1. Participants will apply EMDR therapy (Leeds, 2016; Shapiro, 2001) to resolve a range of presenting complaints in cases of symptoms of complex posttraumatic stress disorder including affect dysregulation, re-experiencing, avoidance, compulsive re-enactment, depression, panic and agoraphobia.
2. Participants will incorporate awareness of patient’s adult attachment classification (Cassidy and Shaver, 1999; Main, 1996) and degree of Structural Dissociation (van der Hart, Nijenhuis, and Steele, 2006) across all eight phases of EMDR therapy.
3. Participants will enhance or extend the preparation phase (Phase 2) to develop emotional self-regulation and assertive coping skills with Resource Development and Installation (Korn and Leeds, 2002; Leeds, 2016) when needed.
4. Participants will assess and resolve avoidance defenses through the use of the Loving Eyes procedures (Gonzalez, Mosquera, Knipe and Leeds, 2012; Knipe, 2015). and the CIPOS (Knipe, 2010, 2015).
5. Participants will select optimal sequences of past, present and future targets to effectively resolve patient symptoms with case formulations based on a) the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP: Leeds, 2016; Shapiro, 2001), b) attachment classification, and c) degree of structural dissociation.
