EMDR Therapy & Dissociation

Friday, November 27

1:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Room: Ballroom 2


Mary Sutton

EMDR therapy is a very efficient healing tool that requires knowledge and understanding when used with clients who dissociate. The greater the degree of dissociation, the greater the understanding and caution required by the practitioner.

While dissociation removes pain from conscious awareness, EMDR therapy used without sufficient knowledge can unexpectedly associate painful material. An understanding of primary, secondary and tertiary dissociation together with knowledge of unexpected responses can prevent a practitioner from feeling de-skilled. Even worse, mistakes can add to the distress of the client.

Mary will address the use of EMDR therapy with the three levels of dissociation. This presentation is designed to make you think as it presents cases for your consideration. Thank you to the amazing people who have permitted her to use their cases to both educate and inform. In all cases the identification of these clients has been carefully concealed.
