ATCI Beyond Desensitization: Expanding Childrens Window of Tolerance with EMDR Therapy Online
Beyond Desensitization: Expanding Children’s Window of Tolerance with EMDR Therapy Online Training
When and Where: Anytime/Online Training
Children with a traumatic past are reactive to present-day conscious and subconscious reminders of past trauma. However, the development of emotions tolerance is negatively impacted by repeated, multiple traumatic events, especially within the family. Therefore, the child suffering from complex trauma has a narrow window of tolerance for trauma triggers and for ordinary events such as a difficult math assignment or interruption of playtime. Participants will learn to implement EMDR therapy with the goal of expanding children’s feelings tolerance to ordinary daily stressors and eliminating meltdowns, aggression, and other reactive behaviors. Lecture and videos will illustrate creative methods for activating emotions in session, playful methods of engaging children in processing, and interweaves to activate processing, strengthen emotional coping, and deepen the experience of self-regulation.
