Workshop Description

In this webinar, Dr. Ross will explain the links between trauma, depression and borderline personality disorder (BPD). He will do so by describing the principles and techniques of his Trauma Model Therapy (TMT). TMT was developed for treatment of people with complex PTSD, dissociative disorders and BPD including the extensive comorbidity that goes along with them. This often includes depression, substance abuse, panic disorder, OCD, eating disorders and somatic symptom disorders. TMT can be adapted for people with less severe trauma and less complex mental health problems and is suitable for all practice settings.

 

Dr. Ross will explain the principles of TMT including: the problem of attachment to the perpetrator; the locus of control shift; the problem is not the problem; just say ‘no’ to drugs; addiction is the opposite of desensitization; and the victim-rescuer-perpetrator triangle. The two core features of the therapy are a focus on conflicted, ambivalent attachment and the self-blame and self-hatred arising from the locus of control shift. These two aspects of the model are based on the biology of mammalian attachment and developmental psychology. Techniques for the psychotherapy of BPD will be illustrated through case examples. The therapy involves a blend of cognitive, systems, behavioral, experiential and psychodynamic techniques within a unified theory.
