Janina Fisher, Ph.D. is a licensed Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Director of Khiron House Clinics UK.  Known for her expertise as a clinician, author, and consultant, she is past president of the New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation, an EMDR International Association Credit Provider, a faculty member of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, and a former Instructor, Harvard Medical School.  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.  She is the author of Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors and co-author with Pat Ogden of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy:  Interventions for Trauma and Attachment.

About the workshop: 

Early childhood trauma has lasting and dramatic effects on attachment formation and on the later capacity for intimacy and mutuality.  Instead of experiencing relationship as a haven of safety, traumatized couple are driven by powerful wishes and fears of closeness.

This workshop will address the impact of early neglect, attachment failure, and childhood trauma on couple relationships.  Using interventions drawn from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a somatically-oriented talking therapy for trauma, we will explore how to address the intense emotions and impulsive reactions that undermine the sense of safety and hope in each partner and re-create the experience of threat.
