Integrating Contemporary Models of Trauma Treatment: Case Conceptualization, Decision Making and Interventions  (3.5CE)*

Program Description: This workshop is designed to help clinicians, who use a variety of therapeutic approaches, consider how to organize treatment plans and make moment-to-moment decisions about which interventions may best meet their clients’ needs. To establish a framework for this task, Dr. Debbie Korn will 1) introduce a clear clinical map to guide the integration of ideas and strategies from IFS, EMDR, AEDP (and perhaps a sprinkling of other models for good measure); 2) discuss different lenses for conceptualizing complex trauma cases; 3) highlight each model’s most useful concepts and interventions; 4) explore common denominators across the models; and 5) identify each model’s unique contributions. Throughout the workshop, video recordings will be used to demonstrate the integration of these treatment models and to facilitate discussion.


Note:  Please be advised that this workshop is appropriate for all interested clinicians whether or not you are familiar with IFS, EMDR, and/or AEDP.  Also, though this workshop is, in a sense, a follow-up to last year’s Spring Friday Afternoon Panel Presentation focused on these 3 compelling models, participation in that program is not a pre-requisite in any way for this upcoming event.

Debbie Korn, PsyD, maintains a private practice in Cambridge, MA, and is an adjunct training faculty member at the Trauma Center in Boston. She has been on the faculty of the EMDR Institute for the past 25 years and is the former Clinical Director of the Womens’ Trauma Programs at Charter Brookside and Charles River Hospitals. Dr. Korn has authored or coauthored several prominent articles focused on EMDR, including a comprehensive review of EMDR applications with Complex PTSD. Dr. Korn is an EMDRIA-approved consultant and a past board member of NESTTD. She is also on the Editorial Board of the Journal of EMDR Practice and Research. She presents and consults internationally on the treatment of adult survivors of childhood abuse and neglect. She has been a regular presenter at the EMDR International Association Conference and was invited to present EMDRIA’s first “Masters Series” class. As a clinician, teacher, researcher, and consultant, Dr. Korn is known for her knowledge and integration of many different clinical models. In treating and consulting on complex, chronically traumatized cases, she believes that it is important to carry a large toolbox and to remain flexible, practical, and integrative.
