EMDR for children and adolescents
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a recently developed psychotherapy method for working through traumatic memories and related psychological problems. Recent literature reviews find strong support for EMDR's superiority to traditional approaches to trauma therapy, and that it is more efficient than trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy in direct comparisons. This presentation will include an explanation of the EMDR procedure, a review of child/adolescent EMDR research, and a video portion of an EMDR session with a child.
