Principles and Procedures for Creating Successful Treatment Outcomes for Adult Survivors of Neglect & Abuse

This home study course (available in audio or near verbatim transcript) provides the theoretical framework and organizing principles for incorporating affect tolerance, Resource Development, and Installation, and EMDR trauma reprocessing into successful overall treatment plans.

Principles for case formulation and treatment planning are presented that integrate adult attachment status, the formation of affect scripts and emotional self-regulation capacities, the severity of dissociative symptoms as well as specific traumatic experiences.

Participants will learn specific treatment strategies and methods for working with adults whose childhood failed to meet basic needs for stability and attachment and who may have been exposed to chronic trauma.

Participants will determine how to enhance the therapeutic alliance and to build a detailed yet flexible treatment plan in complex cases.

Participants will describe how to sequence development of needed resources and processing specific memories in three stages of recovery:
a) stabilization and safety;
b) resolving loss and traumatic memories;
c) reconnection and strengthening of identity.

Participants will be able to describe key research on affect theory, attachment theory, the developmental neurobiology of affect regulation and the formation of maladaptive schemas.

Participants will apply principles and strategies to assess adult attachment status to aid in planning advanced treatment and intervention strategies.

Participants will apply fundamental principles and specific procedures to develop affect tolerance and to develop and install resources for strengthening self-capacities and reworking maladaptive schemas.

Participants will identify practical self-care strategies for patients and clinicians.

Participants will prevent crises by working through potential problems including transference and counter transference issues.

Participants will assess challenging cases that illustrate case formulation and treatment planning.

Participants will be able to identify frequent difficulties and common warning signs of structural dissociation and dissociative disorders and thereby minimize technical errors.

Participants will be able to define and use specific terms related to the treatment of individuals with dissociative disorders including: complex trauma; structural dissociation; dissociative parts of the personality; apparently normal parts (ANP) and emotional parts (EP) of the personality; action systems; primary, secondary and tertiary structural dissociation; and dissociative phobias.

Participants will be able to actively use EMDR therapy in the early phases of treatment on dissociative phobias based on an expanded AIP model of dysfunctionally stored information (DSI) that includes interoceptive information related to dissociative phobias and psychological defenses.

When working with clients with dissociative disorders, participants will be able to make use of alternate EMDR therapy procedures to enhance development of high order mental functions including capacities for mindfulness, metacognitive awareness and mentalization.

When working with clients with dissociative disorders, participants will be able to implement successful communication and EMDR therapy interventions based on working with the Adult Self in the Meeting Place Procedure.

Participants will implement EMDR therapy skills for helping clients with dissociative disorders to develop healthier patterns of self-care.

Participants will use EMDR therapy to resolve dissociative phobias, permitting clients to progressively approach, access and reprocess traumatic memories in a safe and effective way.

Participants will recognize and successfully work through challenges in the therapeutic relationship with clients with dissociative disorders.

Participants will implement a “progressive approach” – in contrast to an “all or nothing” strategy for working with traumatic memories in clients with dissociative disorders including the use of the Tip of the Finger Strategy (TFS).

Phase One: Simplifying case formulation, history taking and target sequence
Presenter Andrew M. Leeds, PhD - 3.0 EMDRIA Credits

In the EMDR approach to psychotherapy, each patient is approached in an individualized manner. This presentation will clarify core elements of history taking and AIP informed case formulation including pacing, methods and depth of history taking and simple ways to screen for factors that complicate EMDR therapy. Participants will consider best practices for responding to Phase one case vignettes including: pacing history taking, prior adverse EMDR therapy experiences, and fears of facing a traumatic past. Forms for organizing patient history, triggers, symptoms and concerns will be presented and reviewed. Sample target sequences will be presented for common treatment plans.

Learning to Feel Good Sharing Positive Emotion: the Positive Affect Tolerance protocol
Presenter Andrew M. Leeds, PhD - 3.0 EMDRIA Credits

Insufficient maternal-infant play and flat maternal affect leave survivors of early neglect prone to depersonalization and to experiencing shared positive emotion as aversive. The AIP Model, Attachment theory, Putnam's discrete behavioral states and McCullough's affect phobia models will be synthesized in the theoretical foundation for the Positive Affect Tolerance and Integration Protocol (PAT; Leeds, 2002, 2006). An updated PAT protocol using EMDR procedural steps – with slight modifications – is presented to increase tolerance for shared positive emotional states, develop resilience and a more positive self-concept. Case examples illustrate criteria and potential benefits of this approach with the aim of encouraging further research. (Intermediate) 80%

Mechanisms of Action in EMDR Therapy: Multiplex Effects of Bilateral Stimulation (Video Course)

Mechanisms of action in EMDR therapy: Multiplex Effects of Bilateral Stimulation
Presenter Andrew M. Leeds, PhD - 1.5 EMDRIA Credits


After 25 years of research on EMDR therapy’s mechanisms, we cannot provide an evidence based explanation for all its treatment effects. Before examining mechanisms, we must first consider differences between mediators, mechanisms and moderators of change in general psychotherapy (Kazdin, 2007) and in EMDR therapy. An analysis of the literature generates six distinct hypothesized mechanisms of action that provide diverse multiplex effects, sometimes converging and sometimes diverging, leading to various outcomes in different clinical contexts and in different EMDR procedures. Implications for EMDR therapy include moderators such as degree of structural dissociation and mediators including modes of bilateral stimulation.

AIP, Attachment Theory and EMDR Case Conceptualization
Presenter Andrew M. Leeds, PhD - 3.0 EMDRIA Credits

With complex cases many clinicians struggle with case formulation and predicting responses to EMDR reprocessing. This presentation integrates the Adaptive Information Processing Model with adult attachment classification. Clinical case examples illustrate practical clinical strategies for assessing attachment classification as a foundation for case formulation. With conflicting models for treatment planning in the standard EMDR text, this presentation offers a symptom informed approach, incorporating elements of the parallel models of Korn (Korn, et al., 2004) and Leeds (2004). Case example treatment plans will be presented in a visual format to illustrate how this model can be applied to simple and complex cases. (Intermediate) 75%
