Approved for 3 EMDRIA Credits
In this training, we explore PLAYful EMDR applications of the Polyvagal Theory. Participants deepen their understanding of the 3 states of the autonomic nervous system, co-regulation, and neuroception. Together, we experientially learn practical methods of increasing safety and connection throughout all 8 phases of EMDR Therapy with children and adolescents, with an emphasis on Phase: 1 History Taking and Conceptualization and Phase 2: Preparation. Participants learn PLAY therapy applications of Dr. Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal theory to strengthen the therapeutic relationship, increase clients’ capacity to manage stress, and to maintain a sense of emotional equilibrium throughout the process. This training involves movement, nature, and interaction with others. This event will be simultaneously live streamed.
