DVD

Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD): Emerging Science and Best Practices


The Trauma Center has been in the forefront of elucidating and defining the complex adaptation of children and adolescents to chronic abuse and neglect, as captured in the proposed diagnosis of Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD), and in developing innovative treatments aimed to specifically address the damage cause by early trauma, abuse and neglect. This workshop will present a comprehensive exploration of DTD. We will present the results from a multilevel, multiyear DTD National Field Trial of over 500 children and adolescents, addressing the clinical necessity, symptom composition and traumatic antecedents of DTD. For the first time, we will share definitive clinical interview and self-report instruments for DTD.  Approaches to treatment of DTD in children, adolescents and transitional age youth will be illustrated through case presentation, videotaped session review and live audience-interactive presentation of three innovative Trauma Center models designed for use with this population: ARC (Attachment, Regulation and Competency), Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment (SMART) and Trauma Drama.

M.D.


Bessel A. van der Kolk, M.D. is a clinician, researcher and teacher in the area of post-traumatic stress. His work integrates developmental, neurobiological, psychodynamic and interpersonal aspects of the impact of trauma and its treatment.

Dr. van der Kolk and his various collaborators have published extensively on the impact of trauma on development, such as dissociative problems, borderline personality and self-mutilation, cognitive development, memory, and the psychobiology of trauma. He has published over 150 peer reviewed scientific articles on such diverse topics as neuroimaging, self-injury, memory, neurofeedback, Developmental Trauma, yoga, theater and EMDR.

He is founder and medical director of the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts. The Trauma Center consists of a well-trained clinical team specializing in the treatment of children and adults with histories of child maltreatment, that applies treatment models that are widely taught and implemented nationwide.  He also created the Trauma Research Foundation, the non-profit arm of the Trauma Center, that is organized to promote clinical, scientific and educational projects.

His most recent 2014 New York Times best seller, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Treatment of Trauma, transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring—specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neurofeedback, somatically based therapies, EMDR, psychodrama, play, yoga, and other therapies.

Dr. van der Kolk is the past president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, and professor of psychiatry at Boston University Medical School. He regularly teaches at conferences, universities, and hospitals around the world.
