Workshop Objectives:

  1. Participants will review the brain and trauma, with a focus on ways to teach parents and children about how the brain works with EMDR for informed consent.
  2. Through experiential activities and case examples, participants will learn play therapy techniques to engage clients for all phases of the EMDR protocol, including assessment of EMDR targets, resourcing, reprocessing, assessing SUD and VOC, closing out incomplete sessions, and body scans.
  3. Through case examples and video, participants will learn how to “put it all together” and what EMDR looks like with children while maintaining protocol fidelity.
