Masterclass in Phase 2 for Complex and Dissociative Clients
Join us for a Masterclass in Phase 2 for Complex and Dissociative Clients. In this training Fiona and Naomi will take you through a number of practical strategies and techniques to help your complex and dissociative clients prepare for EMDR Therapy trauma memory reprocessing.
Date: 25th to the 28th November 2023
Venue: Mantra Mooloolaba, QLD
- Structural Dissociation: 2 days introduction including the opportunity to practice Frasers Table and how to work with emotional parts to ensure they are orientated to time, safe and able to work collaboratively to begin memory reprocessing.
- The following two days will have an overview of Polyvagal Theory and specific Polyvagal strategies to help your complex clients in Phase 2 – Preparation and Stabilisation. This part of the training will draw on the work of Stephen Porges, Deb Dana and Peter Levine.
- Walk away with a structured workbook to support your clients that will guide them through strategies for distress tolerance, emotional regulation and safety in expressing/experiencing emotions. This work draws on some of the work of Joany Spierings and Fiona and Naomi’s own strategies developed in over 30 combined years of trauma work.
- Learn how you can interweave Phase 2 strategies into Phase 4-7 to help your complex and dissociative clients stay present, regulated, safe and within their Window of Tolerance, so they can maintain dual attention to reprocess trauma content successfully.
