Approved for 5.5 EMDRIA Credits
In this engaging and interactive presentation, the presenters will explore the powerful integration of the Oaklander Model and EMDR therapy in child and adolescent counseling. Combining depth-oriented techniques with playful and interactive trauma healing, this approach allows access to reprocess traumatic material that may have been inaccessible. Spanning the non-directive/directive continuum, it facilitates deep work through playful experiences.
The Oaklander Model’s emphasis on contact functions allowing children to express what is “stuck” through emotions, body, emotions, and intellect makes EMDR accessible to their developing nervous system, fostering a safe therapeutic environment. Culturally considerate, clinicians remain curious about each child’s unique reality, enhancing safety and connection throughout the 8 phases. Demonstrating how the Oaklander Model deepens EMDR with creative tools like projective techniques, music, movement, arts, sandtray, and puppets, attendees witness powerful impacts on emotional expression, healing, and transformation.
