July 20-21, 2019
Iselin, NJ

In this workshop, Israeli psychologist Brurit Laub, co-developer of the Recent Traumatic Episodes Protocol (R-TEP), brings expanded theoretical and practical applications of the dialectical perspective to psychotherapy in general and EMDR in particular. Dialectics refers to the innate movement of opposites (such as: control- lack of control, dependent- independent, worth- worthless) toward synthesis and higher integration. Dialectical concepts are as old as Yin and Yang and have played a role in a variety of psychotherapy approaches. In the late 1980’s the application of the dialectical method which included mindfulness, emotional regulation and distress tolerance was brought to the CBT community and named dialectical behavior therapy or DBT.

In EMDR theory, the adaptive information processing (AIP) system is the innate process; and Brurit hypothesizes that EMDR processing moves as a spiral between opposites, oscillating up and down, aiming toward greater integration. She suggests that a dialectical perspective allows the therapist to understand the principles of the expanding associative processing that clients experience in an EMDR session. A higher expansion is reflected in the transformation of the self and a growing sense of wholeness. Dialectical understanding provides therapists a means of constructing interventions and interweaves that facilitate integrative resolution. 

The workshop will emphasize how to develop a compassionate, dialectical relationship between the adult self (or other positive figures) and the vulnerable child. A variety of therapeutic approaches including EMDR, use inner child work to repair attachment wounds. Brurit will teach her dialectical procedure named Healing Space in which the therapist is modeling to the client’s adult self how to approach the vulnerable child with compassion. If protective parts come up the therapist helps the client to engage in a dialogue with them, thus reducing their concerns. These parts are reminded that the client today is mature and can contain emotional pain, assisted by the therapist. The more the client will learn to accept the child’s vulnerability the more opposites will be accepted and a sense of wholeness will develop. This is often accompanied by a spontaneous emergence of the client’s authentic essence, or core of the self. Participants will learn to identify and validate the essence and make it accessible so that the client may easily connect to it. The compassionate relationship with the vulnerable child is consolidated and internalized by repeating the Healing Space during therapy, and by daily brief encounters with the child at home. This procedure can be used throughout all phases of EMDR Therapy. It will gradually become an effective tool for vulnerable situations replacing defensive reactions.
