In brief: Not a lot
Multiple dislocations can be caused by trauma or multi-directional instability.
Traumatic dislocations tear the labrum. It this case, it is unlikely that exercise will provide long term stability of the shoulder. Arthroscopic repair may be needed. If you have generally loose joints and the shoulder seems to slide in and out, strengthening the shoulder muscles that stabilize the scapula may help.
