The Spectrum of Emotions
In this session Mrs. Engle will review the developmental effects caused by unresolved trauma and its impact on the addictive client. Often these clients have a difficult time identifying, tolerating, and regulating their emotions. Therefore, it is important to provide an integrated approach that emphasizes mood state regulation. The “Spectrum of Emotions” is a conceptual tool that helps to identify the root of all addictive behaviors, and the often co-occurring physical and mental health symptoms. She will also provide specific cognitive and experiential treatment interventions. This treatment approach addresses clients who are stuck in addictive and self-defeating behaviors. Clinical examples and case vignettes will ed.
Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the effects of trauma on addiction and mental health symptoms
- Identify the dissociative root underlying all addictive behaviors
- Learn specific treatment techniques
