    Program Description (Days 1 and 2):

    The DSM-5 establishes the criteria for the Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) diagnosis, which includes frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment, identity disturbance, impulsivity, potentially self-damaging behaviors, affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood, suicidal ideation and a history of (or risk of) suicide attempts, chronic feelings of emptiness, difficulties controlling anger and dissociative symptoms. This compound of symptoms offers a glimpse into why Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) has a reputation for being one of the most challenging disorders to treat.

    Since patients with BPD may generate strong countertransference responses from clinicians, these must be taken into consideration in working with this population. In addition, EMDR therapy may mobilize intense affect in patients. The combination of these two important factors makes it essential for clinicians to pay close attention to affect phobias –both in themselves and their BPD patients–and develop the ability to recognize these and other defensive responses that arise. Awareness of affect phobias is crucial in selecting and applying BPD treatment strategies EMDR therapy. This workshop teaches EMDR therapy intervention methods for BPD which draw from the perspective of the Adaptive Information Processing model and include careful case conceptualization and strategic treatment planning. Considerations throughout the 8 Phase Model will be discussed, including the need to be on the lookout and adjust to the emergence of potentially treatment sabotaging defensive responses

    Case examples will illuminate an array of different client difficulties and symptoms and how they may manifest in challenging clinical presentations. Methods for engaging clients collaboratively and constructively in their treatment will be discussed as well as strategies to keep client reprocessing within the window of tolerance to increase clinical effectiveness and efficiency.

    Day 1 and 2 Learning Objectives - Participants will be able to:
      • Describe the relationships between trauma, PTSD, dissociation and borderline personality disorder (BPD)
        Describe the DSM criteria from the perspective of the Adaptive Information Processing model
        Describe stabilization techniques to improve self-care in BPD
        Describe stabilization techniques to improve self-regulation in BPD and complex trauma
        Describe strategies and techniques for target selection
        Describe how to conceptualize BPD, three types of BPD and treatment differences
        Describe at least 3 frequent defenses in BPD and how to work with them
        Describe distinctive features when selecting Negative and Positive cognitions
        Describe distinctive features during VOC installation in BPD
        Identify at least 3 common difficulties and solutions in the work of BP
    Program Description (Day 3):

    Narcissism is associated with selfish behaviors and lack of empathy towards others. Patients with this diagnosis show a self-centered profile and a (sometimes only apparent) lack of concern about the suffering that they can cause in other people. But this is only part of the picture.

    The description of narcissistic personality disorder usually focuses on the “overt” qualities of narcissism (grandiosity, exploitation, arrogance, interpersonal problems and rage) while omitting the less obvious and more subtle “covert” characteristics (tendency to be shame sensitive, introverted, vulnerable, inhibited and anxiety-prone). All of these aspects may be present in both abusers and victims, in either overt or subtle presentations. This workshop we will show how to conceptualize and treat different clinical presentations characterized by self-centeredness, selfish attitudes and a lack of empathy within EMDR therapy.

    The AIP model invites an understanding of narcissism within a developmental progression from early life experiences to present problems. Narcissism features can be final outcomes of a neglecting environment, chronic abuse, unmet needs or other adverse experiences. In some cases, it is the learned outcome of excessive attention and approval. The workshop will teach assessment strategies including exploring a variety of attachment disturbances with primary caregivers which can lead to lack of empathy and self-centeredness. Being able to identify (and reprocess) the etiological experiences at the roots of the symptoms is crucial for any meaningful treatment results. Managing the complexity and challenges of the therapeutic relationship with narcissistic clients will be reviewed and effective strategies Numerous case examples will be presented illustrate case conceptualization and treatment methods.

    Day 3 Learning Objectives - Participants will be able to:
      • Identify overt and covert clinical presentations
        Identify the different types of Dysfunctional Stored Information to identify a variety of targets in this population
        Describe at least 3 defensive regulation strategies
        Describe at least 4 different problems that arise during Phases 3 to 7 of EMDR Therapy
        Describe the role of dysfunctional positive affect in clients with Narcissism
