Social acceptance and inclusion are fundamental human needs, yet many people feel they don’t fit in or otherwise struggle in groups, or amid threatening societal dynamics. These difficulties are often overlooked clinical issues that are central or co-morbid problems. Past and ongoing socially adverse experiences including developmental social trauma, stigmatization, discrimination and marginalization and can lead to isolation, invisibility, alienation and unsatisfying lives. This workshop will explore concepts including social information processing, ingroup/outgroup effects, social identity formation, internalized social messages, the impact of “isms” and a range of cultural factors. Clinical methods outlined for a trauma informed treatment approach will integrate best practices in cultural competence and include a topic-related description of useful EMDR therapy strategies.
