Please contact us if you would like specific training on assessment / management of complex trauma, PTSD or Dissociative Disorders. Training can be arranged for half or full-day training sessions, and would include what dissociation is, origins, everyday living with the condition, case studies and working out strategic plans for either NHS or independent organisations.
Mike has presented at international conferences in Belfast, Berlin and Copenhagen for ESTD, and at the ISST-D conference in Montreal along with First Person Plural and The Pottergate Centre. He worked alongside First Person Plural on a series of presentations from Cardiff to Glasgow of the DVD "A Logical Way of Being".
Mike presents on the four-day Foundation training course for ESTD, helping professionals understand the background to Dissociative Disorders, the framework for treatment and the setting up of services to help work alongside people with Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Current Training Programmes include:
Assessment and Diagnosis of Dissociative Disorders
Managing Dissociation in Clinical Practice
The Impact of Developmental Trauma
Assessing Outcomes for Long-Term Therapy
Diagnosis using the Structured Clinical Interview (SCID-D)

Feedback from a full-day training provided to The Sue Lambert trust in Norwich on the Assessment and Treatment of Dissociative Disorders
Our last conference workshop was at the ESTD-UK two day conference in York, March 21-22. This workshop was done with Mike and Carol, the CTAD Clinic Expert-by-Experience, and went into their work together in the four years of therapy carried out at the clinic. It is a story of dedication, innovation and humour, and is just one of many learning opportunities at the conference. The feedback from this workshops was excellent, thank you to all that attended!
Mike and Carol also presented to a group of GPs from West Cheshire in their education forum as part of building awareness regarding the referral pathway (see 'GP Portal' for information), and for Dorset NHS Trust on diagnosing dissociation using the SCID-D.
