Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & Alice in Wonderland Syndrome
CPTSD shares the symptomatology of PTSD but results from chronic trauma, often (but not exclusively) from childhood. It affects many Survivors of childhood trauma long into their adult lives. Survivors may have lived continuously with nightmares, sleep disturbances, hypervigilance, hyperarousal, self-harming, dissociation, self-esteem and self-concept issues and a variety of other difficulties. Others who have lived with chronic trauma in relationships of domestic violence, and other chronic trauma experiences, develop the same painful symptoms of CPTSD. This study day will focus on the effects of this for daily living and consider ways of supporting clients in their understanding and overcoming of this painful and distressing (sometimes paralysing) experience.
