EMDR Therapy Tools for Attachment Trauma

This two-day EMDR Advanced Workshop applies EMDR Therapy Tools for working with Attachment Trauma with adults. Lectures include the neurobiology of Attachment, Attachment Styles, how to identify targets and work with these early developmental challenges in all 8 Phases of EMDR Therapy. Questionnaires and tools will be taught and practiced for History Taking to assess specific attachment related cognitions and possible targets for the early developmental stages. RDI interventions will be used to stabilize the client in Preparation Phase for EMDR Therapy by identifying ego states (parts), resourcing the parts, as well as, helping build safety for the client through relational resourcing. Case conceptualization will include how to identify nonverbal trauma and scripts on how to set up targets related to attachment wounding. Interweaves for psychobiological regulation will be explored during the Desensitization Phase to address stuck processing along and attend to shame if it arises during this phase of treatment. Interventions on how to shut down incomplete sessions will also be discussed. There will be didactic and experiential exercises for therapists with an emphasis on body-centered applications that therapists can immediately put into their practice as well as an opportunity for in depth case discussion.
