- Present theory on treating complex trauma, PTSD, and survivors of child abuse.
- Identify steps in the process of resolving past relational issues, as well as key ideas about case formulation, and emotion focused theory for understanding trauma.
- Discuss selected research, particularly as related to the change process and implications for practice.
- Give video examples of expert therapists, and case vignettes, related to the treatment of complex trauma. Specifically, these will demonstrate the use of methods inspired by gestalt for dialoguing with imagined significant others in an empty chair.
This workshop will provide hands-on practice, using their own material in small groups and get personalized supervision in the use of these emotion focused interventions.
Dr. Antonio Pascual-Leone is a clinician psychologist and associate professor at the University of Windsor, where he trains psychotherapists and is director of the Emotion Change Lab. He is also an honorary research professor at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) and has been an invited professor at other universities in Canada and abroad. One of Dr. Pascual-Leone’s goals is to study emotional change to help understand how psychotherapy works. He has published 60 articles or chapters, has co-authored a book on treating Complex Trauma (2010), and is currently writing another book on Changing Emotion (2020). Dr. Pascual-Leone has received several career awards from international societies (2009, 2014), and distinguished publication awards from associations in US and Germany (2010; 2016). Another of Dr. Pascual-Leone’s goals is to share the research in a way that will help guide teaching and training the counsellors, psychotherapists, social workers, and doctors who are on the front line of mental health care. In addition to 14 years of university teaching, he has given over 35 clinical workshops around the world and received several more awards for his teaching and mentorship (2016; 2018), recognizing his leadership in education and his innovations teaching psychotherapy skills.

Psychotherapy clients with histories of childhood abuse and complex relational trauma are ubiquitous and have notoriously high drop-out rates. These clients have been unable to heal past emotional injuries and often have difficulty handling exposure-based therapies, which usually are not designed for attachment-related problems. Successful therapy requires helping clients to access and explore painful feelings in order to modify maladaptive emotions. Emotion-Focused Therapy for Complex Trauma (EFTT) is the only empirically-verified treatment for both men and women suffering from complex trauma, and the only research-based treatment for trauma outside of CBT.
