Update of EMDR research, theory, and practice


In its twenty-year history, EMDR has evolved into a distinct form of psychotherapy with a wide range of clinical applications. Guided by the Adaptive Information Processing model clinicians are able to directly impact the implicit and associational memory networks that govern feelings, thoughts, and reactions outside the realm of rational thought. Increasingly, research evidence is showing that EMDR can rapidly produce change simultaneously on cognitive, emotional, and somatic levels. This presentation will explore research and case reports that address a full range of issues of everyday clinical practice, including family therapy impasses, attachment disorders, chronic pain, sexual compulsivity, and other dysfunctional behaviors and thoughts.
