Event description
Learn about the adapted EMDR child protocol and how to use it to enhance your work with adults traumatised as children

About this Event

When working with adults who have been traumatized as children, the trauma may be encoded at the age at which the client was at the time of the experience. this can result in regressions in emotional age and presentation within the therapy session (and desensitization phase of EMDR) itself.

Although continuing to process can shift can shift regressions, often a change in Language and attunement is required. This is where the use of the child modifications in EMDR may be helpful in order to facilitate and support the emotional shift in the client as they work through the childhood trauma.

when working with complex clients where child-parts have dissociated from the Apparently Normal Personality, the use of the EMDR child modifications may be helpful for adapting to the emotional age of the client at different stages and phases of their treatment.

A full understanding of parts and regressions from an Adaptive Information Processing perspective will be provided alongside the EMDR Child Modifications for those wanting to use these adaptions for adult clients who have experienced childhood trauma.

The use of clinical material and video material will be used to demonstrate the use of child modifications with adult clients. Resources more suitable for younger clients will also be shared.
