Webinar Description

This webinar is intended for EMDR therapists who work with children and/or adults.

Arianne Struik has been using EMDR with infants, children and adults for twenty years and she will share her experiences in this webinar.

How can understanding the steps from the basic EMDR protocol be helpful in processing preverbal trauma in clients?

To process traumatic memories with the EMDR basic protocol clients need to be able to tell you about their experiences. However, clients can also experience traumatizing situations at a very young age, such as abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, neglect but also painful medical procedures during birth or their early years, hospitalization, accidents. Those traumatizing experiences are then stored in a different way and can be expressed in physical and sensory sensations, feelings, sounds, smells or images. When these experiences cannot be consciously recalled and verbalized, this is called preverbal trauma.

Also, clients with an intellectual disability, who function at a lower developmental level, can store trauma preverbally.

Clients who experienced preverbal trauma can display symptoms, such as anger, oppositional behavior, depression, emptiness, anxiety and hypervigilance, pain, sexualized behavior, and dissociation. Young children and infants can have problems with sleeping or eating and/or their attachment can be disturbed.

These symptoms can be related to those preverbal experiences and when that is suspected, those experiences need to be processed in order to overcome those symptoms. In 1999 Joan Lovett developed the Storytelling protocol to access and process these preverbal memories with EMDR. Over the years Storytelling has been widely used and further developed.

During this webinar, Arianne Struik will discuss topics such as:

What is known about preverbal trauma and about the use of EMDR?

What is the impact of preverbal trauma on children and adults?

How to decide whether to use EMDR for preverbal traumatic memories and deal with dilemmas?

What are the prerequisites for this treatment?

How to structure the sessions, who is present?

How can EMDR be used with very young children and infants with preverbal trauma and how can parents become co-therapists?

How to assess if an adult client's symptoms are the result of preverbal trauma?

How to choose a target and process chronic preverbal trauma?

How to develop the narrative and what if it is unclear what the client has experienced?

Which form of bilateral stimulation can be used?

How to assess if the preverbal trauma is activated and if the somatic experience has been accessed, what to expect?

What to do when clients have strong (somatic) abreactions or dissociate?

How often is the same narrative used?

How can understanding the steps from the basic EMDR protocol be helpful in processing preverbal trauma in clients?

Can this be done online?

This webinar is an interactive presentation and participants are encouraged to ask questions and share topics for discussion.
