This month, we are fortunate to have Kate Cohen-Posey with us to share her groundbreaking work: ” EMDR, ego state therapy integrated.” The program will help you translate cutting-edge advances in brain research into practical methods that may reduce clients’ resistance, transform deeply disturbing emotions, and reinforce treatment interventions. Clients can be taught to locate hidden strengths and dissolve distress by activating their brains’ reward centers. In this workshop, we’ll use tools developed from memory reconsolidation and Polyvagal Theory. The presentation will include demonstration and experiential components.

Her goal is to help therapists find fun, easy ways to do therapy. She is a PESI Institute faculty member and a frequent contributor to the Psychotherapy Networker. Her best-selling client handout books offer concise information on common disorders and relationship problems; She is the inventor of the Handy Brain Model – a teaching tool that makes complex neurological information understandable. Kate has a knack for integrating wisdom from CBT, Ericksonian hypnosis, Gestalt, Ego State, EMDR, Somatic, and Brain-spotting therapies with knowledge emerging from neuroscience and brain imaging studies. She has also studied with the Hokori-Ji Zen Center and has been practicing yoga for many years.
