This is a practical workshop that is rich with creative interventions, inspiring cases, and numerous videos that will allow you to leave the workshop prepared to:

  • Involve parents in “detective work” to understand child behaviors from the AIP trauma model.
  • Facilitate the development of self-awareness and self-regulation skills in children.
  • Process preverbal trauma with EMDR through the therapeutic story.
  • Help parents attune and respond with sensitivity to the emotions and traumatic memories underlying the child’s behaviors.
  • Implement EMDR Attachment Resource Development (ARD) to enhance parent-child attachment prior to memory work.
  • Apply EMDR Self Regulation Development and Installation (SRDI) to increase affect and behavioral regulation.
  • Utilize EMDR empowerment interweaves and other creative interweaves for children with stuck brains.
  • Use puppets, plays and stories to help children process the past with EMDR.
  • Heal and find safety for the “inner child within the child.”
  • Use EMDR with role plays to process current triggers and develop future templates.
  • Learn to develop collaborative relationships with colleagues to create an effective family-EMDR treatment team.Objectives:
    1. Identify an EMDR treatment plan for a child with a history of attachment trauma.
    2. Identify an EMDR resource development method to increase the sense of attachment security between parent and child.
    3. Identify an EMDR resource development method to increase the child’s ability to regulate emotions.
    4. Recall a rationale for keeping parents present during EMDR trauma work.
    5. Identify 3 common obstacles to reprocessing during the desensitization for children suffering from attachment trauma.
    6. Recall 3 “empowerment interweaves” for a child stuck in feelings of powerlessness.
    7. Identify a rationale for the utilization of puppets, plays, stories, or drawings to target a small piece of the child’s traumatic past.
    8. Identify a strategy for implementing future template with children who are concrete, hands-on learners.
