Approved for 6 EMDRIA Credits
Through lecture, PowerPoint slides and videos of live client sessions, participants will learn a holistic, integrative approach to the treatment of addictions and dysfunctional behaviors that is brain-wise, resource-based, trauma-informed, and attachment-focused. According to research, the addictive process is an interaction of impairments in three functional systems: motivation-reward, affect regulation, and behavioral inhibition. When we can focus our treatment in these three areas, using EMDR-related techniques to help support motivation, increase affect regulation, and increase control over dysfunctional behaviors we may be better able to break the addiction cycle, and support our clients in a life free of addictions. This live webinar workshop addresses these areas integrating methods from Attachment-Focused EMDR, Resource Tapping and the Connecting the Consequences Protocol.
