EMDR Therapy Tools for Chronic Pain and Illness

  • EMDR Advanced Workshop
  • Boulder, Colorado
  • October 28, 2017 to October 29, 2017

This two-day EMDRIA Approved EMDR Advanced Workshop applies EMDR Therapy to working with Chronic Pain and Illness. Therapists will learn about the relationship between childhood trauma and chronic illness (ACE study) and how to assess for related EMDR targets with clients. This course will review the neuroscience that underlies stress, chronic PTSD and illness. Experiential exercises will be explored for building affect tolerance through resource development installation and desensitizing targets related to pain and illness. Therapists will be introduced to body centered interventions including trauma sensitive yoga as integrated with EMDR Therapy. The weekend will include time for case discussion and application.
