This workshop is open to all mental health clinicians

An award-winning treatment method 

to overcome children’s resistance to therapy

 

 A 2-Day Workshop for Mental Health Professionals

 

Any form of treatment focused on processing the traumatic memories can be used but preferably evidence- based treatments such as EMDR, play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy.

 

The treatment of severely traumatized children and adolescents usually focuses on helping the child and the family to process their traumatic experiences with EMDR therapy. But in some cases children cannot or do not want to participate in EMDR therapy. These children may for example refuse to talk about their traumatic memories, they may dissociate, or may say they have forgotten about it.  Cases such as these get stuck and often the trauma doesn’t get processed. We let ‘sleeping dogs lie’, with devastating consequences for future development. But how to help these children?

EMDR Therapy for Suicidal Clients and Self-Harming Behaviours

&

EMDR Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorders

IN ORDER TO GET CREDIT FOR THIS TRAINING, YOU MUST ATTEND ALL 2 DAYS,

YOU CANNOT MISS (OR BE LATE) FOR ANY PART OF THE TRAINING.

Self-harm and suicidal ideation are two issues that present considerable relational challenges for therapists. The patient who self-injures or thinks about killing himself poses a complex situation at a relational level. Being aware of our emotional responses as clinicians is a central aspect of the intervention.

In this workshop, we will explore, within the AIP model and EMDR intervention, the assessment, conceptualization, and management of the different stages of suicidal and self-harming ideation and behaviours, and the attendant emotional dysregulation.

The DSM-5 establishes the criteria for the Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) diagnosis, which includes frantic efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment, identity disturbance, impulsivity, potentially self-damaging behaviours, affective instability due to a marked reactivity of mood, suicidal ideation and a history of - or risk of - suicide attempts, chronic feelings of emptiness, difficulties to control anger, and dissociative symptoms.

 

This workshop helps understand Borderline pathology from the perspective of the Adaptive Information Processing model, as well as develop a sound case conceptualization of BPD cases.

The "Sleeping Dogs" Method

A 2-Day Workshop for Mental Health Professionals.

 

An award-winning treatment method 

to overcome children’s resistance to therapy.

 

The metaphor ‘sleeping dogs’ refers to traumatic memories that children refuse to or cannot discuss; by waking up the ‘sleeping dogs,’ traumatic memories become accessible and treatable. The goal of this treatment method is to get traumatized children and adolescents stabilized as quickly as possible so they can start processing those traumatic memories.

Workshop 2: Ricky Greenwald
