"Bringing Frank Corrigan over to the U.S. has been a dream of mine ever since I first met him in Dublin over fifteen years ago. His enormous intelligence, coupled with humility and compassion, helped me integrate neurobiology into the work I was doing with clients, especially those with traumatic dissociation.
Clinicians in the UK and Ireland have turned to Frank repeatedly to integrate the most cutting-edge clinical applications, empowering them to trust themselves in supporting their clients to shift painful states.
And the new work that Frank has been developing is brilliant and practical. Its subtlety allows clinicians to shift implicit attachment patterns (arguably the most difficult patterns of all) with little or no disruption. Having had the privilege of studying and training with Frank, I knew his work would support what you are already doing.
It's an honor to bring him to the United States and share his wisdom with you. I look forward to being with you in the workshop."
~Deirdre Fay, LICSW
This training arises from Frank's work over the past forty years in integrating clinical observation with neuroscience theory. His focus has been on the brainstem: in situations of traumatic experience and attachment disruption, clinically-relevant residues can be left without conscious awareness of their origins. The natural physiological sequence in the midbrain structures is stored in implicit memory and can be accessed through attention to emotional distress in the present – especially when the events precipitating them have been experienced as shocking. New experiences of relational adversity, not just those triggering past response sequences, can also be approached in this way. Attachment shock may underlie many different ego states or be a newly traumatic experience.

"Frank Corrigan is one of the most erudite, fascinating and adventurous scientists I have had the privilege of calling my mentor, colleague and friend. His refreshingly novel approach to working with the indelible imprints of trauma takes us on a journey through the labyrinth of brain science and opens up new vistas of healing. His work restores our faith in the power of human connection and offers a beacon of hope amidst the buzz world of ‘evidence based’ practice."

"Frank Corrigan has been one of the most significant teachers of mine since I first met him over fifteen years ago. His understanding of the brain, integrated with trauma treatment and attachment theory has radically altered the way I work with clients."
~Deirdre Fay, LICSW
Frank Corrigan began his training in psychiatry in 1977 and was an NHS Consultant Psychiatrist in Scotland from 1985 until 2018, latterly working part-time as a specialist provider of trauma psychotherapy. He now works in private practice in Glasgow and specialises in complex trauma and dissociative disorders. He is an accredited practitioner and consultant with the EMDR Association (UK & Ireland), completed the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Trauma Training in 2010, and was previously approved for supervising and training in the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) for the treatment of complex trauma disorders.

"I have had the pleasure of getting to know Frank Corrigan over this past year and have been a fortunate recipient of a few sessions of the Deep Brain Reorienting process that he has developed. Frank, in my experience, is a lovely human being with a rare combination of having a big brain and warm, compassionate heart. He embodies his own work as well as shares it with other clinicians and treats patients. This embodiment, I believe, is where the development and unfolding of his work continues to evolve. I ﬁnd it a privilege that Deirdre is bringing him here and we have the opportunity to learn from him directly."
