6 EMDRIA Credits
This online course will explore the safe use of EMDR with children. It will use the AIP model as a lens to understand how early attachment impacts children’s perceptions of the world and their ability to regulate and modulate stress. Specific techniques for assisting children with expanding and remaining in their window of tolerance will be discussed, with attention given to how shame, idealization, and dissociative parts can be addressed. Step-by-step methods and modifications for guiding children through steps 3 through 8 of the EMDR process will be discussed, considering developmental stage and individual needs of the child, as well as how to address pre-verbal or implicitly stored memories.
