Shirley Jean Schmidt, MA, LPC
16 EMDRIA Credits
Our most dysregulated, dissociative clients have wounded parts of self that are stuck in the past. Because these wounded parts are easily triggered, they keep clients in a perpetual state of overwhelm — putting safe and effective EMDR out of reach. This online course will lay out a systematic way to prepare clients for EMDR — a detailed road map for improving emotion regulation. It will start by illuminating important differences between foundational stability and foundational instability. It will distinguish trauma wounds from attachment wounds and explain why that distinction matters. It will cover ego state therapy interventions unique to Shirley Jean Schmidt’s Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy that are highly effective at stabilizing dissociated parts of self.
