Treating complex PTSD using EMDR
Sandi’s workshop will provide a framework for treating complex PTSD using EMDR. It will first review the relevant characteristics of complex PTSD and then use this information to demonstrate EMDR case conceptualization and ways in which adaptive learning can be encouraged during the processing following adaptive linkage being made with dysfunctional memory storage. The workshop will also describe how to recognise dissociation during the EMDR phases and how to manage dissociation so that EMDR can proceed to the usual adaptive resolution of traumatic memories and ultimately, resolution of the individual’s complex PTSD. The workshop will be illustrated with case material.
