ATCI: Strengthening the Authentic Adult Self: EMDR Therapy for Healing Adult Attachment/Developmental Trauma
April 30 and May 1, 2020
This 2-day training a teaches participants the skills and strategies for incorporating EMDR therapy into internal restructuring and creation of safety and attachment for parts of self, creation of effective resource team and integration of internalized parent and protector/controller into resource team, time-orientation for parts of self, installation of a new bonding contract, and creation of a therapeutic story prior to reprocessing stages to maximize positive EMDR therapy outcomes.
