MID with Michael Coy

3 CEU's (EMDRIA Credits Pending)  

only $20 


Lunch and learn with your EMDR peers. Gather some of your EMDR therapists peers and share lunch and a great learning experience. Learn how to make the most of all the useful information in the MID while watching Michael Coy explain the updated MID and the manual.

EMDR Clinicians are instructed to assess further when clients present with an elevated score on the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) (Shapiro, 2018), or when other signs and complexities emerge during history taking and preparation. 

By far, the greatest number of reported difficulties and stories of clinical problems and potential harm through the improper use of EMDR have involved clients with dissociative disorders. On the other hand, trained clinicians report that proper application of EMDR greatly accelerates and eases treatment of this population.(Shapiro, 2001, p 308)

Proper use of EMDR requires an accurate assessment for pathological dissociation when indicated during Phase 1/History taking, in the process of discerning diagnosis of the client's presenting symptoms, in Phase 2/Preparation, and/or when signs of pathological dissociation arise during later phases of EMDR therapy.

The multidimensional inventory of dissociation (MID) has become a valuable assessment tool for clinicians using EMDR therapy to determine presence of pathological dissociation, and readiness for trauma processing. The MID is 218-item, self administered instrument with 169 dissociation items and 50 validity items developed by Paul F. Dell, PhD (2006, 2011). Unlike the DES, the MID reliably differentiates and diagnoses Post -Traumatic Stress Disorder, Otherwise Specified Dissociative Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Somatization Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder. It is an effective and accessible tool for EMDR clinicians, and is congruent with the standard preparation phase and administration of the DES.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to identify at least 3 key changes and updates in MID Analysis 4.0

Participants will be able to describe several ways the expanded MID Manual will be useful in the practice as an EMDR therapists and/or Approved Consultant.

Participants will be able to describe and identify key indicators to assess further for pathological dissociation and practical steps of how and when to do so during the course of the 8 Phases of EMDR therapy.

Participants will be able to administer, score and navigate the MID Analysis to input client responses, view and interpret results of the MID Report, and conduct a clinical interview to clarify results of the assessment and direction of treatment.

Participants will be able to describe several unique applications of the MID, based on case examples. and how the MID had been used to clarify diagnosis, and treatment planning in both clinical and consultation roles.
