Integrating somatic interventions and EMDR: Keeping it AIP “legal”
Shapiro’s contributions include not only the discovery of the role of eye movements, but the development of the eight-phases for safety and effectiveness and Adaptive Information Processing theory. In tandem, advances in the neurobiology of trauma have resulted in somatic interventions for treating trauma. This workshop will: 1) summarize theory behind somatic interventions and its relationship to AIP theory; 2) identify defining elements of somatic interventions and; 3) identify where in the eight-step process of EMDR specific somatic elements can be utilized while maintaining the integrity of EMDR.
