Sex, dreams and EMDR: Incorporating a focus on nightmares and dreams in therapy of sexual dysfunction

Description

There is an increasing body of neuro-scientific knowledge linking the mechanism of action of EMDR to that of REM sleep. This workshop will discuss how to treat nightmare disorders of REM sleep using EMDR by reviewing cases of traumatically caused sexual dysfunction. The workshop will explore how using EMDR to target dreams allows unique treatment effects to occur. A discussion of cases will be used to illustrate the application of the above findings of neuroscience to actual EMDR treatment of this particular post- traumatic disorder, which is so deeply imbedded in the body. Video portions of sessions will be provided.
