Several contemporary and classic psychotherapy modalities utilize eye movements and eye placements to help clients desensitize to, and process, distressing memories and thoughts. These techniques, which are often straightforward and easy to implement, are nonetheless underutilized by therapists, as few trainings teach these strategies in isolation. Attend this workshop, and you will learn several practical, eye-based desensitization and processing skills that can immediately be integrated with almost any therapy approach!
This training will provide participants clinical knowledge and tools to:
a). Name and practice at least two eye placement techniques that can facilitate desensitization and processing of distressing material.
b). Name and practice at least two eye movement techniques that can facilitate desensitization and processing of distressing material.
c). Describe two limbic areas of the brain involved in desensitization.
The target audience for this event includes psychologists, social workers, counselors, MFT’s, and other clinical mental health professionals.
