In this fabulous workshop, Ana will provide theoretical and practical step-by-step strategies to assist clinicians working with children with severe dysregulation of the affective system such as: Children exhibiting insecure patterns of attachment, complex PTSD and dissociative symptoms. She will teach EMDR Clinicians how to use EMDR therapy and attachment theory will be addressed. Strategies directed to titrate amount of trauma and keep children within manageable and tolerable levels of activation to facilitate reprocessing will be demonstrated. Playful strategies design to enhance the child’s capacities to tolerate positive and negative affect will be demonstrated. How to enhance the child’s ability to change state while at the same time expanding the child’s capacity to “stay with the state” will be covered. Advanced preparation strategies that include developing age appropriate understanding of boundaries as well as interoceptive awareness with insecurely attached and dissociative children will be covered. How to work with children with sensitized sympathetic and parasympathetic systems will be addressed as well as children with avoidant, disorganized and anxious attachment strategies. This training will provide creative and effective interweaves that access different levels of information processing: Cognitive, emotional and somatic. These interweaves are geared to promoting horizontal and vertical integration. In addition, interweaves directed to modulate arousal, stimulate mindfulness and maintain social engagement system during EMDR reprocessing will be thoroughly covered.
