Wickenburg, AZ (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
The Meadows Senior Fellow, Jerry Boriskin, Ph.D., CAS, will be a conference speaker at the 2012 Scottsdale Summit Conference from October 25 – 27 in Scottsdale, AZ at the Scottsdale Cottonwood Resort. The theme of the conference is “Breaking Free: Trauma, Mindfulness and Process Addictions.”
Dr. Boriskin will present “Dancing with Demons: A Multi-Dimensional and Transcendent Approach to Conceptualizing and Treating Complex PTSD with Co-Occurring Addictive Disorders” on Friday afternoon, October 26. His focus: Whereas PTSD has been captured within Medical Model nomenclature, the true complexity, scope and impact of severe and recurrent trauma is often missed by current models and clinician's comprehension of this powerful condition. Competent treatment of severely wounded patients requires a conceptual model that embraces the range and scope of this powerful phenomenon.
Dr. Boriskin has been at the forefront of the treatment of PTSD, addiction, and co-occurring disorders for more than 30 years. His 30 years of observation, conceptualization, reframing and articulation has helped clinicians gain a much wider range of understanding of PTSD, its inner dynamics and pathways to treating the most challenging clients we encounter. He is the author of several books, including PTSD and Addiction: A Practical Guide for Clinicians and Counselors and At Wit’s End: What Families Need to Know When a Loved One is Diagnosed with Addiction and Mental Illness.
The Meadows is a sponsor and an exhibitor at the conference with Sharon Pollei, Business Development Liaison for The Meadows, in attendance.
