Alternative strategies for dealing with trauma and trauma in sport
Building upon the theory and research of Wolpe's Systematic Desensitization, a new approach has been developed for reintegrating trawmrtic events and holds promise for work with athletes at a variety of skill levels. Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a brief intervention which enhances the individual's own in order to become perceived as insunnountable obstacles to the athlete's progress. This presentation will provide a brief overview of Shapiro's EMDR approach and describe the technique in genera1 terms. Qualification necessary to use the approach will be described as well as ways to network with EMDR-trained professionals. Two case studies of the use of this technique with athletes will be presented.
