The use and adaptation of EMDR technique with sexually abused children
Thanks to a European Equal project the sexually abused children who came to our Center for therapy have been treated with EMDR. We will illustrate, through the use of clinical examples, the main therapeutic issues, the difficulties and strategies in order to exceed them. In particular, we will address the following topics: the use of "menus,” the use of positive installations, how to identify targets, how to exceed the use of psychological defenses, mainly dissociative, etc. We will then highlight the advantages of using EMDR with those children.
