Approved for 7 EMDRIA Credits
One out of four American girls and one out of six boys experience some form of sexual abuse, that can range from a one-time fondling to years of being sexually trafficked. The more the abuse, the more likely the client will have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other forms of dissociation. This workshop explains the prevalence and effects of sexual abuse on children and the adults that they become. Participants will be able to assess clients’ abuse histories and the effects, including dissociation, that it had. They will be able to talk effectively with different kinds of clients about their abuse histories and assess client therapy needs that are consistent with EMDR therapy and Ego State therapy. Participants will learn strategies to help clients establish a sense of safety in present time, to find freedom from flashbacks, distressing emotions, old sensations, and outdated senses of self in order to live, completely, in the present. Participants will know how to help their clients understand healthy sexuality, teach them how to talk about sex, and navigate a current, happy consensual relationship with a good partner.
