EMDR phase 2 of work in eating disorders: Identiying and working with the inner world
One of the most difficult questions for clinicians to answer when working with EDs is how to begin treatment once they get to phase 2. In many cases, the therapist may get confused with which direction to take when reaching this point in treatment. Normally, people who suffer from these disorders present too many symptoms and complaints, so it will be necessary to have guidelines that can help us conceptualize. EMDR therapy answers this question through the EDs protocol, which helps stabilize, organize and structure the patient’s inner world. This workshop will provide clinicians with protocol-based guidelines to organize the treatment in phase 2. These guidelines include identifying and working with the most conflictive parts in the inner world, learning the language of EDs, neutralizing the blocking defenses, and using the best resources in order to bring up the memory with which to start the standard protocol in phase 3.
