This training is suitable for psychologists, counsellors, psychiatrists, social workers and mental health workers. EMDR training is helpful, but it is not a prerequisite for this course. 


This is Robin's first visit to Australia and an extraordinary opportunity to spend time with Robin for an intensive 3 day training. Expect these workshops to fill quickly. 

Both trainings will be hybrid format, both in-person and online.

Robin Shapiro's "Easy Ego State Interventions" training is a deep dive into a new way to formulate and respond to your clients. Robin will share an abundance of practical interventions and strategies, that will inevitably strengthen and change the way you work in clinical practice. 

Participants will learn to see clients through the lens of Ego State Therapy and EMDR and to distinguish healthy, flexible states from dissociative ones. They will learn to resolve trauma, work with couples, work with sexual issues with abuse survivors, address shame, pain, personality disorders, and dissociative identity disorder - through lecture, practice, and discussion of case examples. The training is appropriate for both EMDR and non-EMDR practitioners. By the end of the training you will know how to:     

  • Distinguish between Dissociative and Other Ego States
  • Describe the 3 Polyvagal States.
  • Utilize the 2-Hand Interweave.
  • Utilize a simple ego state intervention for simple trauma.
  • Describe ways to use ego state work in Couples’ Therapy.
  • Describe and apply Jim Knipe’s Shame Protocol.
  • Describe and apply Ego State Work with Borderline and Narcissistic Clients.
  • Describe the 3 stages of work with DID clients, from the Theory of Structural Dissociation.
  • Describe and utilize the Dissociative Table and alternative ways to organize and contain dissociative parts.
  • Describe when it’s safe to do trauma work with DID clients and when to use and not use EMDR.
  • Utilize appropriate trauma strategies with Dissociative Disorder clients, including modified EMDR protocols, modified Life Span Integration, and others.
  • Utilize EMDR and ego state therapy to heal over-active immune systems, chronic pain, Long COVID, and Tinnitus.
  • Utilize ego state therapy with suicidal clients.

The 3-day format includes ample time for practice, questions, clinical demonstrations and real time case consultation. And despite the seriousness of the subject, expect to enjoy the process. Many participants have personal transformation during the practice. Most are using the material as soon as they get back to work. 

          “It was full to the brim, well-structured and lots of demonstrations. I learned tons and would recommend her wholeheartedly. And I now know myself very differently!” (participant of Easy Ego State Intervention workshop).


This training will be live-streamed and recorded, and recordings will be made available to all participants for up to 3 months after the event. 

In-person attendees will be provided with tea and coffee facilities for all days of the training. Food will not be provided. 

Refund policy: Full refund (minus processing fees) up to 30 days before the event.
