In this article from the Spring 2022 issue of Go With That magazine, Jennifer Marchand, MA, CCC, EMDRIA Approved Consultant presents one method she developed as a culturally responsive approach to EMDR using the creative arts therapy, the Transformative Journey Storytelling Method (TJSM). This embodied storytelling method invites the client’s personal and cultural strengths into EMDR preparation. As clients are guided through each step of the Transformative Journey, they develop metaphors, imagery, and symbols that become a source of strength and meaning for them, enhanced and installed to increase readiness for reprocessing.
