"I stood by a river“ – Integrating EMDR and sensorimotor psychotherapy in the treatment of torture survivor

Description

I will be presenting the case of an Iranian refugee in the UK who was imprisoned for many years in Iran and subject to prolonged torture. I will discuss the use of integrated EMDR and sensorimotor psychotherapy in his treatment, and outline how standard treatments need to be adapted in the case of trauma arising from human rights abuses.
