Susan Brown- Breaking the Cycle of Trauma, Addiction, and Other Compulsive Behaviors: An Integrative EMDR Therapy Approach

credit limit =
total earned credit = +
LIne number 868,packageID= 9001

This advanced workshop is for EMDR clinicians who want to develop their skills working with trauma, substance use disorder, and other compulsive behaviors. Key components from several modified addiction approaches (DeTUR, FSAP, Addiction Memory, Idealized Positive Affect and Avoidance) are synthesized and taught as an “integrative” model that includes: case conceptualization, safe preparation, timing, target selection, and relapse prevention within a trauma-informed framework.

Guided by current research and the principles of Adaptive Information Processing, this workshop employs lecture, discussion, video examples, and experiential practice to identify and process both negative and positive addiction-specific targets to break the cycle of trauma and “cue-driven” relapse. Participants will learn how EMDR therapy, as a memory-based approach, can address these highly treatment-resistant behaviors and facilitate a resetting of the neural circuitry where life’s focus shifts from simply surviving—to thriving. Join us for this 2 day event and learn how to work with your clients to systematically untangle the web of addiction and create a life worth staying sober for.
