This advanced workshop is for EMDR trained clinicians. EMDR can be integrated into the comprehensive treatment of health related problems by processing obstacles that may be complicating healing, such as traumas related to early abuse, past and current difficult medical treatment, chronic illness, pain and other somatic issues. The intertwined effects of these problems on mental health will be explored. The utilization of EMDR for adaptive resolution of health issues will be provided through lecture, demonstration, case examples, and practice sessions. This work also appears to strengthen the client’s effectiveness as a pro-active health consumer. Research indicates that many who have PTSD and adverse early childhood experiences will have even more severe health problems than the general population. Large numbers of our clients experience problems with health, illness, and pain. In addition, they have to cope with associated negative effects of these problems in many life realms. Chronic pain and untreated illness plus the addition of other life stresses can have negative effects on mental health and general functioning. Not surprisingly, many of our clients do not disclose their problems with chronic health problems and pain, nor do they realize that improved health can be a goal of EMDR and psychotherapy treatment The sequelae of childhood abuse and neglect affect the current health of the survivor in many areas. Their need for mental health care to learn to deal with these problems is only recently being recognized. EMDR treatment is well suited to alleviate and even eliminate certain health problems for our clients and thus improve the quality of life.


After completing this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Participant can apply strategies and methods for enhancing the utilization of the 8 phased EMDR protocol to successfully treat problems such as stress related illness, trauma related injury and pain, avoidance of health care, somatoform disorders, medically unexplained symptoms (MUS), gastro intestinal problems, problems related to pregnancy, and chronic pain.
  • Participant can apply theoretical and practical strategies to assist clinicians working with a varied client population dealing with the related complexities of illness, pain and chronic medical problems as well as functioning as a skilled consumer of healthcare.
  • Participant can identify strategies designed to aid those clients with complex PTSD and dissociative symptoms as well as for those whose health problems stem from early trauma rather than current illness or injury.
  • Participant can employ EMDR with adjunctive approaches such as ego state therapy, somatic interventions and other strategies.
