Integration of Structural Dissociation, Ego State Therapy and EMDR
Weekend Workshop Pre-Readings
I encourage you to read as many of these as you can before attending.
My Case Study – is not only a powerful tribute to the appropriate use of Ego State Therapy with EMDR therapy but it reviews some of what I will be covering on Saturday morning.
Ana and Ava Transcripts – These transcripts are moving examples of using parts work to resolve deeply held beliefs that have blocked living a full life.
Fraser Article on the Dissociative Table Technique – The weekend practicum, and the centerpiece of your learning for the weekend, is the Dissociative Table Technique, which I also refer to as the Meeting Place. George Fraser, a Canadian psychiatrist, developed it over many years. The 2003 revision of his earlier article explains the principles and the technique very well.
Meeting Place Practicum Script – This is the scripted protocol we will be utilizing during the weekend practicums. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO REVIEW THIS SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE THE WEEKEND IN ORDER TO IMPROVE YOUR EXPERIENCE DURING PRACTICUMS.
Meeting Place Office Script – This is the scripted protocol you can utilize when working with your clients.
Ann Transcripts – These are powerful examples of the first two Meeting Place (Conference Room) sessions with a female client I called “Ann.” Reading them may help you feel more comfortable using this technique.
Jane Laskey Presentation – My colleague, Jane Laskey, presented her wonderfully rich and creative uses of the Conference Room/Meeting Place at a Western Mass EMDRIA Network Annual Meeting in 2013. It really “covers the bases” and I encourage you to read it now and study it later. She concludes with her work with a client rooted in the Conference Room Technique.
