Live Webinar

Approved for 6 EMDRIA Credits

Client avoidance in EMDR, as in almost all therapies, is one of the most common therapist complaints. Whether it be a failure to follow through and complete agreed upon assignments, or an avoidance of issues and feelings during sessions, avoidance often makes providing effective treatment difficult, if not impossible. Yet it is important to acknowledge that clients are not the only ones who avoid the therapeutic relationship. Using the Float Forward with Float Back target assessment form (Browning, 1999) and incorporating the important work of Kahneman and Tversky on loss aversion, this live webinar will present a systematic process for practitioners to understand and gently confront both client and clinician avoidance. Participants will also create their own Future Template to address either their own and/or their clients’ avoidance.

Presenters: William Zangwill, Ph.D. & Elizabeth Armstrong, LCSW
