Protocol for the utilization of EMDR with grief and mourning
EMDR can be utilized within an overall framework for treatment of grief and mourning. Processes tat mourners go through to accommodate and assimilate the loss, and how EMDR can be utilized for each process, will be discussed. EMDR can also be utilized in the safe development of an adaptive "inner representation" that enables the mourner to move from "loving in presence" to "loving in absence." A protocol for the utilization of EMDR in treating traumatic grief will be discussed. Data from a study involving parents of murdered children, where EMDR was utilized, will be presented.
