What Happens when EMDR Meets Complex Trauma

Course Description:

Why is dissociation relevant to our work as EMDR therapists, and how do we address it?

This 2-hour presentation provides a road-map for understanding and assessing clinically significant dissociation within an EMDR context. Participants will learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of dissociation, and be able to describe it’s origins and function. An introduction to effective interventions and treatment planning will also be provided, together with resources and referrals for further study.

At the Crossroads of Trauma Therapy

Under certain circumstances, EMDR, ‘Parts’ Models, and Attachment interventions work better in collaboration than they do alone. In this training you will learn what these circumstances are, and how to combine theories and interventions to maximum effect and efficiency. This training will grow your ability to understand and assess dissociation, as well as provide interventions for moving your most complex cases towards readiness for trauma processing. The curriculum is designed for those who have completed EMDR Part I & Part II course work. We will review and move beyond EMDR to focus on the ways in which many trauma- informed therapies overlap, inform/support one another, and illuminate the bigger picture. Here is a video overview of the workshop:
