In these presentations, Dr. Marilyn Charles will be leading seminars related to persons struggling with psychosis and traumas. As she wrote in her book,Working with Trauma,“I will offer ways of thinking and of being with individuals who have been fundamentally destabilized by trauma, hoping that these ideas will help you to keep your bearings through the difficult—but rewarding—work required” (p. xii). This will be an in-depth look at the different manifestations and meanings patients express and experience, replete with clinical examples and illustrations.
