Description

For years I got stuck with my complex trauma clients.

The traditional standalone approaches everyone recommended seemed to fail me as my clients’ unresolved conflicts kept sabotaging our efforts toward healing. Session after session I was met with defensiveness and resistance. It was exhausting…and soon doubt and frustration started to creep in.

But one day the solution became clear -- complex trauma requires complex treatment -- not a standalone therapy.

Now in this one-day seminar I’ll show you how you can more successfully access deeply rooted pain points and move clients past the internal conflicts that hang them up in treatment by integrating elements of EMDR with skills from a parts work approach!

Watch this unique, advanced level trauma treatment course, so you can:

  • More safely gather your client’s trauma history
  • Manage dissociation and fragmentation in clients using skills from parts work therapy
  • Create a safe healing environment using modified EMDR therapy protocols
  • Confidently use relational skills and somatic therapy for improved complex trauma treatment

Making the change to an integrated EMDR and parts work approach turned my treatment completely around. Since that day I’ve found tremendous success with my clients, authored several books on complex trauma and trained thousands of clinicians.

Don’t miss this chance to take your complex trauma treatment to the next level!
