Being in relationships with our clients is at the heart of what we do in treating developmental trauma. That means bringing our best selves to this work, which, at times, can be challenging when we are triggered by our clients’ reactions.
Are you ready to start reframing clinical challenges
like these as moments of opportunity for healing and growth
for you as well as for your client?
Then this Master Class is for you.
Clinical challenges like these have inspired me for the last 40 years. As an EMDR Evangelist, I’ve worked with leading clinicians and innovators in EMDR, trauma treatment and somatic healing to expand the understanding of EMDR as a comprehensive psychotherapy . As a therapist, I’ve refined the application of EMDR to enhance its effectiveness in repairing attachment injuries, resolving negative life patterns rooted in complex trauma and other challenging clinical cases. As a trainer and consultant, I’ve traveled throughout the US and around the world to help ensure that therapists everywhere have the understanding, skill and confidence they need to bring the transformative healing power of EMDR Psychotherapy to the clients they see.
This Advanced Training workshop is laser-focused on giving you everything you need to work effectively with attachment injuries and complex trauma. You’ll examine the most common issues arising from attachment injuries and developmental trauma and learn the secrets of adapting EMDR to that work. You’ll cover which approaches are most effective—and appropriate—based on a client’s attachment style and you’ll find out about predictable pitfalls and how to avoid them. You can start using what you learn in your clinical work right away.
In this workshop, we will discuss the different attachment styles and states of mind of the therapist; the pros and cons to each and ways of navigating the moment to moment demands in and out EMDR processing.
We will learn to recognize the hallmarks of a “good enough” attachment relationship with our clients and explore how that sets the groundwork for accessing and processing formative relational experiences—some of which are outside the domain of language and explicit memory networks.
Through lecture, discussion, videotape and a live demonstration, you will learn:
