Live Webcast - Also available: Event  3


Spend two days in advanced training with Dr Laurel Parnell, a master therapist and one of the world's leading experts in EMDR. Time spent with Dr Parnell is always interactive and engaging.  In this very practical workshop, she will show video recordings of a total of four complete therapy sessions that demonstrate various ways to integrate the use of attachment theory, EMDR, Resource Tapping, and other techniques into an alliance-based approach to permanent healing.

Clients who have experienced childhood traumas that have impacted their sense of safety and capacity to form close emotional relationships in adulthood require adjustments to the EMDR phases and procedural steps. These relational traumas can include childhood physical or sexual abuse, neglect, early losses, birth trauma, medical trauma, caregiver disconnection and vicarious trauma. In order for you as an EMDR therapist to be most successful with this population, it is important to incorporate an attachment repair orientation into the therapy. Through lecture, case examples and video clips you will learn how an attachment-repair orientation can be integrated into all phases of EMDR treatment.

Based in part on material from her newest book, Attachment-Focused EMDR: Healing Relational Trauma (in press), this workshop presents practical information and encourages the creative use of EMDR with these clients. EMDR therapists need a specific and advanced understanding of the EMDR method--as well as additional skills-- to use EMDR to complete treatment successfully. In this workshop the overall course of treatment with EMDR is outlined, but specific areas are focused on in more detail.
