This workshop is a practical overview of understanding ego state therapy for dissociative and non-dissociative clients. Participants will get a working model of ego states; how to bring resourced “oldest, wisest” parts to the front and access other positive states; how to heal simple trauma and complex trauma (including sexual trauma), deal with relationship issues (including finding a good relationship), contain and heal distressed and destructive parts in “high-tech” safe places, keep all parts oriented to the present, work with suicidal parts, and deal with personality-disordered clients. The workshop includes lecture and practice. Participants should be able to use ego state therapy with their clients upon completing this workshop. EMDR practitioners will learn how to integrate ego state techniques into their practice. People do not have to have EMDR to utilize 95% of this workshop.
