Approved for 6 EMDRIA Credits
EMDR therapists practicing in health and forensic fields are frequently confronted with anger problems; some clients may suffer from suppressed, inaccessible anger, others may present with an intimidating, aggressive attitude (as seen in some veterans), clients in a high conflict divorce and some complex trauma clients. Invariably, the externalizing attitude of a client is seen as an annoying process-disturbing phenomenon that can severely block regular EMDR therapy, leaving everybody powerless and frustrated. This live webinar explores a new EMDR-protocol that takes anger as starting point in therapy, and sees it as an opportunity to heal, making use of (1) the Adaptive Information Processing model of Francine Shapiro – which encompasses a trauma perspective on anger – and Bilateral Stimulation, (2) a sensorimotor approach (Pat Ogden) and (3) the concept of reciprocity.
