Harnessing a Broad-Based Approach to Change
While EMDR is best known for its treatment of trauma, it has developed into a comprehensive psychotherapy approach that treats a broad spectrum of presenting issues across various clinical populations. This workshop is for practitioners who are interested in learning more about this highly effective, evidence-based approach that can treat a wide range of problems from single traumatic events to relationship problems, self-esteem issues and complex trauma. We’ll explore how to:
- Identify nodal experiences that are shaping, not only client’s current symptoms, but their lives and identity
- Focus on the predominant themes in clients’ lives that underlie their current difficulties
- Integrate the adaptive information-processing model of EMDR with whatever model of therapy you’re currently using
