The powerful benefits of EMDR in treating PTSD have been solidly validated. In this groundbreaking new work, nine master clinicians show how complex PTSD involving dissociation and other challenging diagnoses can be treated safely and effectively. They stress the careful preparation of clients for EMDR and the inclusion of ego state therapy to target the dissociated ego states that arise in response to severe and prolonged trauma.
This book course has been developed for EMDR practitioners to help them provide successful EMDR treatment to clients diagnosed with complex trauma. Complex trauma victims have problems dealing with triggers, dissociation, affect dysregulation and stress. They require a tri-phasic trauma treatment approach integrated into the EMDR protocol: including 1: stabilization, 2: EMDR trauma processing and 3: resolution.
“Healing the Heart of Trauma and Dissociation with EMDR and Ego State Therapy” provides therapists with a comprehensive treatment approach that weaves ego state and dissociative treatment strategies into the EMDR protocol to help overcome these specific problems.
The material compiled in this book covers a range of theory—including the neurobiology of dissociation and the use of hypnosis, family systems therapy, and cognitive schemas. It also includes diagnostic categories (the spectrum of dissociative disorders and in particular dissociative identity disorder) and several client populations (couples, terror survivors). The case studies described in each chapter ground theory in practical application, illustrating the phased treatment techniques involved in preparing clients with Ego State therapy and related modalities within the EMDR protocol.
The book course provides an opportunity for EMDR trained clinicians to learn how to apply this integrative EMDR treatment in their practice while earning 8 EMDRIA CE credits.
PLEASE NOTE: This course is not a substitute for the EMDR Basic Training and does not qualify as training in EMDR.
Learning Objectives: This course will provide the practitioner with detailed information regarding EMDR. Specifically, a professional will:
• Identify skills, interventions, and modalities to teach in the stabilization phase that help clients manage symptoms of dissociation and deal successfully with problems of affect regulation.
• Describe assessment techniques for dissociative problems and types of PTSD (e.g. DID, DDNOS, complex PTSD).
• Describe the neurobiology of dissociation and how attachment problems and dysregulated physiological systems play a part in the development of dissociation.
• Identify the tri-phase trauma model of treatment and how it can be integrated into the eight-phase EMDR protocol.
• Recognize the red flags that indicate a need for a longer stabilization phase of treatment prior to EMDR trauma processing.
• Identify the ACT-AS-IF approach for preparation phase work and the ARCHITECTS process for conducting EMDR sessions for the treatment of Dissociative Identity Disorder.
• Identify the readiness criteria for moving clients from stabilization into the trauma processing phase of EMDR treatment.
• Identify maintenance of irrational beliefs and behaviors and how schema work is used to target the most accurate negative cognition.
