A Vibrant Professional Community



The foundation of Family Systems Therapists Northwest is built on who we are, not what we do—it’s the therapists, not the therapy. We strive to build a personal connection with and among members, providing support for professional growth and interactive tools to strengthen the systems therapy community.

Salon“Complex Post Traumatic Stress, Dissociation & Personality Disorders”

March 27, 2020, in Bellevue, Washington.

3 Hours for LMFT, LMHC, LASW, LICSW, Certified Counselors, and associates (approval pending)

Michael Lillie, MA(ts), MA, LMFT, MHP, will discuss Complex Post Traumatic Stress (C-PTSD), also known as Developmental Trauma Disorder. C-PTSD involves individuals who have been exposed to prolonged acute and relational trauma over an extended period of time. It often involves a disrupted-disorganized attachment style, co-occurring mental health issues, and elements of dissociation than can hinder regular trauma therapy.
