2022 Living Health Balance Hope Symposium


Presented by Janina Fisher, Ph.D.


Numerous research studies on Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) have demonstrated a statistically significant relationship between a diagnosis of BPD and a history of childhood abuse. But despite that research evidence, BPD is rarely treated as a trauma-related condition. Instead, the symptoms of these clients are often pathologized as “attention-seeking,” “manipulative,” or “hysterical.” But when we understand BPD as part of the living neurobiological legacy of trauma, we can utilize new techniques and tools that support the therapeutic relationship and decrease the symptoms.

Educational Objectives
• Describe three consequences of childhood trauma
• Discriminate the symptoms of trauma from symptoms of personality disorder
• Identify two somatic techniques for regulating autonomic dysregulation
• Identify two ego state techniques for decreasing separation anxiety and self-destructive behavior. 

Janina Fisher, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist and former instructor, Harvard Medical School. An international writer and lecturer on the treatment of trauma, she is co-author with Pat Ogden of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Attachment and Trauma and author of Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Overcoming Self-Alienation and Transforming the Living Legacy of Trauma. Dr. Fisher lectures and teaches nationally and internationally on topics related to the integration of the neurobiological research and newer trauma treatment paradigms into traditional therapeutic modalities.

This training will be held via Zoom. The week of the event, you will be provided a Zoom link for the training. All attendees must have their video connected at all times to ensure event attendance and to earn CEUs. No call-ins via phone will be allowed.
