Interweaving Ego State Therapy within the Eight Phases of EMDR: Releasing vs Feathering the Brakes

  • Ended
  • 95 US dollars
  • Online Webinar

Service Description

One of the most challenging aspects for EMDR trained clinicians is how to use EMDR with complex cases. Such deal breakers as protective aspects of self which don’t permit access to deep conflicts, or loyalty to the aggressor, or disoriented child states all can serve to derail EMDR processing. When this happens it can deter the client from doing trauma work, and even deter clinicians from using EMDR. This workshop will help attendees understand when and how to interweave Ego State tactics and principles within the well defined eight phases of EMDR processing. A key focus will be maintaining the optimal arousal level within the window of tolerance, strengthening positive resources, and working with perpetrator introjects to reduce loyalty to the aggressor. This workshop is for those with a basic understanding of Ego State Therapy as well as basic training in EMDR Therapy. This course is approved for 3 hours of Advanced ESTNA credit towards ESTNA/ESTI certification.
