About the Session

Session Description:

The workshop will introduce a collection of ego state therapy interventions from the Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy (DNMS) for stabilizing dysregulated, dissociative, and attachment-wounded clients. It will describe ways to talk directly to triggered wounded child parts (1) to welcome them; (2) to, attune, validate, and empathize with them; (3) to get them bonded with loving internal resources; (4) to orient them to present time; and (5) to reassure them that their perception of “reliving” an old trauma is just a harmless recording playing back. When these interventions are provided together, in the right order, they have a profound stabilizing effect.
