The Sleeping Dogs method
By Arianne Struik

The treatment of severely traumatized children and adolescents usually focuses on helping the child and the family to process their traumatic experiences. But in some cases the usual treatment doesn’t apply. These children may for example refuse to talk about the trauma. They may dissociate, or may say they have forgotten about it. There are times when we don’t dare to talk about the trauma with the child because we are afraid of re-traumatizing the child. Or a child becomes very aggressive or dissociates when the trauma is mentioned. And some children are very young and can’t speak about what happened or we don’t know exactly what happened. Cases such as these get stuck and often the trauma doesn’t get processed. We let ‘sleeping dogs lie’, with devastating consequences for future development. But how to help these children?
This one-day workshop focuses on how to get these ‘stuck’ cases going. It will outline the Sleeping Dogs method for stabilizing these children and planning resolutions and interventions for severely traumatized children, adolescents and their families, so they can start processing traumatic memories. This is a practical workshop in which Arianne will ground the method in case examples. Participants will need to practise the use of this method with their own cases. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to plan and execute the stabilization phase for these children in order to prepare them for trauma processing. The theory will be explained in straightforward language; the same language that participants can use with their clients
