If you choose the livestream/delayed viewing option (all one option), you will receive instructional details at least one week before the conference. They will include instructions re: accessing the program and access to tech support. The pre-recorded program will be available three hours after the live version. You will have the ability to view all or parts of the training live as well as prerecorded until March 9, 2019 (with a modestly priced extension available after that).
GROUP DISCOUNT RATE (for delayed viewing, only)
: This rate has been designed so that local colleagues can co-register at reduced rates. The intention is to not only reduce costs but increase collaborative discussion among colleagues about the content of the training and therefore increase learning. Please understand that it is unethical for non-paying clinicians to participate in the livestream/delayed viewing option.
The rates are as follow:
REGISTER BELOW (scroll down or click "Show/Hide Details" above)
4 or more clinicians: $30 off per person per day
Once a group has been formed, the group organizer (captain) should register and, in the box below, indicate others in the group. Then those other group members can register using the group rate at checkout
After many early cautions about the potential dangers of using EMDR with individuals suffering from dissociative disorders, limited methods have been offered for adapting standard EMDR procedures to this specific population. Based on these early cautions, EMDR is still considered by many clinicians as limited to the treatment of traumatic memories in high functioning dissociative clients and only after a long preparation phase that depends on other treatment modalities. Confined by this conceptualization, the use of EMDR is too often limited and many survivors of severe traumatization are unable to benefit from EMDR reprocessing and, if at all, only much later in the treatment process.
Dolores Mosquera has developed (with Isabel Gonzalez, M.D.) and will present the Progressive Approach
model for treating complex trauma and dissociation. Using this AIP informed model, clinicians can safely utilize a wide range of EMDR interventions (including BLS) from early in the preparatory phase of treatment for patients with dissociative disorders. Mosquera’s deft clinical skills and ground breaking innovative thinking teaches a middle ground between “dissociation blind” aggressive EMDR interventions and overly cautious delays to the use of EMDR reprocessing.
ON DAY 1 (Treating Dissociative Disorders with EMDR: The Progressive Approach)
, clinical case examples will be used to illustrate interventions with EMDR for dissociative clients following The Progressive Approach
(Gonzalez & Mosquera, 2012). This workshop will demonstrate how EMDR clinicians can safely utilize a wide range of EMDR interventions from early in the preparatory phase of treatment for patients with dissociative disorders.
Key Program Content for Day 1:
Day 1 Learning Objectives - Participants will be able to:
EMDR and dissociation: an extended AIP model
Dissociative phobias: the maintenance of dissociation. How to identify dissociative phobias and work with them in different phases
Empowering the client: working through the Adult Self with EMDR Therapy
How to explore the internal system safely in Dissociative Disorders: adaptations and tools
The Tip of the Finger Strategy and other tools to process trauma gradually and safely
DAY 2 (EMDR Therapy for Suicidal clients and Self-harming behaviors)
Describe three key aspects of the Progressive Approach model for dissociative clients from the EMDR perspective and the AIP model
Identify three or more EMDR procedures for dissociative clients and link these to different phases of EMDR treatment
List examples of dissociative phobias and how to describe methods to work with them
Explain three or more strategies for exploring the internal system safely in complex trauma cases
Explain three procedures including when, where and how to apply these procedures in their clinical practice ( with aid of the book, EMDR and Dissociation: the Progressive Approach, if needed)
Describe three or more subtle dissociative signals and explain how to adapt treatment pacing to these signals in each case
will build on the concepts of Day 1. In this workshop we will explore the different stages of suicidal ideation and how to work with them. The assessment of vital risk is a priority in a patient with these behaviors. We will also address self-harm behaviors and emotional regulation from the perspective of EMDR.
Key Program Content for Day 2:
Day 2 Learning Objectives - Participants will be able to:
This workshop integrates the management of suicide ideation, self-harming behaviors and emotional dysregulation with the AIP model
How to conceptualize different self-harming behaviors and suicide from the AIP model
How to organize EMDR the treatment plan of suicidal ideation and self-harm
Specific interventions for self-harm and suicidal ideation
Skills to improve emotional regulation and coping strategies
DAY 3 (Working with hostile voices and parts of the personality in complex trauma and dissociative disorders)
Describe the different stages of suicide ideation and how to work with them
Understand self-harm and suicide from the AIP perspective
Identify specific structured EMDR interventions intended to improve clients’ capacities for basic self-care and emotional self-regulation
Name at least 3 different examples of relevant targets in the work with suicidal clients
Recognize and select appropriate responses for coping with suicide and self-harming behaviors
Recognize and resolve challenging clinical situations that frequently arise in treating clients with repeated suicide attempts and self-harming behaviors
: Many dissociative clients have difficulties with voices that are hostile and critical. The internal conflict is sometimes so strong that the person will even have difficulties carrying on with an ordinary conversation. One factor that affects this conflict is how the patient deals with the voices or parts of the self.
Key Program Content for Day 3:
Day 3 Learning Objectives - Participants will learn to:
Identify the internal system of dissociation and internal voices that are hostile and critical
How to read the function and purpose behind the saboteur parts of self
Using compassion and understanding to help deal with dissociative phobias within the internal system
Skills to reduce impasses and resistance that may complicate or reduce the efficacy of the treatment
Specific steps to organize the work with hostile parts and voices
Implement an approach to clinical work with hostile voices
Use skills to adapt the clinical language to the needs of clients and considerations when working with critical and hostile parts
Assist clients with understanding the motivations behind self-harming behaviors such as self-mutilation and other hostile or critical dynamics
Dialogue with the unintegrated parts of Self and to reduce the internal conflict among the system of parts
Identify basic components of clinical work with hostile parts
Identify multiple steps to organize clinical work with hostile and critical parts
