Easy Ego State Interventions (with or w/o EMDR)

Presenter: Robin Shapiro, LICSW 

Details: Robin Shapiro has used ego state therapy for more than 36 years. She is the editor of EMDR Solutions: Pathways to Healing; EMDR Solutions II; The Trauma Treatment Handbook; and Easy Ego State Interventions. She does psychotherapy in Seattle, gives consultation to clinicians in 4 countries, speaks often at conferences and workshops, and is working on her new book, How to Do Psychotherapy. Her trainings are accessible, transformational, and highly usable.

  • An Introduction to Ego States: Functional Roles and Developmental States, Trauma/Broken-Attachment Based States, Dissociative States, and the States that Live in Clients and in You.
  • Using Ego State Therapy with Attachment Issues, Relationships, Sexual Issues, Performance Enhancement, Trauma Recovery, and Working with Dissociative States. Including interventions for calming immune systems, transforming shame, increasing resourcing, and healing personality disorders.
  • Includes practice, case examples, and case consultation.
  • Many participants have personal transformation during the practice. Most are using the material as soon as they get back to work.
  • Feedback from one person: “It was full to the brim, well-structured and lots of practices and demonstrations. Everyone loved it. I learned tons and would recommend her wholeheartedly. And I now know myself very differently!”

(If you don’t know EMDR, you can still do Ego State Therapy with your clients. If you do EMDR, I’ll be telling when to throw in the whole protocol, how to use the safe parts, and when, and with whom, to skip EMDR processing, completely.)
