Using the Draw-A-Person test to introduce EMDR protocols with personality disorders

Description

Participants will be able to: 1) identify character traits from person drawings using a two-page handout; 2) identify three basic clusters in which dysfunctional personality traits fall; and 3) describe and demonstrate how to use drawing interpretations to reduce client resistance to owning certain character traits through the use of "therapeutic triangle;" 4) identify NCs and PCs for each DSM IV personality disorder and relate them to character traits expressed in drawings; and 5) demonstrate the setup of the EMDR protocol from character traits identified in drawings and related NCs through role-play in triads.
