Event description
Workshop with Dr Dan Brown on the 'Assessment and Treatment of Conversion Disorders, Somatic Symptom Disorders, and Factitious Disorders'

About this Event

Assessment and Treatment of Conversion Disorders, Somatic Symptom Disorders, and Factitious Disorders

Daniel P. Brown, Ph.D.

Harvard Medical School

This workshop is on the assessment and integrative treatment of the full range of conversion disorders (CD), somatic symptom disorders (SSD), and factitious disorders (FD).

The course will address: defining, assessing, and diagnosing conversion disorders, through of the use of state-of-the-art assessment tools and identification of the functional neurocircuitry of CDs. We will assess the relative contributions of both the role of neurotic and traumatic conflict, and somatic and learned neurocircuitry learning in the development of conversion symptoms, as both perspectives are necessary in a comprehensive, integrative treatment model.

Assessment and treatment of the full range of CDs will specifically include: psychogenic non-epileptic seizures, psychogenic movement disorders, psychogenic disorders of stance and gait, functional sensory disturbances like vocal cord dyskinesia, focal blindness, non-organic hearing loss, unexplained sensory loss, conversion pain, and complex conversion symptoms. Assessment and treatment will also address somatic symptoms disorders, and factitious disorders.

The primary emphasis will be on step-by-step treatment protocols using psychodynamic,-exploratory & somatic information-processing approaches to treatment.

Teaching by lecture, demonstration of methods, and case illustration.

Light meals will be provided.
