Many children have suffered from the impact on their lives and in their communities from the 2011 Tsunami disaster in northern Japan. Research has shown that therapeutic intervention can significantly improve such children’s’ lives. This workshop focuses on the psychodynamic approach with particular influence from the views of Heinz Kohut’s self psychology and is geared towards the treatment of children suffering from severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

This five hour workshop will highlight the reality of traumatic stress in the daily lives of children exposed to a natural disaster and explore the complexities of treating these children. The perspective used is that of the therapists’ human responses to promote healing in the child. Thus, a good part of the discussion will center on the need for therapists to monitor and control negative countertransference in dealing with children whose own responses are meant to assist them deal with their own trauma-altered sense of self within the context of their unique culture and heritage.

The initial hour session will provide an overview of the literature on childhood PTSD to include epidemiological studies and various intervention strategies such as community approaches, play therapy and group approaches. The second session will focus on theoretical aspects of children suffering from PTSD with an emphasis on the damaged self syndrome. The final three hours will focus on treatment proceeding from stabilization to reliving the trauma to working through and on specific transference and countertransference aspects with this population.
