2 March (GLASGOW) -
Healing Complex Trauma & Dissociation With Ego
State Therapy and EMDR
Dr Michael C. Paterson OBE
Dr Michael Paterson is a Clinical
Psychologist based in Belfast specialising in the
treatment of multiply traumatised people. It was
largely based on his clinical work with EMDR that he
was awarded the OBE in 2008 for Services to Healthcare
in Northern Ireland.
PhD, DClinPsych, CPsychol, AFBPsS
EMDR Europe Accredited Senior Trainer
Always an advocate for EMDR, Michael sat on CREST in
2003 (Northern Ireland) and played a key role in
ensuring the recommendation of EMDR as an effective
treatment for PTSD in adults; the guidance from CREST
subsequently fed into the NICE deliberations and their
recommendation in 2005.
He was invited by Dr Shapiro to train with her as an
EMDR Institute Trainer, joining the Institute’s
Faculty in 2006. Michael is a Past President of
the EMDR Association of UK & Ireland.
Michael has authored a chapter in the landmark book,
Healing the Heart of Trauma and Dissociation with EMDR
and Ego State Therapy. He has also published
articles on stress, and on trauma in the emergency
services. He has presented at conferences on
treating complex PTSD, and also conferences
specialising in dissociation.
This workshop initially provides an overview of
dissociation and how it impacts on EMDR processing.
There will be an explanation of Ego State Therapy
(EST) and how it fits with EMDR to provide the
stabilization clients need, as well as dealing with
blocked processing. Clinical case material is
used throughout to illustrate learning points.
Through demonstration and practice participants will
learn how to build resources for clients, access ego
states in a controlled way and effect therapeutic
change. In the latter part of the day, participants
will see videos of live cases where EST is used
effectively in the Preparation Phase of EMDR to: 1)
identify the part-selves and 2) moderate the
malevolence displayed by two difficult ego states.
