Treating dissociation in the spectrum of personality disorders: Integrating EMDR and ego state treatment

Description

The integration of EMDR with Ego State therapy will be presented as a comprehensive approach to the treatment of the wide spectrum of personality disorders. New evidence from the fields of neuroscience, regarding the normative multiplicity of the self, will be defined and described. Historically, the treatment of personality disorders has been described as difficult, if not impossible; manifested by a rigid, character-armor, defensive resistance. This presentation will propose that the presence of untreated dissociation accounts for these failures and will highlight the use of ego-state mapping, exploration, interweaves and the utilization of ego-state-specific EMDR targeting to facilitate robust processing.
