Approved for 19 EMDRIA Credits

This workshop takes place over 4 days (January 23-26, 2023). Child and adolescent therapists find it challenging to integrate EMDR therapy with these complex cases and are often at loss when treating attachment wounds and managing dissociative symptoms. These child clients need trauma therapy, and therapists will need to use both the therapeutic powers of play therapy and EMDR therapy to intervene in a developmentally sensitive way. This course focuses on the treatment of complex cases including: foster care, multiple placements, adoption, out of country adoption, early medical trauma, early losses of caregiver, drug addicted parents and being raised by grandparents. The instructors will focus on developing an in-depth case formulation and plan, using play therapy techniques and modalities to support EMDR and move a child with a fractured sense of self towards functioning at home, school and in the community.

Presenters: Annie Monaco, LCSW & Ann Beckley-Forest, LCSW
