      A 3-Day Workshop with Dolores Mosquera

      Workshop Description                            Day 1 & 2 - Treating Dissociative Disorders with EMDR: The Progressive Approach In this workshop, clinical case examples and video fragments will be used to illustrate interventions with EMDR for dissociative clients following the “Progressive Approach” (Gonzalez & Mosquera, 2012). Using this model, this workshop will demonstrate how EMDR clinicians can safely utilize a wide range of EMDR interventions from early in the preparatory phase of treatment for patients with dissociative disorders.  Our aim is to provide a comprehensive model for applying EMDR therapy in the treatment of dissociative disorders, extending the AIP model to address the kinds of dysfunctionally stored information found in those with the most severe forms of traumatization and dissociative phobias. EMDR therapists will learn to integrate new interventions into their clinical work at different phases of treatment. In particular, they will learn to implement specific clinical interventions, based on ‘progressive protocols’ for dissociative disorders. Key Content  EMDR therapy and managing dissociation, an expanded AIP model Managing dissociative phobias: identifying dissociative phobias and clinical strategies throughout different phases of treatment Empowering the client: working through the Adult Self with EMDR Therapy Understanding and exploring the internal system safely with Dissociative Disorders: clinical tools and interventions The Tip of the Finger Strategy and other tools to reprocess trauma gradually and safely Learning objectives: Participants will be able to describe three key aspects of the Progressive Approach model for dissociative clients from the EMDR perspective and the AIP model Participants will be able to identify three or more EMDR procedures for dissociative clients and link these to different phases of EMDR treatment Participants will be able to list examples of dissociative phobias and how to describe methods to work with them Participants will be able to explain three or more strategies for exploring the internal system safely in complex trauma cases Participants will learn how to explain three procedures including when, where, and how to apply procedures in your clinical practice based on the book “EMDR and Dissociation: The Progressive Approach” Participants will be able to list three or more subtle dissociative signals and explain how to adapt treatment pacing to these signals in each case Day 3 - Working with Hostile Voices and Parts of the Personality in Complex Trauma and Dissociative Disorders Many dissociative clients have difficulties with voices that are hostile and critical. The internal conflict is sometimes so strong that the person will even have difficulties carrying on with an ordinary conversation. One factor that affects this conflict is how the patient deals with the voices or parts of the self. Most approaches to helping people with hostile or critical voices have something to do with either trying to get rid of the voice, such as by taking drugs until it fades away, or trying to ignore the voice or distract attention away from it. One problem with these strategies is that they all involve avoiding issues or emotions the voice may be bringing up. A key aspect to the work with hostile parts of the personality and voices is to understand their function and the meaning behind their disruptive behaviors. A comprehensive approach is needed with the most complex cases where internal conflict can lead to harmful behaviors for the self and others. In these cases, transforming conflict through dialogue, compassion and understanding is essential. Specific procedures to work with the conflict in these clients in different phases of EMDR treatment, will be illustrated through case examples. Key Content: Identify the internal system of dissociation and internal voices that are hostile and critical How to read the function and purpose behind the saboteur parts of self. Using compassion and understanding to help deal with dissociative phobias within the internal system Skills to reduce impasses and resistance that may complicate or reduce the efficacy of the treatment Specific steps to organize the work with hostile parts and voices Learning objectives: Participants will gain skills to adapt the clinical language to the needs of clients when working with critical and hostile parts. Participants will learn skills to assist clients with understanding the motivations behind self-harming behaviours such as self-mutilation and other hostile or critical dynamics Participants will gain an understanding of how to dialogue with the unintegrated parts of Self and to reduce the internal conflict among the system of parts in different phases of EMDR Participants will be able to list three or more basic components of clinical work with hostile parts Participants will learn at least five steps to organize their work with hostile and critical parts and include it in treatment planning About the instructor:  Dolores Mosquera is a psychologist and psychotherapist, specializing in complex trauma and dissociative disorders.
