The neurobiology of attachment and trauma has resulted in the recent emergence of somatic interventions for treating trauma. This workshop will frame Porges’ polyvagal theory, Schore’s right hemisphere and developmental postulates within the neural network understand of the Adaptive Information Process theory that underlies EMDR; introduce several key somatic interventions including somatic resources, tracking, discharging, pendulation, micro-movements, and boundaries, with a framework of somatic empathy (Stanley, 2006), and 3) identify where the eight-step process of EMDRIA specific somatic elements can be utilized while maintaining the integrity of EMDR.
