Traume Zoom workshop with Barton Ewans 5.11. og 18.11. 2020

Online Zoom Workshops med Ph.d., psykolog Barton Evans fra USA:

 

Trauma and the Rorschach

 

Barton har beskrevet indholdet således:

 

Our first workshop will focus how psychological trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and dissociative identity disorders (DID) present on the Rorschach, with a special emphasis on the importance of the embodiment of psychological trauma.

 

Dr. Evans will begin with a review of three major perspectives to understand the effects of psychological trauma- 1. Medical diagnosis; 2. Physiological response to prolonged stressful situations; and 3. PTSD as a human experience from an interpersonal perspective of PTSD. The advantages and difficulties of each perspective will be briefly discussed.

 

We will next turn to a review of the psychological literature on the Rorschach and psychological trauma. Here we will look into where psychological trauma “lives” on the Rorschach.  We will examine four different Rorschach trauma indicators in some depth and also discuss validity issues (overreporting, malingering, and deception) so essential to forensic assessment. Last we will briefly review Evans’s Building Empathy through Assessment (BETAssessment) approach, an adaptation of Therapeutic Assessment, and how it can be useful in integrating Rorschach findings in treatment and sometimes in forensic assessment.

 

In our second workshop, Dr. Evans will present a BETAssessment case of a 20-year-old woman with plaguing, though indistinct, physical and psychological symptoms, who had limited treatment success. Dr. Evans will show how the Rorschach revealed previously unspoken and untreated psychological trauma and assisted this young woman to “find her voice” to describe previously inchoate and “locked in” inner suffering.

 

Barton har et mangeårigt kendskab til Rorschach. Han har skrevet artikler om Rorschach og redigeret bøger om Rorschach bl.a. i forbindelse med retspsykiatriske cases. Se litteraturlisten. Som tidligere annonceret havde vi planlagt en workshop her i Danmark med Barton om retspsykiatriske cases og forældrekompetenceundersøgelser, men vi har måttet udsætte den til næste år pga. Corona situationen i USA og Danmark.
