Approved for 2 EMDRIA Credits
This live webinar will provide a framework to understand and work with self- and other-directed aggression and hostility in children within the eight phases of EMDR therapy. Portals and entry routes into hostile and aggressive parts that meet the needs of the child and their developmental capacities will be provided. How to utilize the magic that is at the center of being a child; the use of metaphors, play therapy, Sandtray and expressive arts strategies within the EMDR framework will be covered. How to join the child while providing the companionship, containment, co-regulation and co-organization of their experiences which provide the foundation for integration and healing to take place will be addressed. Parts work and tips on the labor that is often needed with hostile, critical and perpetrator-imitating parts will be covered as well as the systemic work that needs to accompany the treatment of such children.
