EMDR therapy with kids most often addresses traumatic memories. But many other issues can be appropriate targets once they are revealed. With creative sleuthing, you may uncover issues and help kids define what’s bothering them; thus broadening your use of EMDR.
Contemporary problems for the i-Generation have emerged from internet access and social media. Handy tools using i-Technology to connect with kids and enhance different phases of EMDR work, will be demonstrated with video segments.
The overall goal is to enrich your EMDR skills to effectively engage and treat this electronically driven generation, without compromising the established standardized protocol.
Lecture, videos, power point and clinical material will provide an opportunity to ‘see how it is done’.
