Working with Complex Clients and Dissociation – with Maeve Crowley, Bedford, Saturday 27 January 2018

EMDR Beds, Bucks and Herts is delighted to welcome Maeve Crowley to lead their inaugural training event.

Maeve is an EMDR Consultant and Facilitator and a Past President of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland, and will share her extensive knowledge and experience of working with complex clients in whom dissociation is a prominent feature.

She will introduce various theories of dissociation and how they relate to the Adaptive Information Processing model (AIP) and  will explain how EMDR can be used effectively with complex dissociative clients.

This workshop is relevant to clinicians working with adults or children.

By the end of the workshop you will:

  • Recognise the three phase model of trauma therapy and know how this integrates with the eight phases of the standard EMDR protocol
  • Know which resources to use and when
  • Know how to target the typical phobias associated with dissociative disorders
  • Be able to recognise and work with dissociative parts
  • Be able to recognise and work with blocks to processing
  • Know how to manage yourself in this work
As working with dissociative clients requires a good knowledge of the standard protocol, this workshop is only open to participants who have completed Parts 1, 2 and 3 of EMDR Basic Training.
