Overview

 

There is currently consensus that the EMDR standard protocol needs modification for clients diagnosed with a combination of personality and complex trauma related disorders, the consequence of a history of chronic abuse and failure of attachment. This two-day workshop is designed to help experienced clinicians apply appropriate EMDR therapy adaptations when working with these clients because of the strong potential for  destabilization. Participants will be taught  the dissociative nature of these disorders and how to treat them within the framework of EMDR. They will gain a solid understanding of the structure of the dissociative personality:  the dissociative parts, their strengths deficits and their interrelationships. 

Participants  will be taught the essential preparatory work needed before integrating and reprocessing traumatic memories using the framework of phase-oriented treatment and the theory of structural dissociation of the personality.  Phase-oriented treatment has its origins in the pioneering work of Pierre Janet ‘s  psychology of action and advanced by psychologists Onno van der Hart, Ph.D. and Ellert Nijenhuis, Ph.D. There are three phases in treatment: (1) stabilization and symptom reduction; (2) treatment of traumatic memories; and (3) personality (re)integration and rehabilitation.  Its application takes the form of a spiral, in which the different treatment phases can be alternated according to the needs of the client with the overall treatment goal to help clients gradually strengthen the personality structure allowing for the system to operate optimally.

 

Within this context, the workshop will address dealing with blocked EMDR processing, use of cognitive interweaves, time orientation of parts, and “dissociative table” to facilitate co-consciousness and titrate emotional intensity.

 

There will be ample time for discussion. Videos of client sessions that will illustrate teaching points will be shown. (Warning: videos have strong emotional content typical of clients with complex trauma). Dr. Solomon’s three publications on utilization of EMDR therapy with complex trauma, written with an international team headed by Onno van der Hart, Ph.D. and Ellert R. S. Nijenhuis Ph.D., will be emailed to participants prior to the workshop.
