Mastering the Treatment of Complex Trauma: Transforming Theory into Practice
June 4-5th, 2015

This two-day workshop will teach Structural Dissociation Theory and how it integrates into specific strategies and practical skills to safely and effectively treat complex trauma and developmental disorders. Fraser's Dissociative Table Technique will be taught and demonstrated along with ways to integrate this powerful tool throughout the entire treatment. The art of time orientation will be demonstrated, giving clinicians many valuable tools and skills to eliminate the reliving that causes so much destabilization. Treating dissociative phobias and "problem parts" such as perpetrators, teenagers, critical and young parts will be demonstrated to prepare them for trauma reprocessing. Then specifics on how to titrate the reprocessing to keep the client inside the window of tolerance will complete this master class. All licensed mental health professionals are eligible to attend this two day workshop. Only EMDR Basic Trained are eligible for EMDRIA Credits.

The Power of EMDR: A Practicum for Personal and Professional Development
June 5th (PM) - June 8th, 2015

This practicum workshop will focus on fine tuning EMDR psychotherapy skills while at the same time providing a forum for significant personal growth. Participants will rotate the roles of therapist and client for approximately 60% of the workshop, using personal material to practice and integrate the advanced skills taught in the remaining 40% of the workshop hours. The emphasis is on developing EMDR psychotherapy skills working with attachment and complex trauma. A combination of lecture, videos and live demonstrations will be used to teach these applications. The practicum sessions will be closely supervised to ensure fidelity to the EMDR Standard Protocol and the successful integration of the advanced skills. Because of this close supervision, significant personal work can be accomplished within the practicum setting. The workshop size is limited to maintain a high level of individualized attention and learning.

The events listed above were facilitated by Kathleen Martin, LCSW, an EMDRIA Approved Consultant and Trainer. Kathy specializes in working with complex trauma and dissociation in her private practice in Rochester, NY. She has published an article in the EMDR Journal of Practice and Research detailing the use of Fraser's Dissociative Table for EMDR therapists. Another article entitled the Art of Time Orientation is in press. She teaches internationally on EMDR and topics related to the treatment of trauma and dissociation.

On the next day, plan to join me for Equine Inspired Ethics, an Equine Assisted Therapy based Ethics workshop. Get out of the office and those hard conference chairs and into the arena for those 4 Ethics CEU's!

This ethics and practice issues workshop provides attendees with an opportunity to develop greater self-awareness surrounding interpersonal and personal biases that can impact the therapeutic relationship.

In this four hour workshop therapists will participate in equine-assisted experiences and activities that provide opportunities to identify and explore patterns of projection and countertransference that can impact the therapeutic process. Practitioners learn, experientially, how these are ethical dilemmas and can be identified in the moment.

Attendees will also learn how to identify how these projections can cause 'rips' in the therapeutic relationship that need 'repairing' to create more positive treatment outcomes. Attendees will learn through case examples, hands on equine-assisted experiences, and interactive group discussions.
