In the last few years, the field of trauma has focused more on the treatment of self-division, inner conflicts, and fragmentation that is related to trauma. Ego-State Therapy is based on the premise that when the self is overwhelmed, especially by ongoing trauma, parts of the self get split off from the rest of the personality through dissociation in an attempt to maintain integrity and wholeness. As a result, the self can keep functioning without knowledge of, or full knowledge of, what otherwise might be overwhelming trauma. This “fragmentation” can protect us, and help us go on functioning. But our ability to function may be limited, may be incomplete, because not all of our ego states (our “parts”) are in alignment with one another – or in some case, even present. The resulting disarray can give rise to conflicts that block progress in life and impede therapy, since states that need the most help (or who could help the most) may not be participating.
In this workshop, you will learn how to integrate the principles and practices of Ego-State Therapy into your work with your most challenging clients. On Day One, Dr. Phillips will focus on a four stage model that can help you empower and stabilize your clients and help you find and work with ego states that contribute to or cause various symptoms and difficulties, as well as those who can help to resolve them. In addition, you will learn to find and work with the conflict-free self to build an effective platform for developmental repair as well as to renegotiate traumatic events so that the self can re-integrate.
Day Two topics will focus on special clinical applications of ego-state therapy. You will learn how to identify ego states through primitive body experiences in order to work with very early trauma, how to use hypnotic suggestions to help ego states build alliances and work cooperatively toward common goals, how to use EMDR, Energy Psychology, Somatic Experiencing, and other tools to resource, regulate and repair trauma-related difficulties. Workshop topics will include efficient resolution of pain, anxiety, depression, panic, and complex problems such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, triggering, as well as more challenging atypical symptoms.
As time permits, we will compare Ego-State Therapy with other major “parts” models in psychotherapy including Structural Dissociation, Internal Family Systems, Parts Psychology and others. We will also make time for case consultation and clinical questions.
