The Contribution of a Dialectical Perspective to EMDR Theory & Therapy

Approved for 12 EMDRIA Credits

The dialectical perspective relates to the inherent movement between opposites (safety-danger, control-lack of control, worth-worthlessness) aiming toward a new synthesis, a new integration. The idea of polarities is central in philosophy as well as psychotherapy, from shamanism to modern approaches such as: Jung, Psychosynthesis, Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing, etc. The theoretical conceptualization, developed with Nomi Weiner, proposes that the adaptive information processing (AIP) system consists of two dialectical movements: a horizontal moving between various opposites of the individual and a vertical moving in whole/part shifts. The synergy of both movements results in a spiral descending to traumatic fragmentation or ascending to a greater integration and a sense of wholeness.
