What is this webinar about? 
This webinar was recorded on August 25, 2018. In the first half of the webinar, Dr. Miller will present a methodology for assessing & understanding psychosis in a trauma-sensitive formulation, and the application of EMDR therapy and associated psychotherapies to the treatment of psychosis. Four of Dr. Miller’s ICoNN categories will be described, that allow the experienced EMDR clinician to utilize both the standard 8-phase/3-pronged protocol and modified protocols to effect clinical improvement. ICoNN means the Cognitions of Negative Networks. Clinical examples, including some from Dr. Miller’s recent book, EMDR Therapy for Schizophrenia and Other Psychoses, will be included and unpacked in a meaningful stepwise manner. Clinically, encouraging outcomes have been observed and those who respond positively can achieve long-term symptom control without the need for medication.

In the second half of this webinar, Dr. Ross will explain his model of a dissociative subtype of schizophrenia. He will discuss the relationships between trauma, dissociation and psychosis. According to Dr. Ross’ model, dissociative identity disorder (DID) and schizophrenia can be conceptualized as occurring on a spectrum. The spectrum goes: non-dissociative schizophrenia – dissociative schizophrenia – schizodissociative disorder – DID. As one moves right on the spectrum, one finds: more psychological trauma; more psychophysiology of trauma; more comorbidity; more structured auditory hallucinations; more voices that can be engaged in therapy; more response to psychotherapy; and less response to antipsychotic medications. Dr. Ross will discuss the idea that treatment strategies from the DID literature can be useful in the treatment of a subgroup of people who meet DSM-5 criteria for schizophrenia. He will provide an overview of some of these strategies.

Objectives: By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1.             Describe the relationships between trauma, dissociation and psychosis.

2.             Describe clinical implications of the relationships between trauma, dissociation and psychosis.

3.             Describe a method for trauma-informed assessment of psychosis.

4.             Describe treatment strategies for psychosis within a trauma-informed approach that draws on   EMDR, ego-state therapy and other approaches.
