Approved for 6 EMDRIA Credits
Generally defined as the use of God or religion as tools to gain power and control by the abuser, spiritual abuse is one of the most overlooked forms of abuse in clinical settings. In this workshop, special consideration is paid to how spiritual abuse can be described as a trauma framed by the AIP model within EMDR therapy. Specific targeting sequences using negatively charged spiritual cognitions as access points to Phases 3-6 are reviewed.
