10 Years of EMDR Essentials and Beyond

It’s been 10 years since I wrote EMDR Essentials: A Guide for Clients and Therapists, and I can hardly believe what has happened since then. I wrote this book because I kept hearing from therapists that they didn’t know how to explain EMDR therapy to their clients and felt there wasn’t anything good that they could give to clients to help them understand this powerful modality. I resisted writing this book wondering if I had anything to say, but something inside me said you just have to do it. What a learning process that was for me. But the thing that touched me the most is that when I approached my clients to share their stories for the book, they gladly offered their experiences to share so that others could relate to what they experienced and how they got help and felt real change.

UpcomingSomatic EMDR Tools for Attachment Trauma – Somatic EMDR Workshop in Boulder, Colorado – November 16-17, 2019

Somatic EMDR Tools for Attachment Trauma - Somatic EMDR Workshop in Boulder, Colorado - November 16-17, 2019

Somatic EMDR Tools for Attachment Trauma – Somatic EMDR Workshop in Boulder, Colorado – November 16, 2019 (Saturday) to November 17, 2019 (Sunday) – This two-day Somatic EMDR Workshop — taught by Barb Maiberger and Dr. Arielle Schwartz, authors of “EMDR Therapy and Somatic Psychology: Interventions to Enhance Embodiment” — is designed to help EMDR therapists learn an integrative approach in working with Attachment trauma. Therapists learning EMDR therapy are not trained to work with attachment trauma in their initial training and the impact it has on the body and mind. Clients who experience preverbal memories can feel overwhelmed which can shut down reprocessing through dissociation and a disconnect from the body. Learning how to work with preverbal memories by incorporating somatic skills is an essential for all EMDR therapists who want to help their clients heal at a profound core level. Without effective treatment, attachment trauma can be passed onto the next generation. This work can help clients broaden their capacity to have healthy interpersonal relationships that can be fostered in the world.

Somatic EMDR Tools for Grief and Loss - Somatic EMDR Workshop in Boulder, Colorado - October 19-20, 2019

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.

Somatic EMDR Tools for Chronic Pain and Illness – Somatic EMDR Workshop in Boulder, Colorado – July 27, 2019 (Saturday) to July 28, 2019 (Sunday) – This two-day Somatic EMDR Workshop — taught by Barb Maiberger and Dr. Arielle Schwartz, authors of “EMDR Therapy and Somatic Psychology: Interventions to Enhance Embodiment” — is designed to help EMDR therapists navigate the complexity of working with clients who are experiencing chronic pain or illness. Clients who are in physical and emotional pain may struggle to connect to their bodies and want to escape sensations. This disconnect can make treatment difficult for EMDR therapy to be effective. Research now shows that physical pain can be linked to unresolved PTSD from childhood trauma. Understanding how to work with the underlying trauma, as well as the actual physical sensations with EMDR therapy is essential in working with this population. Our integrative approach helps clients feel more connected to their bodies, increasing their ability to relate to their pain with more compassion and feel at choice with their responses.

Somatic EMDR Tools for Complex PTSD – Somatic EMDR Workshop – Boulder, Colorado – June 29, 2019 (Saturday) to June 30, 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 understand the unique importance of EMDR readiness when working with Complex PTSD. Over the years, we have witnessed therapists struggling to resource their clients with “Safe Place” which is an essential skill for EMDR therapy. Clients who have experienced neglect, abandonment, abuse in their early stages of development may have a limited capacity to tolerate emotions and body sensations. Trying to apply the EMDR therapy trauma protocol with clients with Complex PTSD too soon can lead clients to dissociate, shut down treatment and never want to do EMDR therapy ever again. Slowing down the preparation phase and integrating creative multifaceted approaches is key to implementing EMDR therapy successfully with Complex PTSD. Somatic and other sensory resourcing tools are explored to help clients feel more in control allowing them to deepen their connection to the body while staying present in a safe way. When clients develop a better sense of control around their distress, treatment can proceed in a gentler way.

Somatic EMDR Tools for Addictions – Somatic EMDR Workshop in Boulder, Colorado – April 6, 2019 (Saturday) to April 7, 2019 (Sunday) – Maiberger Institute – EMDR Therapy Trainers: Barb Maiberger, MA, LPC and John Gray, MA, LPC, CACIII – This two-day EMDRIA approved Somatic EMDR Workshop — taught by Barb Maiberger, MA, LPC and John Gray, MA, LPC, CACIII — focuses on how to prepare clients who are struggling with addictions for successful EMDR therapy trauma reprocessing. Over the years, we have observed EMDR therapists feeling pressure to get fast results in working with addictions which can lead to more relapses. Part of the addiction process is to run away from feeling the body by escaping into the “high” from the addiction. This disconnect from the body can make trauma reprocessing difficult and too scary for the client. Slowing down the preparation phase is the key to developing the necessary skills for the clients to relate to their feelings and body sensations. Our unique somatic tools are designed to help clients learn to tolerate feelings and sensations, build confidence and skills, and feel safe enough to move forward with trauma reprocessing for successful EMDR therapy.
