The Institute for Creative Mindfulness training program and approach is distinctively different because of our willingness to openly and candidly address both dissociation and addiction throughout the training process. Founder Dr. Jamie Marich is in long-term recovery from both addiction and a clinically significant dissociative disorder and has been very open about her journey. Dr. Jamie is currently working on a model with ICM team member Adam O'Brien making a case for the inextricable link between dissociation and addiction and that addiction can be conceptualized as dissociation. All Institute for Creative Mindfulness team members are selected for their sensitivity to address complex trauma and the intricacies of working with both dissociation and addiction. On this page, we've gathered some of our best resources in the area of articles, videos, and interviews to help our own trainees and all EMDR therapists.
