Upcoming Webinars (by Farnsworth)

2021-2022 Events

An Introduction to the Integration of Structural Dissociation, Ego State Therapy and EMDR Therapy

Presented by Farnsworth Lobenstine, LICSW;

with Paula Marucci, LCSW; Reginald Harris, LMFT; and Shannon Strader, LPC; 

Live Online Webinar via Zoom on  September 9th – 11th, 2022,

7:00 – 9:00 pm Friday, 10:30 am – 6:45 pm EST. Saturday and Sunday

This weekend webinar will give participants who have already completed the EMDR basic training the critical skills needed for working with clients who have Complex Trauma and/or Dissociative Disorders. Participants will learn about and practice developing their own Meeting Place/Conference Room, the most widely used technique for working with ego states and parts of self to resolve internal conflicts. We have added two evening hours on Friday for a more spacious approach to this work. On Saturday and Sunday, there will be a morning didactic segment followed by a break for lunch, after which there will be a demonstration of the Meeting Place with a participant volunteer. Supervised practicums in triads will be conducted both afternoons. The afternoon ends with some time for consultation. These complex clients can be treated successfully using modifications of the EMDR Protocol but without deviation in Phases 3-6.

The Neuroscience of Trauma and Dissociative Disorders:

An insider’s perspective on healing

Presented by Heather Leach, LPC

Live Online Webinar Date TBD

Understanding the neurological mechanisms of trauma and dissociation, as opposed to healthy development, enable us to work much more effectively with our Complex Trauma clients. This straightforward and practical webinar will teach you how to understand your clients’ brains and open up more efficient and effective ways to work with your clients. Demonstrations of EMDR Therapy incorporating Ego State Therapy, and of the Meeting Place are the centerpiece of the afternoon.
