The Many Layers of EMDR
This 12 hour virtual distance learning program addresses using EMDR with an attachment and somatic focus.
This workshop shows how developmental attachment trauma is different than the treatment of PTSD trauma. We discuss specific ways to identify attachment patterns that are a result of the client adapting as a child in order to remain safe or stay attached. Those patterns, which are now the client’s strength, can also impede the EMDR therapy process as they appear when the client gets close to the root of the painful experiences, as a defense.
Specific skills to enhance therapist/client attunement are taught as well; how to track and contact the client’s present moment experience. Specific somatic resources are taught, along with working with the body as a cognitive interweave. We also address how to use somatic therapy techniques of probes and experiments to deepen the client’s experience in various phases of the EMDR process.
