CE Information — A Relational Model for Parts/Ego State Work in EMDR Therapy


A Relational Model for Parts/Ego State Work in EMDR Therapy is a practical training in the integration of “parts” or ego state work with EMDR practice. It has evolved from Andrew Seubert’s work as an EMDR consultant and trainer, during which Andrew realized the crucial need for ego state competence when working with trauma and dissociation (this workshop will NOT address extreme forms of dissociation, viz., DID).

This is a relational model that utilizes the relationship among parts, client and therapist to achieve personality-wide collaboration and eventual healing. It is completely compatible with other models of parts therapy.

The course goal is for participants to acquire the competence and confidence to utilize ego state work within a trauma-informed approach. This applies to both those new to the use of parts work, as well as those wishing to hone their existing skills.


  1. Identify three major approaches to explaining ego state phenomena.
  2. Explain the acronym RUG-C to describe the major steps in working with parts.
  3. Practice the conference room technique to make contact with parts.
  4. Identify two scenarios that complicate and, potentially, interfere with parts work.
  5. Recall the “5 Rs” as a mnemonic to recall the steps in resource (reparenting) work with young ego states.
  6. Apply a strategy regarding where and when an ego state approach fits into the EMDR phase model.
  7. Explain how to make contact with and utilize healthy and helpful parts of the personality.
  8. Identify how to provide attachment repair of wounded, younger parts.
