2 hour Live Webinar with Jim Knipe on May 13, 2019 at 6:30 pm EDT

from 29.00

May 13th at 6:30 - 8:30 pm ET. Internal Healing Dialogue: an EMDR-related method of resolving positive attachments. This webinar is for health professionals and trainees. You can submit questions throughout the live webinar for the presenters to answer during their Q&A sessions. 

For many adult clients with complex PTSD, effective treatment involves not only uncovering and processing specific memories of traumatic events, but also identifying Dysfunctionally Stored Elements (DSEs; Gonzales and Mosquera, 2010) such as problematic patterns of relating to, and attaching to others, psychological defenses, and varying degrees of dissociative separation between different internal identities. Ross (1998) has identified a dysfunctional pattern of “attachment to the perpetrator” which which can be a consequence of maltreatment by adults who are in the caretaking role with regard to a child. This pattern is hypothesized to be a primary cause of dissociative personality structure in an adult client, and, for many clients, an obstacle to personality integration. In this webinar, a sequence of EMDR-related treatment procedures will be presented that can be very useful in treating (i.e. resolving) this problem, thereby facilitating not only resolution of posttraumatic disturbance from specific traumatic events, but also contributing to resolution of the dissociative separation between personality parts.  These procedures will first be described, and then illustrated with video examples from therapy sessions.
