Are you looking for CPD training for your team to do together – at your own pace and place? Are you a survivor group looking for psychoeducational resources?  Are you an NHS department wanting to provide introductory training for your team?

We might have the answer.

Our training course ‘Dissociation and DID: The Fundamentals’ was originally a live day and has since been converted to an online course. However, it is now also available as an offline Trainer’s Pack for delivery in-house.

This pack contains everything you need for someone to pick up and deliver in-house, with audio-visual recordings, and resources including PowerPoint handouts, buzz group questions, suggested timings and additional reading all packaged conveniently and ready to go. It doesn’t even require an internet connection and instructions are provided for delivering it via laptop, projector and even just via CDs.

This is an ideal resource for groups and organisations such as counselling centres, Rape Crisis centres, NHS departments, social work teams, adoption and fostering, police and probation, and peer support groups. It can be used multiple times with groups from 3-30 . Blank CPD certificates are also included in the pack for the organiser to complete and hand out.

The training is aimed at both professionals and survivors alike and can be delivered in a range of settings – to anyone who would benefit from understanding more about trauma, dissociation and DID.

What is dissociation? Why does it occur? How does it manifest? When does it lead to a dissociative disorder? What are depersonalisation and derealisation? Are dissociative disorders for real? How do you support someone who suffers from trauma-related dissociation? How do you recover? What is it like to be dissociative?

Dissociation is a normal response to trauma, and this online course will cover a range of issues fundamental to understanding this phenomenon and how it presents in trauma survivors’ lives. It is delivered by Carolyn Spring, Director of PODS and author of Recovery is my best revenge: my experience of trauma, abuse and dissociative identity disorder.
