Treating attachment issues through EMDR and a family systems approach

Description

EMDR and Family Systems Theory offer different but complimentary approaches to improving quality of attachment relationships. The presentation will provide a clinical understanding of the similarities between EMDR, famlly systems, and attachment theory models and an ovewiew of the combined treatment approach. Participants will learn to identify possible precursors to attachment problems within the family that may be useful as targets for EMDR processing, and specific family therapy strategies that will help interrupt negative feedback loops. Participants will learn to utilize parents in EMDR treatment and incorporate the narrative method as an adjunct to EMDR.
