Using EMDR to treat trauma as a result of childhood ridicule in gay men
This training will enable participants to identify trauma responses in sexual minority clients (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender) and the developmental origins of these responses. The trauma addressed is a result of a long-term pattern of childhood social ridicule. Participants will learn how to screen for certain psychological disorders that are more common in this population and situations whereby supplemental therapies are needed. The effectiveness of EMDR in reprocessing the trauma will be demonstrated through a presentation of 6 cases. Participants will become familiar with the importance of gay affirmative psychotherapy and referral sources.
