Course)

    Location:

    D2l.msu.edu:  Asynchronous, non-interactive, online, self-paced

    Description:

Children exposed to traumatic events frequently rely on dissociative strategies to manage intolerable fear or pain. Younger children, in particular, may be vulnerable as their skills of managing stress are limited. Dissociative tendencies are easily misinterpreted by caregivers and professionals as intentional or characterological (i.e. “ignoring me” or “lazy”). Implications for assessing and treating traumatized children will be included.
