Putting It All Together
With so many models to choose from in the trauma field today, how do you decide which is best for your client? How do you decide whether to intervene at the somatic, emotional, behavioral, or cognitive level? This workshop will introduce a clear framework for integrating a range of models into your work and for determining the most appropriate interventions to meet your clients’ needs. You’ll learn to:
- Formulate cases based on Shapiro’s EMDR themes of responsibility, safety, and control
- Use Siegel’s Window of Tolerance and Porges’s Polyvagal Theory in deciding when and how to intervene with dysregulated arousal
- Apply Schwartz’s IFS model and Fosha’s AEDP model in addressing how to sequence interventions when dealing with defenses and core emotions such as grief, longing, anger, and shame
