Ego State Therapy in Trauma: For EMDR and Non-EMDR Therapists

Robin Shapiro, LICSW
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Friday, October 13, and Saturday, October 14, 2017
Multi-Faith Centre/Koffler House (569 Spadina Avenue, Toronto)

Bessel van der Kolk calls EMDR as the “most effective treatment available for adult trauma survivors.” Ego State Therapy is often used in tandem with EMDR and is a simple, effective and versatile therapeutic tool that can be used alone or combined with other therapies

Ego states are bundles of neural connections that hold consistent patterns of information, affect, attention, behavior, and sometimes, identity, which belong to different developmental ages or situations. Ego State Therapy allows therapists to assist clients to identify, heal, retrain, and integrate these states into a cohesive, functional whole that is oriented to the present.

This workshop offers a practical overview of understanding ego state therapy for dissociative and non-dissociative clients. Robin Shapiro brings her practical, often entertaining, approach to invaluable concepts and methods. You will learn a working model of ego states and concrete step-by-step remedies for every-day relationship issues, personality disorders, and complex trauma and dissociation. Through the ego state lens, you will learn how to access positive states and keep the parts oriented to the present; how to contain and heal distressed and destructive parts; and how to work with suicidal parts and how deal with personality-disordered clients.

All therapists, whether they know EMDR or not, will learn tools for beefing up clients’ internal resources, finding their “oldest-wisest adult selves.”

You will learn —

• How to bring forth clients’ most functional selves
• How to help affect-phobic clients notice, name, and tolerate their emotions
• Techniques to address attachment deficits and disorders
• How to help sexual abuse survivors connect to and fulfill healthy adult sexuality
• How to diagnose and work with Borderline and Narcissistic Personality clients
• How to recognize and treat highly dissociative clients
• How to name and work with your own unique ego states
