Prerequisites: Preceptorship 2

As children become exposed to the myriad of feelings and issues that accompany the sorrows surrounding the death of a pet or grandparent, the rage of family violence, the embarrassment of being caught in a lie or stealing, and the endless stream of assaults upon their self esteem, powerful images can become imprinted into the mind that continue to effect them throughout their adult life. Imagery can be an excellent interventional tool in working with kids coping with acute or chronic stress, pain, or medical illness, and it can play a critical role in helping children to deal with developmental crises, accelerate learning, expand creativity, and enhance self-esteem in ATS-3A.

Imagery with Adult Survivors of Childhood Trauma
Course ID: ATS-3B
Instructors: David Bresler, PhD, LAc, Marty Rossman, MD, Roxanne Whitelight, MA
CE Credit: 6.5 Hours
Prerequisites: ATS-3A

Imagery can be useful in helping people to recover lost memories, to connect with and work through feeling states that have been split away, to find and strengthen inner resources, to grieve their losses, and to build new self-identities that grow beyond the limits of their wounds. At the same time, there are special precautions that one must be aware of when using imagery with people who have poor internal organization and vulnerable ego structures. ATS-3B discusses how IGI℠ can facilitate healing the "wounded child" and "present adult" as well as techniques for evoking the "inner healer." False memory syndrome and the issue of forgiveness are also addressed.

Many of the same approaches that are helpful in working on psychological issues are also helpful to people coping with physical illness, though special precautions and caveats apply. In addition, imagery can be helpful in relieving pain or other symptoms, helping people to tolerate difficult medical procedures, and in stimulating healing responses in the body. Special attention is also given to issues in chronic pain, cancer, and AIDS as models for some of the most demanding and enriching work one can do.

The program also discusses hospice work with dying patients and their caregivers, emphasizing imagery techniques found to be effective in controlling pain, stress, and anticipatory nausea and vomiting, as well as techniques that caregivers can benefit from using.
