Recognizing and stabilizing those with dissociative disorders using EMDR therapy

Description

Clients with dissociative disorders can present with overt, subtle or hidden dissociative pathology. Symptoms from internal conflict and hypoarousal frequently go unrecognized. In this workshop, clinicians will be exposed to a “progressive approach” where EMDR therapy procedures can be offered to those with severe dissociative disorders early in the treatment process as part of stabilization. An expanded model of dysfunctionally stored information will be offered that includes interoceptive as well as traditional exteroceptive information. Clinical case examples and video fragments will be used to illustrate subtle and hidden dissociative presentations as well as interventions with EMDR therapy for clients with complex dissociative disorders.
