Healing the Heart of Trauma & Dissociation with EMDR and Ego State Therapy

Presenter: Carol Forgash, CSW, BCD

EMDRIA trained clinicians who have completed the EMDRIA Basic training may take this course.

This workshop will present a Cross Training model: the cutting edge integration of EMDR , trauma informed phase oriented therapy, and ego state therapy in the treatment of highly traumatized clients. A major focus will be the exploration and negotiation of the extensive preparation phase that is often required to safely build up stabilization, affect and dissociative symptom management skills, and the therapeutic relationship, prior to the actual trauma processing and desensitization phase of EMDR treatment.

Participants will be taught how to weave these methods into EMDR treatment to help complex trauma clients develop appropriate internal and external boundaries and acquire skills to promote affect regulation. Having established these prerequisites, participants then will discover how to use this cross-training model for successful EMDR reprocessing.

Carol Forgash is in full-time clinical and consulting practice in Smithtown, New York. She provides treatment utilizing EMDR and Ego State Therapy for complex PTSD, general psychotherapy, health issues, couple’s work, and performance issues. She is an internationally known lecturer and consultant on the integration of EMDR and Ego State work and psychodynamic treatment, the treatment of complex PTSD, and the health issues of sexual abuse survivors. Carol has presented at EMDRIA and ISSD conferences and was a Keynote Speaker at EMDR Europe 2002 and 2003. She has contributed several chapters on EMDR work with complex trauma and dissociation to EMDR Scripted Protocols: Special Populations, Editor Marilyn Luber.(Springer, 2009). Carol is the co-author, co-editor of Healing the Heart of Trauma and Dissociation with EMDR and Ego State Therapy (Springer, 2007).
