This specialty training will equip practitioners with tools to assess and address dissociative identity phenomena and parts work in sessions.  Therapists will learn new advanced level concepts, techniques, and set-ups to engage the neuroexperiential processing of the client’s dissociative survival adaptations and in working with their parts.  Therapists will deepen their responsiveness to the attachment, developmental, and traumatic wounding of their clients.

Come join us and develop yourself as a provider working with complex trauma, dissociative identity phenomena, and parts.

DIP Training participants will learn to:

  1. Distinguish different types of dissociation and parts along the continuum of dissociative responses
  2. Summarize the DID “Primer” foundations from the Brainspotting Phase 1 training
  3. Recognize the impacts of attachment, developmental, neglect, and traumatic wounding
  4. Identify the foundations of a developmental “diagnosis”
  5. Evaluate when to do an assessment of dissociative adaptations and which instruments may be useful
  6. Apply a series of Mosaic Inner Parts Exercises© with clients
  7. Determine how to attune to the client’s self-system© through the lens of the 6 F’s of Trauma Response©
  8. Modify the traditional DID and C-PTSD three-stage treatment model to provide more effective therapeutic interventions, while creatively following the client in the spirit of “being in the tail of the comet”
  9. Employ Brainspotting principles as the primary foundation within the neuro-experiential dual attunement model when working with vulnerable folks with dissociative phenomena
  10. Discover how the two-part dual frame© receives the frame and the self-system of the client
  11. llustrate metaphors for dissociative process with clients
  12. Describe dissociative phenomena languaging to relate to a specific client’s language
  13. Discern when to utilize standard Brainspotting techniques with dissociative adaptations and when to apply specialized Building Block DIP Therapeutic Activities© when needed
  14. Implement a flexible therapeutic mapping of internal parts and insiders
  15. Engage in an internal dissociative table technique through the application of Brainspotting
  16. Integrate specialized scaffolding techniques to support the frame and the client’s self-system© to safely engage insiders and parts in trauma processing
  17. Create levels of support responsive to differing suicide risks and self-states of suicidality
  18. Navigate the complexity of unique dissociative self-system challenges
  19. Conceptualize limbic countertransference within the 6F and dissociation framework
  20. Develop a stance of humility in the repair of the therapeutic ruptures of mis-attunement, enactments, limbic countertransference, and stepping on landmines
  21. Synthesize new Brainspotting techniques for use with dissociative identity phenomena and inner parts, including Advanced BlindSpotting© and setting up the Yellow Brick Road Technique©

Pre-Requisites: Brainspotting Phase 1 and 2 required.

I am also offering a monthly DIP consultation group to offer support to clinicians who are interested in learning about working with persons struggling with dissociative identity phenomenon, in expanding the skill set and knowledge in working with this population, and supporting other clinicians who are working with persons within this population. You can find registration for this consultation group here.

Connie Johnshoy-Currie, Psy.D., is a Licensed Psychologist in Southern California. Connie has been working with dissociative identity phenomena, as well as developmental, attachment, and traumatic injuries, since early 1980 with her masters degree. She has been trained in specialty work with dissociative phenomena.  Her specialization in work with children and adolescents has greatly enhanced her work with developmental disruption and young child and adolescent parts and insiders.  She has worked with clients experiencing dissociative phenomena with both EMDR and BSP effectively.

Her treatment specialty areas include PTSD, Complex PTSD and Dissociative Identity Phenomenon (DIP, DID), child and adolescents, developmental and structuralization internal work, parts work, and she works extensively with second responders (mental health providers). Dr. Johnshoy-Currie provides a monthly Networking Consultation Group in both Brainspotting (since 2008) and EMDR (since 1998), currently via zoom. She offers a monthly specialty consultation group for clinicians working with children and adolescents and for clinicians seeking to develop their competence in working with dissociative identity phenomenon and traumatic injury.
