Approved for 15 EMDRIA Credits
When child and adolescent therapists complete training in EMDR therapy, they sometimes find it challenging to integrate EMDR into their current work. The presenters are using a variety of play therapy based techniques such as sand, art, and dolls to support EMDR therapy with children throughout the 8 phases to make the benefits of EMDR therapy possible with children and youth who may be avoidant or too young to fully engage with elements of the standard protocol. In addition, they will introduce play therapy principles and expressive play modalities for an enhanced preparation phase for children with fragmented or dissociative parts. They will expose participants to titration of trauma content in using EMDR with play-based trauma narratives using some video examples and discussion of how to respect the child’s movement towards and away from the trauma content. Case examples illustrating how to integrate parents into this work will be woven throughout the program. The event runs July 11-13, 2024.
Presenters: Ann Beckley-Forest & Annie Monaco
