The 2012 EMDRIA Conference is open for registration and the theme will be “EMDR & Attachment: Healing Developmental Trauma”. It will be held Oct. 4 – 7, 2012 in Washington, D.C. It is a great opportunity to learn more about EMDR and network with fellow EMDR therapists from around the world. Over 800 therapists come to participate and the event will be held at the Crystal Gateway Marriott.
One of the speakers will be Dr. Stephen Porges. His work describes the importance of the polyvagal theory. This autonomic part of the nervous system contraols the heart and the face influencing emotions, gestures and communication. Dr. Rachel Yehuda will be speaking on who develops PTSD after trauma and who recovers from trauma-related symptoms but remain at risk for more symptoms. Dr Colin Ross, MD, will be presenting material on the links between trauma, dissociation and attachment. Dr. Francine Shapiro will be speaking on the AIP model of EMDR and the latest research, in addition to clinical cases. This is just a small sampling of who will be presenting this year.
