Approved for 6 EMDRIA Credits
Participants will be introduced to the MID in this ‘walk-through,’ during which they will learn to administer and score the MID; navigate the MID Analysis to enter data, interpret results, and conduct a follow-up interview; and begin to understand how the information offered up by the MID Report may influence treatment. Those who are new to the study of dissociation will also learn about later-treatment phase Indicators to go back and assess for pathological dissociation, as well as, in a concrete way, to connect MID impressions with what clinicians may see (or have already seen) in client sessions.
Case examples will be discussed, with particular attention paid to how certain clusters of dissociative symptoms could influence clinician’s decisions regarding the use of specific kinds of preparation and trauma accessing methods. Implications for stabilization and potential markers for readiness for trauma accessing in an EMDR therapy frame will be offered.
