A heart with a door: EMDR with clients with mental disabilities
EMDR holds great promise as an effective and efficient trauma treatment for clients with mental disabilities, a population inherently vulnerable to traumatic impact. This presentation will emphasize the “phase model” aspects of trauma treatment, where and how EMDR fits within this model, and what adaptations are required to meet the needs of these clients. A report on the progress of a series of single case studies with clients with mental disabilities, supported by video clips, will be utilized to demonstrate EMDR effectiveness with this population. Participants will have the opportunity to address their own cases.
