Advanced Workshop 2
Complex Trauma, Attachment and Dissociative Symptoms: Treating Children with Pervasive Emotion Dysregulation Using EMDR Therapy.
12 hour virtual workshop divided in modules of 3 hours each- for therapists fully trained in EMDR therapy
This level has some similarities to the live workshop “Complex Trauma, Attachment and Dissociative Symptoms: Treating Children with Pervasive Emotion Dysregulation Using EMDR Therapy and Adjunctive Approaches.” However, in this virtual training other adjunct approaches are not covered as it is done in the live training.
This 12 hour-4 day virtual workshop provides theoretical and practical 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. How to use EMDR therapy and attachment theory strategies directed to titrate the amount of trauma and keep children within manageable and tolerable levels of activation to facilitate reprocessing is demonstrated. In addition, clinicians will learn advanced strategies to work with dissociative children and children with insecure patterns of attachment throughout the eight phases of EMDR therapy.
Participants attending this seminar will be able to:
- Use strategies for EMDR therapy case conceptualization and treatment plan development with children with complex trauma using the AIP model.
- Use effective resources for stabilization and affect regulation that are suitable for dissociative and highly dysregulated children.
- Utilize EMDR therapy, attachment theory, the polyvagal theory, interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) and affective neuroscience principles with children to facilitate the reprocessing of traumatic material. Adjunct approaches such as IFS, Sandtray therapy, Sensorimotor psychotherapy (SP) and Theraplay will be addressed. Separate workshops will cover each in depth.
- Use advanced interventions to provide distance, titrate and help children overcome the phobia of the trauma and its accompanying affect. Clinicians working with children with severe deficits in affect regulation face the challenge of having these children become extremely aroused or dissociated during trauma reprocessing. These two responses (hyperarousal and hypoarousal) can interfere with the child’s ability to integrate traumatic material. Participants attending this seminar will learn strategies to keep children within manageable levels of arousal and maximize the child’s integrative capacities.
- Master the use of interweaves with highly dysregulated children.
