EMDRIA member Rebecca Kase, LCSW lent her expertise about EMDR therapy and yoga to a recent U.S. News & World Report article, “How Yoga Can Help Manage Pain and Trauma.” “It’s a different kind of therapy,” Kase says. “It’s not talk-therapy focused. EMDR asserts that most of our symptoms that we come to counseling for are the result of maladaptively stored memories. Think about something that has gotten stuck and it’s causing you yuck.”
Deany Laliotis, LICSW, EMDRIA member, writes about using a relational approach in EMDR therapy to help her clients in this Pyschotherapy Networker article “Relational EMDR Therapy.” Laliotis states: “The relational way I worked with Maryanne wasn’t novel, but I hoped that by weaving it into the EMDR protocol, I could help her not only heal old attachment wounds, but also develop the capacity to be in a secure attachment relationship. I learned from her, and other clients like her, that being an expert in your method, be it EMDR or anything else, is only one part of our work. The other part of it is how we show up as an interested, attentive, empathic other, who creates the conditions that make it possible for clients to do what they haven’t been able to do on their own.”
EMDRIA member Janell McGruder, LCPC shared her knowledge of EMDR therapy in an interview on Paula Sands Live on KWQC News. McGruder states “We believe as EMDR therapists that the brain knows what it needs to do to heal, we just need to get out of the way.”
Jason N. Linder, Psy.D., EMDRIA member, recently published an article on Psychology Today, “The Unique Integrative Aspects of EMDR” discussing how EMDR therapy integrates many other psychotherapies and extracts benefits from all. Among his cited references, he used EMDRIA’s Let’s Talk EMDR Podcast episode #11 on EMDR Therapy and Dissociative Disorders with Dr. Jamie Marich.
River Falls Journal recently interviewed EMDRIA member Cori Hildebrandt, MA, LPC, LPCC, in an article titled, “Treating Trauma: How EMDR and Brainspotting Are Impacting Psychotherapy.” Hildebrandt mentions EMDR Phase 4, calling out that “reprocessing the memory from a traumatic event allows the client to integrate the experience in an adaptive way and heal.”
