Master Class | It’s All Parts Work:Healing Complex Trauma & Dissociation | Beginning February 2021!

This 7 month course is designed to help you deepen your skills so you can treat Complex PTSD and Structural Dissociation with confidence. We will meet via Zoom, twice/month for 7 months. Space is limited. Please note: Some knowledge of treating trauma, EMDR, and Internal Family Systems are all preferred, though not strictly required. Email me with a brief summary of your training experience if you are interested in this course.

We will read and discuss the most important books in the field of trauma-informed care; study assessment along the dissociative spectrum, learn affectively-attuned psychoeducation, stabilization methods, attachment repair, and trauma resolution. You must sign up for the whole series, and commit to digging in and practicing these skills!

Why this course? Over the years, I have realized my consultation groups are not enough immersion for many people to go from a basic knowledge of, to the practice of trauma-informed, phase-oriented treatment. This program is designed to bridge the gap between a cerebral understanding of trauma-informed therapy and getting this material in your body. It will include lecture, demonstrations, and practice with colleagues.

Curriculum: You will learn a comprehensive curriculum infused with an awareness of Self and therapist parts: assessment, stabilization, attachment repair, and trauma processing, as well as some focus on shaping one’s ideal private practice (with or without a consulting component). Structural Dissociation, IFS, EMDR, Flash Technique, along with a taste of several other parts theories will be utilized.

Between Sessions: Group members read (or re-read) The Body Keeps the Score, Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors, My Grandmother’s Hands, as well as other resources along the way. Also between meetings, members will meet with other members by phone or video, to do consultations on each other’s challenging cases, and to practice techniques presented in the course as both client and therapist.

Schedule: Alternate Wednesdays 10-12 noon PST, beginning February 10, 2021, ends early August 2021.

Cost: $95 for each two-hour meeting (payable the week we meet)

EMDRIA Approved Consultant Training: Interested?

If you are an EMDRIA Certified Therapist who wants to take your skills and credentials to the next level, this may be the next right step for you. You must be trauma-informed, and have studied and learned parts work.

Typically, groups will meet for 60 minutes, every other week, via Zoom.us, for a total of 20 sessions.

Group time: As per EMDRIA guidelines, by the end of our 20 weeks, you will have consulted with 5 different clinicians. During the group, I have you consult on each other’s cases. If you get stuck, I step in. It’s a chance to own what you know. At the beginning, I can collaborate with you. Besides the clinical focus, I also offer support and encouragement to begin your own consulting practice, both individual and group. Some of the group will be devoted to this. You can also present cases on which you have been consulting, to talk about the clinical content as well as any relational dynamics that are relevant.

You can also ask any questions, clinical or other, anytime!
Fees: Fees vary, depending on class size: 4 members $50, 3 members $65. We have room for up to four qualified therapists.
Preparation: Now is the time to read the EMDRIA guidelines, to see if you qualify!
Also, even though Zoom is the most reliable platform for video conferencing, now is the time to make sure your internet is as fast as possible. It is frustrating to have interruptions in communication. Also, transmission is helped by closing all the programs you are not using during our conference call.
You will need to complete an online CIT Declaration form before we start. Also, you must study and comply with the guidelines here: https://www.emdria.org/page/51
