2 EMDRIA Credits
This online course demonstrates the use of EMDR therapy with metaphors. Taken from the presenter’s past experience in Psychodrama, sleep metaphors are presented to clients in order to help them process what keeps them awake during periods of insomnia. Here you will meet the Night Watchman (who has often gone off track), Ghosts who visit us in the middle of the night and other roles who keep us from sleeping. This strategy is often integrated with the Adult Drawing Protocol. Included is the use of metaphors and exercises for a future Template to improve sleep prognosis, taken from the Dream Protocol developed by Esly Carvalho, Ph.D.
