1. Muret, M. (2010, April). Dissociative vs. associative techniques to treat dissociation. Presentation at the 2nd Bi-Annual International European Society for Trauma and Dissociation Conference, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
In the past two decades, various effective techniques have been developed for the treatment of trauma: EMDR, EMI, EFT, OEI, NLP, SE, etc. These different techniques inevitably raise the question: “Which techniques should be used for which patients? “ Because dissociative disordered patients may react to trauma work with dissociative detachment, a "low impact" technique is needed. Thus, therapeutic approaches that employ a certain degree of dissociative distancing seem to be well-suited to dissociative patients. Richard Bandler (NLP) and, more recently, Cary Craig (EFT) have developed calm, nondramatic ways to address trauma and solve problems. EMDR, a more associative method, seems better suited to stable patients who possess good resources. This workshop will present a continuum that locates techniques along a scale of increasing degrees of confrontation. Special attention will be given to EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), an easy-to-learn method. Techniques for reinforcing the Somatic Self during EMDR sessions will be explained. The second part of this workshop will present a conceptualization for these techniques, based on the works of Stephen Porges, Ellert Nijenhuis and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (Flow Theory).
Learning Outcomes The attendee will learn to consider the danger(retraumatization) of an intervention. According to the kind of patient and situation, he will be better able to choose the best available technique. For newcomers a basic methode of EFT will be taught, that can be later used in simple cases. Through a "participative" teaching the attendee will understand and integrate difficult abstracts concepts like: polyvagal model, structural dissociation, mental tension, ...

2. Beaulieu, P. D. (2005, October). EMI et EMDR: Ressemblances et différences. Bulletin APQ, 1(1), 14-15.
Dans le champ de la psychothérapie, les intervenants peuvent avoir recours à différentes techniques: l’hypnose, la PNL, la désensibilisation systématique, la thérapie d’Impact, etc. À l’heure actuelle, deux d’entre elles se démarquent plus particulièrement: l’EMI (Eye Movement Integration Therapy) et l’EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). Comme chacun le sait, ces techniques sont utilisées pour traiter les états de stress post-traumatiques et les souvenirs récurrents et négatifs. Comme elles présentent certaines ressemblances – dont la plus évidente est qu’elles font toutes deux appel à des mouvements oculaires –, il arrive souvent qu’elles soient confondues. Le présent article ayant comme principal objectif de les distinguer, nous aborderons divers aspects permettant de circonscrire leurs particularités propres: nous verrons donc les origines de chacune de ces techniques, le type de segments effectués, les mouvements oculaires impliqués et, enfin, la manière dont ces techniques s’appliquent lors des traitements.

3. St-André, E. (2007, June). PTSD secondary to Fournier's grangrene: 1-Comparison of two eye modalities, 2-Legal and ethical issues. Presentation at the annual meeting of the EMDR Europe Association, Paris, France.
G. G., a man in his mid 30s was brought to medico-legal service to assess fitness to stand trial, and criminal responsibility, after a brief appearance in court: He was charged with death threats.
G. G. was quite angry about his situation, and argumentative against health and justice systems. Physically, he was short stature, extremely lean, his body was leaning forward.
He was living alone, has a girl of thirteen, which he saw once in a while.
He was not working for few years, after two major events; he lost his garage after a huge fire (from which he escaped alive and safe), and was few months earlier, found almost dead by a neighbor. Brought to the hospital, he had more than ten surgeries in a few days, to lance many wound, as he as suffering of Fournier’s disease. He was left with his body leaning forward about 45 degrees, 4 cm thick scar around his abdomen, a severely deformed genitalia, and chronic pain. Another surgery was performed later which permitted the man to be less leaned forward.
Before those events, he wasn’t known from psychiatry. He had a life that he considered, “okay,” even though he was separated. He has his own garage, a social life. He admitted some alcohol and drugs use in the past. After the illness and the fire, he was seen more often in psychiatry. Specialists concluded from time to time to chronic adjustment disorder, and drug addiction, and oriented him to resources for his problem. No follow-up in psychiatry.
G. G. was so much in pain that he took cocaine repeatedly for few minutes’ relief.
With this story and symptoms description, severe PTSD diagnosis was made and treatment initiated accordingly, with introduction of ISRS, and later, seroquel, to decrease dissociative episode he was still experimenting. With informed consent, we had three sessions of EMI, which helped him in various ways; The nightmares decreased of 50%, after the first treatment, he was less angry and afraid of hospital and care, and was more in control of dissociative episodes. Sleep improved, so did his mood. He was eve able to go for correction of his deformed genitalia. Even though still on medication, he felt that the therapy helped him much to recover. After his discharge and end of court process, he was able to go back home. We were at the time unable to do more treatments, as he was involved in his physical rehabilitation. He had at least 2 other reconstructive surgeries.
This case allows discussion about similarities, pros and cons of EMI and EMDR, in their theories and practice. More importantly, this case raises important ethical and legal questions about adequate diagnosis and treatment of PTSF which include powerful tools as EMDR. This tool is yet relatively unknown from general population, and available mainly (in Quebec, Canada) through private facilities. From ethical standpoint, it should be more readily available – without fees – in public services.

4. Albermann, E. M. (2007, September). Trauma - therapie energetisch u. integrativ, EP, EMDR, EMI und hynotherapie [Trauma therapy - Energetic and integrative, EP, EMDR, EMI and hynotherapy]. Vortrag im Rahmen der Ersten Europäischer Kongress für Energie-Psychologie und Psychotherapie, Heidelberg, Deutschland.
Traumatherapie – energetisch, integrativ und modern: Energetische Psychologie, EMDR, EMI (Eye Movement Integration) und systemische Hypnotherapie bieten in ihrer Kombination eine einzigartige Möglichkeit, Traumata zu integrieren. Dazu kommen noch neue Möglichkeiten mit Biofeedback am Computer in Form von Spielen und ansprechenden Rückmeldemöglichkeiten über die Balance der autonomen Körpersysteme, die Patienten und Therapeuten auch spielerisch selbst einsetzen können. Ein paar Vorschläge auf diesem spannenden Feld soll dieser Workshop aufzeigen in einer Kombination von Theorie, praktischen Übungen, gemeinsamer Diskussion und Demonstration.
Trauma therapy - energetic, inclusive and modern: energy psychology, EMDR, EMI (Eye Movement Integration) and systemic hypnotherapy when combining a unique opportunity to integrate trauma. In addition, there are new opportunities with biofeedback on the computer in the form of games and use feedback attractive opportunities over the balance of the autonomous body systems, patients and therapists also play themselves. A few suggestions in this exciting field, this workshop is to show a combination of theory, practical exercises, joint discussion and demonstration.
