For many years, the practice of psychotherapy for dissociative disorders was largely focused on working with adult survivors. Over the last 10 to 15 years, there has been increased recognition and focus on working with younger trauma survivors in developmentally appropriate ways to more effectively reduce or eliminate the need for dissociative processes as an ongoing coping mechanism. A clear advantage of this approach is that the earlier developmentally these coping mechanisms are addressed, the less firmly entrenched they are.
Bob Slater, BS, MSW, LCSW-R has been working with traumatized individuals for the past 20 years. He began his career working in residential programs for abused, neglected and adjudicated adolescents. He followed this with work in a special education program for emotionally disturbed and developmentally disabled children and adolescents. He has, for the last 10 years, owned and operated a group psychotherapy practice that has focused on offering services to both children and adults with a special emphasis on treating traumatic stress and dissociative disorders. Robert is Co-founder of the Centerstate New York Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, is a former board member of ISSTD, Chair’s the child and adolescent special interest group, is a member of the finance and communications and marketing committee.

It’s nice to see these webinars as an effort to make training and connection to ISSTD more accessible throughout the year. ~ Jennifer – Austin, Texas
It exceeded my expectations. The presentation was very clear and well presented. I appreciated the ways the presenter emphasized how to tailor the yoga use to the individual person’s needs.
