An Inside Look for EMDR & Trauma Therapists with Dr. Jamie Marich

Prerequisite: At least partial basic/foundational training in EMDR Therapy

Dr. Jamie Marich is one of the few members of the EMDR Therapy training community to be fully out and proud about her experience of having a clinically significant dissociative disorder and active dissociative system. In this two-day interactive workshop, Jamie shares research interview findings from her most recent book project, Dissociation Made Simple: A Stigma-Free Guide to Embracing Your Dissociative Mind and Navigating Life. A passionate advocate seeking to tear down the “us vs. them” wall that exists between clinical professionals and those with dissociative disorders, Marich used the research method in which she trained during her doctoral work (phenomenology) to investigate lived experience of people with dissociative experiences of life. Professionals, survivors, and some identifying as both, were asked to answer the same eight questions about dissociation that formed the base of inquiry for the book. In this workshop, you will receive a first-hand tour of what the project is revealing and what the implications are for advocacy and smashing stigma in the helping professions and society at large. The sixty-one project contributors share valuable insights on what works for grounding/anchoring, and deeper healing. With many people of color and Indigenous individuals offering experience for this project, the norms of Western psychology and its limited view around dissociation are necessarily challenged.

Day 1 of the course is largely foundational, using contributor insight to help participants conceptualize dissociation and all its manifestations in very human yet clinically relevant ways.

Day 2 is more specifically focused on EMDR Therapy, as the lived experiences of many contributors with EMDR Therapy—the positive, the neutral, and the cautionary tales—are explored. Dr. Marich will discuss the learning that can be taken from our contributors on how to more effectively conduct EMDR Therapy case conceptualization in a way that honors dissociative experiences.

Several opportunities for small group discussion are provided throughout the course to further translate the wisdom of the book contributors into clinical implementation. As always with Dr. Marich’s courses, participants will be challenged to look at their own experiences with dissociation as a way to help them better understand their clients.

The course (12 CEs) counts as an elective towards the Institute for Creative Mindfulness’ Advanced Certificate in Dissociation Studies for EMDR Therapists.

This course offers 12 CE credits and 12 EMDRIA credits in collaboration with Dr. Jamie’s organization, The Institute for Creative Mindfulness.

A General Note About Approvals

Please also note that APA-approved sponsors are accepted by many state boards, such as California BBS and major licensure boards within the state of Pennsylvania. In both of these cases, separate paperwork does not need to be filled out. Many state boards also accept out-of-state providers, which is why our Ohio approvals appear on every training. In some states, pre- or post-program approval forms must be sent, and you are responsible for checking into the rules of the licensure board in your state as to what is required. Please let the Institute for Creative Mindfulness know if you need support documentation in any way for these pre or post-program approval applications.
