Using EMDR to overcome roadblocks in addiction recovery: Clinical applications based on phenomenological inquiry

Description

The presenter will apply the EMDR protocol to work with recovering addicts. EMDR can assist these clients in working through recovery roadblocks such as inability to express feelings in a healthy manner and improper perspectives on lifestyle change. The workshop will reference the findings of the presenter’s 2008-2009 doctorial dissertation, “EMDR in Addiction Continuing Care: A Phenomenological Study of Clients Treated in Early Recovery.” The presenter, who regularly uses EMDR with recovering addicts, will draw upon the literature and extrapolate the clinical relevance of her study’s findings in a way that is palatable to both scholars and practitioners.
