1. Ostacoli, L. & Bertino, G. (2010, June). EMDR and drawing: A tool to integrate post-traumatic dissociation and overwhelming emotions. Presentation at the annual meeting of the EMDR Europe Association, Hamburg, Germany.
The difficulty of the management of overwhelming emotions aid dissociative reactions are challenging for any EMUR therapist dealing with complex traumas. As a complement to the strategies already used in EMDR, drawing gives form to The inner representations of the trauma, objectivizing it Thus the person no longer relates only to something inside him/her, but rather to something he/she can see and can concretely represent and modify In the act of drawing, the patient makes an initial reorganisation of the form of the trauma, and begins to differentiate the adaptive ego, which has the tools and the ability to restructure the experiences, and the traumatic emotional part that suffers those experiences in a condition of Impotence and passivity The person may rapidly access preverbal and motor-sensory language, activating inborn creative skills. The use of this tool enables us t0 access the traumatic material gently, limiting dissociative reactions, bypassing avoidance and flight behaviour and setting a distance from pan by objectivizing . A protective space is created between the self and the part that holds the suffering. p i n g a voice to the inner child. The patient is offered the possibility of drawing what is occurring in the self's here and now, and given a choice of different graphic materials. At the end of the drawing and assessment phase the person is asked to note what has emerged, and a brief space of time may be allowed for description without interpretation. The represented Image is treated as the inner image in the classic protocol. To start, the patent is asked to focus on the drawing, on the negative cognition and on the bodily location of the emotional disorder, while bilateral stimulation is applied. At the end of each set, the patient is asked what he/she has noticed and the therapist verifies where the person now is in the re-elaboration. If there is a change the person may either work on the drawing, modifying it, or, if the change of image is radical, may produce another drawing. After several sets, an adaptive drawing emerge5 that may be installed as a resource. The report presents the use of the tool in various psychopathological conditions, with the support of video and graphic materials, particularly focusing on how to manage dissociation. Learning objectives: 1.To learn the use of drawing as a supplementary tool, through graphic and video material of clinical cases. 2. To recognise the indications in which it provides added value to the classical protocol. 3. to learn its use in various psychopathological conditions, with particular emphasis on dissociative states. The use of drawing as a supplementary tool within the EMDR protocol gives form to the inner representation of the trauma, objectivising it, and creates a bridge of communication between the self and the blocked parts, after which it will be possible to return to desensitizing and re-elaboration with the standard protocol.

2. Gambuzza, C. A. (2010, June). Supervision, EMDR and ego state therapy. Poster presented at the annual meeting of the EMDR Europe Association, Hamburg, Germany .
The aim of this paper is to illustrate a self-reparation model within the framework of a supervision conducted my me. a therapy plan was defined for my colleague whose patentís traumatic experience brought to light her own unresolved traumatic material. This innovative approach is not limited to the parallel therapy involving both patient and therapist, but is an intervention model. a syncletic approach integrating the standard EMDR protocol and other contributions: the attachment theory. Freud's and Bion's 'dream-work', A, van der Kolk's and 0,van der Hart's dissociative disorders treatment, Forgash's and Knipe's Ego States Therapy, A. Shore's affection regulation and self-repair therapy, Eigen's vision of damaged bonds. Maternal abandonment was the common traumatic event. The patient's mother abandoned him at birth in hospital, where he remained for a year before being institutionalized and then adopted. My colleague was abandoned by her mother when she was one year old. The transition from supervision to EMDR was facilitated by the vast dream material produced by my colleague; her dreams represented targets for EMDR. According to Eigen, dream-work addresses the damage inflicted on the self, thus the traumas experienced, and plays a major role in digesting the impact of events and in metabolizing emotions: through the dreams we try to make the indigestible digestible. Dream-work constantly reveals states of the self: dreams evolve within damaged bonds and express the psyche's attempts to undo the damage or to get the best from it. EMDR shares the same objectives and tools same as dreams. At an operational level, EMDR made it possible to analyze the dream material and to integrate the dissociated dream material related to the traumatic, catastrophic abandonment induced damage. The Ego States Therapy allowed my colleague to talk with her dissociated Ego States, to negotiate with the States a higher behavioural model, and to free her Ego States held hostage by others. At the end of this journey, a dream expresses Ego States integration. Work on the future using EMDR is concluded with these thoughts "I want to thank you because the supervision, albeit not therapy, was an important experience that opened up a new space for me: the space of perspective. The beam of light crossing the two sheaves in the dream gives a meaning to the supervision, supervision has created a third dimension in me: the dream within the dream. It is the vehicle, the skill to perceive this dialogue space, intersubjective and intrasubjective, where things change. It alleviates the feeling of being impotent. The dialectical position enables me to speak. I am very grateful for that." My colleague's dreams were incorporated in a dream network and indicate the phases of EMDR induced mental digestion. My colleague has rebuilt herself in a supervision scenario. This study demonstrates the effectiveness of EMDR in hitherto unthought-of areas, i.e., within the framework of supervision.
