EMDR and conjoint couples therapy
This presentation represents an integration of EMDR with Conjoint Couples Therapy. The protocol offered is clinically and anecdotal derived, applying EMDR with both members of a couple witnessing the other's work. This mutual sharing around triggers and traumas, holds powerful potential for building mutual understanding, compassion and empathy in the relationship. As a work in progress, the presenter will welcome dialog and empirical investigation of this protocol. The workshop will include: guidelines; potential benefits; indications and contraindications; protocol for EMDR and Conjoint Couples Therapy; case illustration; do's and don'ts: coordination with other therapies/therapists; and when Conjoint EMDR is not possible or indicated.
