Somatic EMDR Tools for Grief and Loss – Somatic EMDR Workshop in Boulder, Colorado – October 19, 2019 (Saturday) to October 20, 2019 (Sunday) – Maiberger Institute – EMDR Therapy Trainers: Barb Maiberger, MA, LPC and Katie Asmus, MA, LPC, BMP – This Somatic EMDR Workshop — taught by Barb Maiberger, MA, LPC and Katie Asmus, MA, LPC, BMP — is designed to help EMDR therapists learn how to work with grief and loss using EMDR therapy. We often hear EMDR therapists say that they can’t work with grief because clients are afraid that EMDR therapy will “take away” the grief and the connection to their loved one or meaningful situations. That is impossible! EMDR therapy cannot take a person’s grief away. What it does is help people process what is stuck and holding them back and causing tremendous pain. If losses are not processed they can lead to distressing symptoms and dysfunctional thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. Through consciously exploring the impact of loss, therapists will deepen their understanding of the complex factors contributing to the grief process. Our integrative approach helps clients move with and through their pain emotionally, physically and spiritually using somatic tools that will help clients feel more alive and present while still honoring the complexity of the loss.
