The 2018 EMDRIA Conference is being held in Atlanta, Georgia on Oct. 4 – 7, 2018. Attending the EMDRIA Conference is a great way for EMDR Therapists to learn from different presenters on special situations and populations.

For therapists interested in learning more about this year’s EMDRIA Conference presenters, below is a list of books some of the presenters have written that may help therapists get more insight into trauma and EMDR Therapy:

2018 EMDRIA Conference - Session 236 - Arielle Schwartz and Barb Maiberger - EMDR Therapy and Somatic PsychologySpeaking of EMDR Therapy Books, at this year’s EMDRIA Conference, Dr. Arielle Schwartz and Barb Maiberger will be presenting “EMDR Therapy and Somatic Psychology: Interventions to Enhance Embodiment” (Session 236 – Oct. 5, Friday), which is based on their new book.

This presentation is an introduction to Somatic Psychology and how it interfaces with EMDR Therapy. Somatic Psychology studies the relationship between the body and psychological states by highlighting physiological patterns as a primary foundation of human behavior. Therapists will learn a brief history of somatic psychology and the basic principles that are the foundations of body centered therapies. You will learn about the physiology of the nervous system and how somatic interventions directly influence nervous system regulation. These advanced tools will help clients work through stuck processing by helping them build affect and sensation tolerance.

If you can’t make it to Atlanta, this session will be streamed through the internet live where you can earn EMDRIA credits.

We hope these resources are useful to you, and we look forward to connecting with you at the 2018 EMDRIA Conference.
