Session S2: Practical EMDR Techniques, Tools, and Strategies for Working with Complex Trauma Cases

Saturday, April 20th


About the Session

Many EMDR therapists struggle when it comes to applying the Standard Protocol with some Complex Trauma cases. Some of the difficulties are related to deciding how to proceed with trauma work when cases do not seem stable enough. EMDR therapy is a flexible approach that allows for creativity in the therapeutic work. The work with traumatic memories may be implemented safely from the early stages of therapy, if we can identify possible indicators of readiness and blocks in each client. This workshop will illustrate specific micro-processing techniques that both increase client stabilization and allow working with traumatic memories safely. Three challenging clinical cases will be presented with videos to integrate the comprehension and applicability of the interventions described.
