The heart with a door: EMDR with clients with mental disabilities
Session video clips, as well as anecdotal reports on the progress of a series of single case studies with clients with mental disabilities will be utilized to demonstrate EMDR effectiveness with this population. This presentation will emphasize the "phase model" aspects of trauma treatment and will demonstrate where EMDR is effective within this model. Attention will also be given to ways in which the basic EMDR protocol would need to be adapted to meet the needs of these clients. Specific therapeutic issues common to this population will be highlighted while employing an expanded definition of the word "trauma."
