Using EMDR Therapy with Children: Tools & Tricks November 4-5, 2022 (with Suzi Rutti, LISW-S & Tammy Moore, LISW-S)
This is a LIVE, interactive webinar taking place on November 4th and 5th, 2022.
This presentation will share strategies for adapting EMDR Therapy Standard Protocol for use with children who have experienced adverse life experiences. Adaptations to the 8-Phase Standard Protocol include completing comprehensive history taking, teaching specific preparation strategies, and integrating creative, child-focused interventions to implement during desensitization through re-evaluation phases. Specific strategies will include: psychoeducation about trauma response and EMDR therapy, preparation skills, attachment exercises, and art and play-based interventions. Using the tenets of the Adaptive Information Processing model, this workshop will explore strategies to identify and resolve unprocessed information that is dysfunctionally stored as a result of trauma.
