1-Professor Andrew Moskowitz analyses the recent transformation of the medical understanding of madness. There has been sustained resistance, driven by cognitive psychology research and insights from the trauma and dissociation field, that challenges the orthodoxy of viewing psychosis as an organic malfunction. Against this view of madness as ‘incomprehensible’, comes the position that psychotic symptoms are not only meaningful but that their meaning must be understood for genuine healing to occur.
In this first lecture of Understanding Delusions and Hallucinations from a Trauma and Dissociation Perspective, Dr. Andrew Moskowitz focuses on the taxonomy of trauma. In regular parlance, its usage is quite broad; while its formal deployment in diagnoses such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is comparatively narrow. https://www.youtube.
This lecture series is partly based on the book 《Psychosis, Trauma and Dissociation》 : https://book.douban.
Andrew Moskowitz, PhD, is a clinical psychologist and current Professor of Psychology and Dean of Undergraduate Programs at Touro College, Berlin. His research has a specific focus on areas of violent and psychotic behaviour, particularly in their relation to trauma and dissociation.
2-The International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation is an international non-profit, professional association organized to develop and promote comprehensive, clinically-effective and empirically-based resources and responses to trauma and dissociation and to address its relevance to other theoretical constructs.
3-Trauma Pages focus primarily on emotional trauma and traumatic stress, including PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder) and dissociation, whether following individual traumatic experience(s) or a large-scale disaster. The purpose of this award winning site is to provide information for clinicians and researchers in the traumatic-stress field. Specifically, my interests here include both clinical and research aspects of trauma responses and their resolution. For example:
What goes on biologically in the brain during traumatic experience and its resolution?
Which psychotherapeutic procedures are most effective with traumatic symptoms, for which patients and why?
How can we best measure clinical efficacy and treatment outcome for trauma survivor populations?
