EMDR with children and adolescents
EMDR can also be successfully applied to children. Results may even occur more rapidly than in the case of adult treatment. In this workshop, guidelines will be presented for adapting EMDR to children. Special attention is given to modifications in the EMDR protocol and to differences between children and adults in their response both to trauma and EMDR. Indications and contraindications will be discussed as well as ways to involve parents in the treatment. Research information regarding EMDR with children will be resumed. The presentation will be illustrated by videotapes and case discussions.
