Course Description: Over the past 27 years, EMDR has been heavily researched. It has been declared evidenced-based as one of the most effective treatment modalities for PTSD by the various mental health professional associations along with the Defense Department and the Rand Corporation. Despite its great success, there is still uncertainty about its mechanism of action. 

Dr. Kaye will present a psychophysiological model for treating trauma that is both compatible with EMDR, yet is more inclusive. EMDR techniques can be used combined with other techniques if one is guided by certain psychophysiological principles. Dr. Kaye will outline 6 principles that can guide a more artistic blend of techniques than a mere protocol.


Topics to be discussed will include:

  • The new neuroscience of memory consolidation and what it means for psychotherapy
  • The strategy of "super-resourcing" by training a patient to combine resource memories
  • The use of "therapeutic dissociation" to stimulate reorganization of memory
  • The use of somatic mismatch as a powerful new interweave technique
  • The use of EMDR with ego-state therapy
  • Various forms of interweave to by-pass "looping"

Presenter Bio: Dr. Bryce Kaye is a psychologist with 40 years of experience in both clinical research and practice. He currently is the Director of Cary Counseling Center in Cary, NC. Dr. Kaye is certified in EMDR and has over 18 years of experience using EMDR with the adult population. He has participated on the EMDR Research Committee and has published on the psychophysiology of EMDR therapy in the EMDR Journal. For the past 18 years, Dr. Kaye has independently studied various strategies to enhance EMDR effectiveness. He has observed physiological measures while utilizing EMDR and has combined EMDR with trans-cranial electrical stimulation of the brain. He has also cross-trained in various disciplines such as Ego State Therapy and Somatic Experiencing. Dr. Kaye authored his book on relationship dynamics The Marriage First Aid Kit in 2008 and designed several treatment protocols for couples therapy based on psychophysiology. He has done the same for trauma treatment by designing strategies that utilize the emerging neuroscience of memory reconsolidation. 

Dr. Kaye is a graduate of Columbia University and obtained his license in 1979 after receiving his master's and doctorate from the University of Illinois. He completed his psychological internship at the Phoenix Veterans Administration Hospital in 1976. From 1977 through 1983, he was the Director of Outpatient Services for Wake County Alcoholism Treatment Center. While there, he authored and directed a federal research grant that developed the outpatient program. In 1984, Dr. Bryce Kaye started Cary Counseling Center, which later became incorporated under the name Allied Psychological Services. Dr. Kaye and his wife Helen started their latest venture called Love Odyssey Charters in 2010. He and his wife live part-time on their pilothouse sailboat in Oriental Harbor overlooking the Neuse River. They offer a marriage intervention counseling retreat that takes place aboard their sailboat. Couples are sailed to different river towns around the Pamlico Sound where they stay in quaint B & B's. The Kaye's sailboat acts as their office where the couples counseling takes place.
