Deconstructing dissociative identity disorder to guide EMDR treatment
EMDR is known to dissolve dissociative barriers in those who have dissociative identity disorder. This occurrence can make EMDR more hazardous for clients with DID than for those in other diagnostic categories. In this program, participants will gain enthusiasm about learning more about dissociative disorders and the use of EMDR. They will learn how to distinguish the concept of self-state from ego-state and be able use this distinction in their treatment planning. Participants will recognize characteristics of dissociative structure that will lead toward or away from the use of EMDR at a particular phase of therapy.
