Ottawa, ON

Event Description

On behalf of the Therapists from the Centre for Treatment of Sexual Abuse and Childhood Trauma, we are delighted to invite you to our annual conference.
Takes place Fri, Sep 19, 2008 at 9 AM to 5 PM, at the RA Centre, Canada Room.
This year we have the good fortune to have Dr. Clare Pain return to the Capital to share her knowledge and experience in her work with the impact of trauma. 
Dr. Pain will help us understand the concept of ‘Mentalization' as a focus in treating individuals who have suffered trauma. While the use of the term ‘mentalizing' may appear new to many therapists, it is essentially a manner by which one perceives and interprets one's world. However, when one's cognitive, psychological and emotional development has been interrupted by traumatic experiences, the capacity to accurately process one's inner life or interact with others is often severely impaired.
Dr. Pain will share her rich experience in using this concept to assist clients to understand and process their traumatic history and to arrive at a more integrated and internalized capacity for self-regulation and self-awareness.
Take this opportunity to join us to share your experience, discuss challenging client issues and improve your own mentalizing capacity.
We look forward to seeing many of you who have attended our conferences in the past, as well as meeting first timers.
Mary Hogan-Finlay, Ph.D., C.Psych
Clinical Coordinator
Centre for Treatment of Sexual Abuse and Childhood Trauma
