Statewide Training Events
Join OVWA's Wendy Ricks Hoff and ODVN's Leah Stone and Sonia Ferencik for Working with Dysregulated and Dissociated Survivors: Advanced Skills for Advocates. This training is open and free of charge to all OVWA and ODVN Members!
Traumatic experiences impact how survivors navigate stress and emotions for long after the abuse ends. Although this knowledge can help normalize traumatic stress responses, it can still be difficult as an advocate to navigate the responses of survivors and our physiological reactions in the moment. Further, Dissociation is a traumatic stress response that is often misunderstood and is shrouded in stigma. Pop culture and media portray dissociation at its extremes, but many survivors experience dissociation in their everyday lives without having the language to understand what is happening. This training uses a trauma-informed lens to view distress, dysregulation, de-escalation, and dissociation, and provides participants with practical knowledge and skills to identify dysregulation, education to recognize the signs of dissociation, and practical strategies to promote de-escalation, regulation, re-integration, and embodiment which can apply not only in work with survivors, but with ourselves.
