Utilization of EMDR with traumatic bereavement
Traumatic bereavement is the state of having suffered the loss of a loved one when grief over the death is overpowered by the traumatic stress brought about by its circumstances. EMDR can be integrated into treatment of traumatic bereavement to process the trauma that complicates the bereavement and enable the mourner to complete the necessary processes involved in assimilation/accommodation of the loss. This presentation will discuss grief and bereavement, the processes necessary for adaptive assimilation and accommodation of the loss, factors that can complicate bereavement, treatment guidelines, and how EMDR can be integrated into an overall treatment plan.
