EMDRIA Child/Adolescent Special Interest Group presents
The Missing Link in Complex Trauma: Recognizing & Stabilizing Youth with Dissociation
A live-streamed webinar with Frances S. Waters, LMSW, DCSW, LMFT 

Frances S. Waters, DCSW, LMSW, LMFT, is an internationally recognized trainer, consultant, and clinician in the area of childhood trauma, abuse, and dissociation, and has presented extensively, including training programs in Europe, Africa, South American, and North America. She has specialized in the field of child abuse for 40 years. Ms. Waters is the past President of The International Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation (ISSTD) and is the author of  Healing the Fractured Child: Diagnosis and Treatment of Youth with Dissociation (2016)

While EMDRIA has recognized and promoted an understanding of dissociation in complex trauma, practitioners still struggle with this critical part of successful treatment of children with complex trauma. This 4 hour webinar for EMDR practitioners of all experience levels will address differential diagnosis, treatment principles and stabilization using EMDR for this population.

February 23, 2018 10:00 am – 2:00 pm EST, Cost $40
