From Specialized Technique to Broad-based Treatment Approach
While EMDR is best known for its highly effective approach to trauma, it’s also developed into a comprehensive psychotherapy approach used to treat a broad spectrum of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and a wide range of emotional difficulties. In this workshop, you’ll discover how to integrate the therapeutic use of the self with the power of EMDR to bring the past into present day awareness. You’ll discover how to:
- Bring into conscious awareness and treat the earlier life experiences that inform the client’s current difficulties
- Follow the linkages among clients’ experiences as they unfold moment-to-moment in the session
- Clarify clients’ confusions about personal agency and misattributions of appropriate responsibility in the past
