Treating early trauma-engaging parent and child in the therapeutic journey of healing with EMDR

Description

The EMDR treatment of early trauma begins best when both the child and parent can truly experience relaxation and safety in the therapy room. Here we would like to share our experience in creating a non-threatening, environment that is both playful and nurturing. Our presentation will concentrate on teaching ways in which to use the parent-child dyad as a major safety resource as well as integrating the EMDR protocol with a variety of playful modalities tailored to the language of a child. We will demonstrate and teach the specific methods with which our young clients strengthen the attachment bond as they learn to talk about feelings and use spontaneous games to move the treatment forward through the EMDR protocol.

Learning objectives:
Learn to use the parent-child dyad as a major safety resource; and Learn to integrate the EMDR protocol with a variety of playful modalities tailored to the language of a child.
