Workshop refugees and EMDR - EMDR with refugees and victims of torture

Description

As trauma therapists we are increasingly encountering the challenge of using EMDR cross-culturally with highly traumatized clients who are refugees from war torn countries and/or oppressive regimes. This presentation seeks to address some of the difficulties of working across cultures, often with the aid of interpreters, who themselves may have been traumatized. EMDR has been found to be a highly effective treatment for refugees, especially where there is a high degree of somatization.
