Weaving positive psychology into EMDR peak performance work
This workshop integrates the EMDR Peak Performance protocol with techniques from positive psychology, 'launched' by APA President Martin Seligman as the science of happiness and excellence, and understanding strengths such as courage. Participants will be introduced to the EMDR Peak Performance protocol and learn to guide clients in developing "Peak" resources for empowerment. Participants will learn and practice techniques of positive psychology that amplify the efficacy of the Peak Performance work: using positive emotions in the client's performance venue; the Appreciative Inquiry method for strategic performance improvement; and optimistic explanatory style.
