Course Description:
This two-day workshop is a practical training in the integration of "parts" or ego state work with EMDR practice. It has evolved from Andrew Seubert’s work as an EMDR consultant and trainer, during which Andrew realized the crucial need for ego state competence when working with trauma and dissociation (this workshop will NOT address extreme forms of dissociation, viz., DID).

This will be a hands-on workshop, the purpose of which is for participants to leave with the competence and confidence to utilize ego state work within a trauma-informed approach. This applies to both those new to the use of parts work, as well as those wishing to hone their existing skills.

Day One covers the essential skills in working with “parts” or ego states. These skills include, but are not limited to, recognition of and contact with parts, developing a collaborative relationship with parts, and creating resources when needed. Day Two focuses on three problematic “scenarios” encountered in parts work, how to recognize them and what strategies are required. These are (1) internal blame among parts, (2) negative introjects and (3) attachment repair with parts. Learning takes place through lecture, live demonstration, video clips and practice. The workshop includes practica, which provide the opportunity to experience the collaboration of EMDR and an ego state approach.
