Hugo Schielke, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist with the California Department of State Hospitals and a psychotherapy researcher. Dr. Schielke specializes in the assessment and treatment of trauma-related and dissociative disorders, and his research focuses on increasing understanding of the treatment of these disorders and the relational components of psychotherapy. He completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in the assessment, differential diagnosis, and treatment of patients with complex trauma and dissociative disorders at The Trauma Disorders Program at Sheppard Pratt Health System in Baltimore, MD, and is the Co-Investigator for the Treatment of Patients with Dissociative Disorders (TOP DD) Network Study.
The TOP DD Network program offers research-informed, web-based education about the effects and symptoms of complex trauma and DD, and healthy coping skills to manage these symptoms (including distorted views of self and others, dysregulated emotion, unsafe urges, and dissociation) with a focus on the enhancement of DD patients’ safety. The TOP DD Network Study is examining the effectiveness of this program.
