EMDR and ego states therapy for treatment of suicidal ideation and self-injury
This workshop will help clinicians develop greater understanding of suicidality and build confidence in working with suicidal clients. EMDR therapy can be successfully used to help client reprocess any material, related to suicidal ideation as well as past attempts or urges. Particular attention will be paid to the issue of increasing window of tolerance for both suicidal client and his/her clinician as an integral part of preparation phase. In addition, participants will have a clearer understanding of assessing client’s current risk, as well as readiness for EMDR Preparation and Reprocessing. Target and protocols selection will be reviewed to address a range of possible ways of working with thoughts and feelings, related to suicide.
