"Working with Trauma and the Body"

Trauma and PTSD have emerged as key topics within both clinical and research domains in the field of psychotherapy. This presentation is open to all clinicians and allied professionals who want to deepen their understanding in this area, as well as to be able to apply proven techniques and interventions in their practice.

Cristina Mardorossian is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified EMDR Therapist in Pasadena, California. She has provided outpatient, individual and group therapy throughout the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley to teens and adults who have struggled with the complex problems and symptoms around the areas of trauma, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and incest. 

Cristina is trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), as well as the Trauma Resiliency Module (TRM). She continues to provide individual and group psychotherapy, primarily for adult trauma survivors in the areas of sexual abuse and dissociative disorders. She conducts these Sexual Abuse Survivor Groups for both men and women.
