VIDEO: EMDR Teletherapy

Answers to Questions about EMDR in a Time of Crisis & Hope

EMDR teletherapy—is that even a possibility? Many of the trainees and therapists I work with were concerned as the pandemic changed the way we safely engage with our clients. Some had specific questions about how to do processing in an EMDR teletherapy session. Others asked how to adapt protocol and procedures for teletherapy. Many were concerned about clients who suffer from complex trauma and attachment disorders. Are they more fragile or vulnerable during this time?  How do we help them when they no longer have the sense of safety of our physical office space or the comfort of our regulating presence?

In this mini-tutorial, I answer questions and point out new opportunities for growth and healing. The insights in this 12-minute mini-tutorial come from first-hand clinical experience—my own and that of other therapists. I hope you find this video helpful. Please let me know.
