About this event

Participants learn how to see clients through the lens of ego state therapy and EMDR and to distinguish healthy, flexible states from dissociative ones. They learn to clear trauma, work with couples, work with sexual issues with abuse survivors, address shame, pain, personality disorders, and dissociative identity disorder through lecture, practice, and case examples.

  • Appropriate for both EMDR and non-EMDR practitioners
  • Learn how to work with Ego States
  • The Different States: Developmental, Trauma/Broken-Attachment Based, and Dissociation
  • Using Ego State Therapy with Attachment Issues, Relationships, Sexual Issues
  • Performance Enhancement, Trauma Recovery, and Working with Dissociative States.
  • Interventions for calming immune systems, transforming shame, increasing resourcing, and healing personality disorders.
  • Practice sessions, case examples, and real time case consultation.

Robin Shapiro is a practical, clear, and entertaining speaker, who is responsive to questions and the needs of the participants. She often has participants role-play especially difficult clients, in order to show methods of dealing with dissociative defenses in therapy sessions.

Many participants experience personal transformation during the practice sessions. Most are using the material as soon as they get back to work. From one participant: “It was full to the brim, well-structured and lots of demonstrations. I learned tons and would recommend her wholeheartedly. And I now know myself very differently!”

12 CEUs available for Florida Chapter 491 (LMHC, LMFT, LCSW).

12 EMDRIA Credits are available for those who have completed an EMDRIA-approved Basic EMDR training.
