Bruce Hersey


Bruce Hersey is an IFS and EMDR trained therapist in the US whose practice focus has long been on complex disorders of attachment and trauma. He has taught numerous introductory IFS workshops, and presented at the IFS International Conference twice. He has been offering advanced IFS-Informed EMDR trainings over the past several years, having developed a systematic interweave of the two models over the past 17 years. It is a highly specific integration, which more recently has included ideas from Bruce Ecker’s Coherence Therapy, based on memory reconsolidation research.


A brief overview of the overlap of IFS and EMDR focusing on the underlying natural organic healing process, the nature of Dual Attention, how IFS and Coherence Therapy’s clinical model of memory reconsolidation align to bridge a gap in the EMDR Standard Protocol where protectors (defenses) are encountered. A Discovery process, named after a similar phase in Coherence Therapy is outlined as a useful intermediate form of EMDR processing which combines resourcing and indirect trauma processing within the Preparation Phase at the doorstep of a conventional Assessment Phase.
