Treating headaches with EMDR
We will begin with an overview of the etiology and mechanics of migraine and tension headaches. During this seminar the three components of this method of headache treatment utilizing EMDR will be demonstrated and discussed. Participants will be taught to identify the types of headaches that can be successfully treated with this method and distinguish where this trearment is contraindicated. Advanced diaphragmatic breathing techniques, one of the components of this method, will be demonstrated and practiced. The goal of this workshop is that upon completion you can begin to practice an effective, non-pharmareutical, EMDR based treatment for headaches.
