I’m going to be in Massachusetts on June 14 -15 teaching my ego state class. If you want to live-stream it (or show up for it) go to this website to sign up:
Here’s the program description:
Participants in Easy Ego State Interventions learn how to see clients through the lens of ego state therapy and EMDR and to distinguish healthy, flexible states from dissociative ones. Through lecture, guided experience, case examples, demonstrations, role-plays, and practice they will be able to utilize their awareness of vagal states, body types, and trauma and attachment histories to make accurate diagnoses, plan treatment, clear trauma, heal attachment issues, and enhance relationships with ego state therapy. The workshop includes content differentiating normal ego states from dissociative states; Stephen Porges’s Polyvagal theory as the basis for many states; how ego state interventions work; the Theory of Structural Dissociation; accessing functional and dysfunctional states; the 2-Hand Interweave technique; a simple trauma protocol with ego states; material on attachment to abusers and working with survivors of sexual abuse to create a healthy sex life; April Steele’s Imaginal Nurturing protocol and healing place interventions if there is a phobia of younger parts; working with relationship issues, including using adult states to pick a good partner; Calming over-active immune systems and chronic pain with EMDR and ego state work; working with personality disorders, including Borderline, and both Exhibitionist and Codependent Narcissists; and several hours on working with Dissociative Disorders including Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). The DD work includes diagnosis, working within the Theory of Structural Dissociation, many case examples, a review of useful tools, including use of the Dissociative Table, Healing Places, and “Switching” Places. It also speaks to the self-care of therapists who work with this population.
