Approved for 14 EMDRIA Credits
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 behaviors, and the attendant emotional dysregulation.
