Stephanie A. Johnson, LCSW
Certified EMDR Therapist and Approved Consultant

Can I Do This? C-PTSD and Dissociation within the 8 phases of EMDR. Join Stephanie Johnson for an in-person, hands-on discussion about C-PTSD and Dissociation. An EMDRIA Approved Intermediate-Advanced EMDR Training.

Stephanie has been working as an LCSW for over 20 years. Her experience spans from inpatient mental health hospital for acute short-term stabilization,  adolescent residential treatment for mental health/behavioral issues, and private practice.

Course Description: This advanced level course teaches how to blend an existing 8 phases of EMDR clinical skill set into the treatment of C-PTSD and Dissociation. Working from Pierre Janet's 3 phased trauma treatment model, participants will gain additional tools to aid in effectively managing the window of tolerance during treatment.

Course Objectives: 

1.) Compare/Contrast C-PTSD from PTSD
2.) Identify complex stress reactions of C-PTSD
3.) Review differences between DID and OSDD diagnoses
4.) Identify dissociative features and adaptations
5.) Mesh C-PTSD and Dissociation clinical skills into all 8 Phases of EMDR sessions and recognize the fluidity of phases
6.) Phase 1: List 8 identifiers that could indicate the presence of C-PTSD and/or Dissociation in order to use 5 types of assessments to gain further client information and insight into experiences while Organizing/Constructing biopsychosocial information into EMDR targets.
7.) Phase 2: Develop a minimum of 2 skills and resources to utilize for resourcing and stabilization to practice using EMD^/EMDr in assisting desensitization/stabilization in Phase 2 through Phase 3 by interpreting how to use the seven questions to assess the client’s readiness to continue to next phases.
8.) Phase 4: Identify multiple tools to use for stabilization between sets (e.g. quick grounding, back of head scale) to explain how to use Phase 2 skills to aid in keeping client in window of tolerance during Phase 4 and into Phase 5 by reporting 5 key points to consider at this phase when working with C-PTSD and Dissociation.
9.) Phase 6: Recognize how to incorporate the whole self during body scan and practice use of language leading into Phase 7 by identifying the role of grounding/stabilization, and then apply the use of slow bilateral for enhancement of adaptive belief.
10.) Phase 8: Identify and highlight the importance of reevaluation and potential expansion during treatment.This exemplifies how EMDR fits into Pierre Janet's 3-phases of trauma treatment in clinical during this reevaluation.
