Dr Joan Haliburn on Trauma, Attachment & Somatization.
There is overwhelming evidence to show that early trauma disrupts the normal integrity of Self and that constant thwarting of the infant’s biological propensity to attach to a caregiver gives rise to a traumatic attachment – varying from insecure to disorganised. Somatisation has been described as an adaptive psychophysiological response to trauma where there is repeated threat of inescapable physical injury, the symptoms of which cannot be explained medically, or may accompany other psychiatric disorders such as severe depression and anxiety. Somatisation involves dissociation when cumulative experiences of chronic devaluation, emotional neglect, physical and/or sexual abuse compound its complexity. In this webinar, Dr Joan Haliburn will discuss the relationships between early trauma and somatisation. She will also provide a brief historical over-view, the changes in DSM-5 leading to its being renamed, Somatic Symptom Disorder, and in more depth, the principles of psychotherapy relating to a case of Somatization Disorder. The webinar will conclude with Q & A.
