Assessing and Treating Dissociation:  The Beginning Phases – live virtual  starting March 28, 2024 and April 4, 2024.

A workshop designed for therapists who are lacking a basic understanding of how to assess and work with clients who have dissociative disorders.

  1. Learn skills to assess for dissociation in clients taking into account the ACES study and a broader conceptualization of trauma
  2. Explain two theories of parts work that can inform our early therapy process
  3. Identify at least 5 preparation skills that best help with dissociative clients.
  4. Verbalize steps to orient parts to time and place as a stabilization technique
  5. Practice an IFS-informed/countertransference exercise to better understand how we can use parts work to better stay in Self.

“Therapy Snapshots”

These one-hour virtual trainings/discussions are designed for people who want to learn something new with minimal time and money commitment.  I will cover topics that I have found to be the most helpful interventions over my 30-year career.  $25 fee.  There will not be EMDRIA credit or CEUs.  Ten person limit for each meeting.

Karpman’s Triangle as a Lens for Countertransference.  What I have learned is this:  when I am stuck with a client, there is an 80% or higher chance it has nothing to do with lack of knowledge or skill.  It has to do with my PARTS!  Curious?  Join us in October.


Building Internal Scaffolding with Ideal Parent.  

Let us know if you want information about the next offering of this class.

External resources are all well and good, but people with attachment issues need internal resourcing, what I am calling “Internal Scaffolding.”  Learn more about this concept and how Ideal Parent can be used as the best scaffolding of all.

I post weekly "Ruh-minations" on Facebook and LinkedIn.  “Ruh-minations” are little nuggets about EMDR therapy, parenting, favorite resources, countertransference and insight that I have gained over the years.
