EMDR has helped thousands of clients rewire their brain for health and recover from traumatic events. This course builds on basic skill-building EMDR courses, teaching clinicians how to work with complex trauma utilizing EMDR. While the original 8-phase model of EMDR can be very helpful to traumatized clients who have suffered single-incident trauma, several modifications and additional techniques are recommended for those with a history of complex trauma. This workshop builds on the original 8-phase model, teaching clinicians attachment-focused EMDR skills that can help even the most traumatized clients.
a). Name two ways attachment-focused EMDR differs from the original 8-phase model.
b). Identify and practice at least three attachment-focused EMDR techniques.
c). Define and describe how to incorporate interweaves.
d). State how clinicians can incorporate “distancing techniques” when helping clients engage with overwhelming material.
e). Describe the importance of resourcing and identify two resourcing techniques.
f). Name one technique that can help clients build positive neural networks that might not currently exist.
