Module 5

July 24, 2018

Our July module emphasizes three different, though overlapping pathways, to resolving self-fragmentation. Dr. Janina Fisher, Kathy Steele, MN, CS, and Dr. Maggie Phillips combine forces to discuss their unique pathways to helping complex clients to create unified and empowered selves.

On Tuesday, July 24, from 9:00 am – 11:00 am Pacific time, these three presenters will present a special two-hour webinar on How to Resolve Complex Self-Fragmentation.

Topic areas will include:

  • What does it mean to work with “parts” and how do we define them?
  • How to distinguish ego states from dissociated parts and treatment implications;
  • How to create a cohesive treatment plan (when to work with parts and in what sequence);
  • Working with various types of ego state parts: Preverbal and other child parts, resource parts, persecutory and abusive states, and frozen parts;
  • How to avoid triangulation with parts;
  • Pros and cons of utilizing the clients’ dissociative barriers in treatment;
  • Common treatment frame issues with dissociative clients (including transference and countertransference).

Each presenter will draw on their recent books and articles including:

  • Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Overcoming Internal Alienation (J. Fisher),
  • Treating Trauma-Related Dissociation: A Practical, Integrated Approach (K. Steele) 
  • Empowering the Self through Ego-State Therapy (M. Phillips & C. Frederick).
