Rebuilding trust: Healing for couples using EMDR
Previous couples' therapy using EMDR has focused on attachment injuries. The body of work is discussed, as is the EMDR protocol, for couples proposed by Moses (2003). This workshop focuses on trust wounds within the relationship my describing 3 scenarios: substance abuse, violence abuse, and infidelity. Protocol variants that enhance client safety are illustrated. Results that include trauma resolution, increased empathy, relapse prevention gains, and heightened intimacy are reported. Innovative outcome assessment instrumentation is demonstrated.
