                 Anna Salter, PhD

    presents

     

    "Understanding the Psychology of Offenders and Victim-Perpetrator Dynamics: The Importance to Clinicians and Clinical Work with Victims"


                 Full Day Program

     

    Summary of Program Description:

    This program will focus on the importance of understanding the “footprints on the heart” of victims left by their perpetrators, and how this understanding facilitates the treatment of trauma clients. As Dr. Salter states, "clinicians who are not aware of the thinking patterns of offenders are at risk of dealing superficially with the echo of these patterns in survivors." Different types of offenders affect victims in very specific ways and it is essential to try to understand both the psychology of the perpetrators and the dynamic between the offender and his or her victim.

     

    Topics covered in this all-day session will include counter-intuitive victim behaviors, the different impacts of sadistic versus non-sadistic perpetrators and exploring explicit versus implicit denial of abuse, and understanding the dynamics of a victim’s disclosure or non-disclosure of abuse.
