Treating Complex Trauma with EMDR Therapy and Structural Dissociation Theory: Effectively Treating "Parts"
Presented by Kathleen Martin, LCSW
This 3-part Webinar series will progressively teach the intricacies of integrating Structural Dissociation Theory into the treatment of people with complex trauma. Specific strategies and practical skills will be taught to safely and effectively treat complex trauma and trauma-related developmental disorders. Fraser's Dissociative Table Technique will be taught and demonstrated along with ways to integrate this powerful tool throughout the entire treatment. The art of time orientation will be demonstrated, giving clinicians many valuable tools and skills to eliminate the reliving that causes so much destabilization. Dissociative Cognitive errors will be addressed as well as how to work with self-persecutory protector parts. The expanded Readiness Checklist for reprocessing traumatic material in cases of complex trauma will be taught as well as ways to safely titrate reprocessing. Case transcripts and video segments will be used throughout the series to demonstrate skillful ways to treat "parts".
