3 Clinical credits

Workshop participants will be guided through the MSSDT experience

Participants are asked to have basic art materials on hand (drawing paper, markers, pencils, etc.) as this will be an experiential workshop.

This webinar discusses Dr. Susan C. Parente's recent publication, The Multiple Self-States Drawing Technique: Creative Assessment and Treatment with Children and Adolescents (Routledge, 2019). Psychologically overwhelming and traumatic experiences lay the groundwork for dissociated, disowned or disavowed self-state processes – rendering individuals as experiencing “me” and “not me” states. The MSSDT is a contemporaneous version of a projective figure drawing activity providing a novel opportunity to bridge the gap in youngsters’ awareness of discrete emotional states.

Emotionally dysregulated, trauma-based, and dissociative self-states are discovered and compassionately explored, while focusing on adaptive, resilient states of well-being is encouraged and promoted. The experiential, psycho-educational tool can foster a beneficial relational encounter, therapeutic self-expression, and promote a mentalizing stance. Treatment strategies may emerge from expressed material. The MSSDT, an arts-based, creative, trans-diagnostic, clinical assessment tool may be advantageous for practitioners endorsing diverse therapeutic orientations, modalities, and integrative approaches. Workshop participants will be guided through the MSSDT experience.

Learning Objectives:
•  Review the principles of affect regulation as related to clinical practice
•  Understand the neurobiological model of trauma and multiple self-states
•  Learn how to the use of the MSSDT as a tool and technique for clinical assessment and treatment of child and adolescent psychotherapy patients.
