An EMDR protocol for treatment of chemical dependency disorder
Participants will learn: 1) the Chemotion Model for chemical dependency disorder describing how substance abuse presents an reenactment of childhood emotional trauma: 2) how specific object relations deficits constitute emotional traumas that translate into specific chemical dependencies in the adult substance abuses; 3) how the object relations deficits driving chemical dependency can be evoked through Gestalt communication technique or recognized in dreams; and 4) how to apply principles of EMDR to desensitize and reprocess object relations deficits driving chemical dependency.
