EMDR and CBT - Burt and Ernie or Punch and Judy? - a joint treatment approach with complex children and adolescent trauma
Are EMDR and CBT sworn enemies or best friends? This workshop will through teaching, case presentation and small group exercises explore how Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and EMDR can function as a seamless therapeutic treatment model with children and adolescents of all ages. Participants will: • Develop an understanding of what factors constitute complex trauma in children and adolescents and the hurdles it presents to effective treatment in EMDR. • Discover what strategies the CBT model can offer in relation to engagement, goal setting and relapse prevention as part of EMDR treatment. • Practise designing behavioural experiments for children and adolescents to equip them to test and apply their new learning following EMDR reprocessing. • Learn how to utilise the CBT cycle model in providing a rationale for EMDR treatment for children, adolescents and parents and post EMDR treatment understanding and consolidation of change.
