    EMDR Therapy in the Treatment of Addictions

    This advanced training workshop showcases the healing that is possible when combining the frameworks of both Buddhist psychology and EMDR therapy to create a primary clinical practice rubric for those struggling from addiction and addictive behaviors.  Case studies and demonstration videos will be utilized to show how the MET(T)A Protocol – Mindfulness and EMDR Treatment Template for Agencies – can be utilized to create a trauma-focused environment to heal those within private practice and outpatient settings as well as residential treatment centers. Participants will be guided to understanding the importance of developing their own mindfulness practices within a MET(T)A Protocol trauma-focused paradigm, and the development and practice of personal mindfulness exercises will be encouraged. The workshop concludes with concrete examples of how treatment centers, outpatient clinics and private practices alike can utilize the scaffolding of the MET(T)A Protocol for assessment, treatment planning, and improved treatment outcomes.

    EMDR Therapy with Children and Adolescents

    Working with children & younger adolescents who have experienced early childhood trauma can be challenging. They don’t have explicit memory to share their experiences, but their brain and body have stored the memories in a dysfunctional neuro-network. Because this population uses play as their language, and toys as their words, use of EMDR must implement special strategies and techniques to assess and successfully treat them.

    This program will provide a comprehensive approach for treating children and younger teens with EMDR. It focuses on each phase of EMDR and provides step by step assessment and treatment considerations for this population. The program is augmented by many case reviews, video clips, and discussion. There will be special protocols shared for specific behaviors frequently found in treating this population.

    Dates for 2019:

    May 6-7, 2019 hosted by the Harding School of Theology, 1000 Cherry Rd, Memphis, TN.
