    Trauma – particularly in the form of childhood maltreatment in the context of attachment relationships – is perhaps the most consistently implicated predictor of mental health disorder. This talk will consider what it is about trauma that makes it such a disruptive experience and, often, so complex to treat. It will be argued that there are three, related processes at work. The first is the impact of traumatic experiences on the attachment system as a basic biobehavioral system that plays a key role in the regulation of distress.  Second is the effect of such experiences on subsequent problems in mentalizing. The third potential impact of trauma on social learning and the emergence of epistemic mistrust, that is, the closing off of the mind to the possibility of accessing other people’s minds as safe and reliable sources of knowledge about how to navigate the social environment. The presentation will explore aspects of therapies that have been shown in outcomes studies to be effective in helping individuals struggling with the long term effects of adversity.

    At the conclusion of this live presentation, participants should be able to:

    • Attendees will be able to identify the link between trauma and the emergence of the non-mentalizing modes.
    • Attendees will be able to interpret the manifestations of post-trauma phenomenology and behavior in terms of the impact of trauma on self-structure.
    • Attendees will recognize the relevance of social referencing to the framing of a frightening and otherwise overwhelming experience.
    • Attendees will be able to pinpoint components of a range of psychosocial clinical interventions which lead to the reduction of post-traumatic effects of adversity.

    Menninger's Family Education Day offers patients' families the opportunity to learn about psychiatric, behavioral and addictive disorders to elevate their understanding of treatment approaches. Additionally, participants will learn ways to strengthen understanding within the family. Equally important is the chance to meet other families going through similar experiences.

    The day's educational sessions are led by Menninger faculty and staff and cover topics that include attachment, mentalizing, psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy, recovery planning and more.
