Many courses teach clinicians how to conduct EMDR with adults. However, very few seminars focus on EMDR modifications for children, leading some clinicians to feel hesitant about using these evidence-based skills with young clients who may greatly benefit from them! This three-hour seminar focuses on practical EMDR skills for the treatment of children, ages 3-15, who have experienced trauma or psychological injury. It assumes that attendees have completed general/basic EMDR training, and is tailored to clinicians who want to broaden and deepen their EMDR skill set in creative and effective ways. After completing this seminar, clinicians will be equipped to help children desensitize to and process distressing memories in a gentle, titrated manner that prioritizes resourcing.
