Can recent neurobiological findings inform EMDR treatment? Is the unconscious/implicit mind important? Research has evidenced how the human brain develops in the context of somatosensory stimulation and relational inter-subjectivity. This data charges us to become more, fluent, and clinically comfortable with the right hemispheric somatosensorial language of our patients and ourselves. This seminar—presented by Uri Bergmann, Ph.D—will integrate the data regarding the Default Mode Network and the Mirror Neuron System to illustrate the implications of this material with respect to current EMDR treatment; with a specific focus on the expanded utilization of the body scan to render it more robust.
- Participants will be able to describe the neural (maturational) and psychological (developmental) stages of human development with respect to human attachment.
- Participants will be able to discuss and explain the function and mediation of the Default Mode Network (DMN).
- Participants will be able to discuss and explain the function and mediation of the Mirror Neuron System (MNS).
- Participants will be able to incorporate and integrate the clinical implications of this material into their EMDR practice.
