The Preparation Phase of EMDR therapy is critical for stabilizing clients who have attachment trauma: Clients need to begin to access, strengthen, and utilize the AIP through repair of the internal structure of enmeshed and cutoff parts, and develop an internal “Resource Team” to assist them in desensitizing present day triggers, guide them in the sequence and pacing of EMDR processing, and strengthen the installation of future templates.
Participants will learn to prepare clients for participating in EMDR trauma processing through:
- Safe Place installation with Adult and Child parts/ego states,
- Internal restructuring and resource development,
- Strengthening the competent adult state.
