Using EMDR with dissociative clients: The CIPOS method
During this keynote the so called CIPOS procedure will be fully explained which is helpful with clients who are vulnerable to dissociative abreaction (e.g. DID, DDNOS). This involves first a method for measuring degree of dissociation during a session (the so-called Back-of-the-Head Scale) and then a method for maintaining present orientation during trauma processing (the method of Constant Installation of Present Orientation and Safety)
