Approved for 38 EMDRIA Credits

During this in-person workshop (February 20-24, 2023) you will learn to work with adults (parents) and children using systemic-attachment-informed EMDR therapy.  You will learn an original model developed by Ana Gomez to work with parents and children that include four different levels of parental involvement:Level 1- Psychoeducation & safety, Level 2- Emotion regulation and mentalization work, Level 3- Processing, and Level 4-Dyadic work. You will learn how to work with parents with dismissing, preoccupied and unresolved states of mind throughout the eight phases with parents. In addition, you will learn how to help parents develop attunement so the capacity to “hold the child’s mind in mind” can be promoted. Case conceptualization strategies and Preparation tools that include protocols to enhance the parent’s capacity for differentiation and boundary awareness as well as linkage and connection will be addressed. The use of videos to promote the development of attunement and the capacity of the parent to synchronize to the child’s internal states will be studied. In addition, the use of playful strategies and the installation of dyadic-regulated states (Gomez) with the child and the parent will be demonstrated. Moreover, how to resource the “parent’s younger self” and “the child’s little self” will be covered. A wide range of interventions and interweaves will be presented and thoroughly practiced under the supervision of Ana Gomez.
