Repairing the attachment system through the use of EMDR, play and creativity
This practical and hands on presentation is designed to provide fresh, creative and effective strategies for clinicians working with insecurely attached children and adolescents. The focus of this presentation is placed on the reprocessing phases of EMDR treatment (4-6), the healing of the attachment system and the use of reparative interweaves. This includes interweaves designed to promote integration at different levels of human experience: Cognitive, emotional, somatic and spiritual. Interweaves directed to complete defensive responses, meet attachment needs, modulate arousal and maintain the social engagement system active will be demonstrated. Several video clips will be presented to provide a very concrete and tangible experience.
