Utilizing brain gym to enhance child EMDR processing
This presentation describes the Triune Brain Theory and recent research on trauma and its effects on brain development and functioning. How the brain functions when stuck in trauma is then integrated with Brain Gym techniques to explain how to facilitate whole brained functioning for effective EMDR processing. In the workshop, participants will learn: To understand the Triune Brain Theory and how evolution has created “bottom up” instead of “top down” processing when overwhelmed by trauma; To identify the energy imbalances in the brain which block EMDR processing and; To demonstrate Brain Gym exercises which correct a traumatized/stressed brain’s “bottom up” processing.
