Approved for 2 EMDRIA Credits
The story-making protocol (Gomez) can be a portal into memory networks harboring traumatic material in young children or in general, children that need a much closer companionship as they approach their stories of adversity. The Story-making method invites the active participation of the child in co-creating meaning and accessing the stories of trauma and adversity. It has multiple levels of involvement, titration and distance as well as rich and theoretically sound procedural steps. During this live webinar, EMDR clinicians will learn step by step how to move into processing phases with children that need the active involvement of the parent and the clinician whether it is because of their age, or their unique qualities. How to work with the parent to prepare the story prior to accessing the trauma directly with the child will be addressed. In addition, how to prepare to access the different levels of information processing, the cognitive, emotional and somatic as we co-create the story will be covered.
