Therapy with military and their families in a time of war
Numerous military and veteran organizations recognize EMDR as a recommended treatment for PTSD. Rapidly increasing numbers of Active Duty, Reserve and National Guard combat veterans and their families are in need of mental health treatment, and most of that treatment will likely be provided by civilian therapists who may not have personal military experience. Therapists who have not served in the military can develop military cultural knowledge and provide equally high quality service to military individuals and families. We will discuss and develop EMDR targets related to Combat Stress Reactions, narcissism, ‘violations of the social contract’ and other trauma.
