Six practice-changing tips from neuroscience and development that inform the EMDR treatment of very early trauma and neglect

Description

Developments in neurobiology of attachment and affect (Lanius, Paulsen & Corrigan, in press) are foundational to clinical advances in repairing early trauma and neglect. Innovations in the EMDR field (O’Shea, 2009, O’Shea & Paulsen, 2007; Paulsen & O’Shea in press) for repairing trauma and neglect in infancy are built on this foundation of neurobiological developments. These include: subcortical affective circuits, gestational learning, the amygdale and other basal ganglia as the locus for object relations affect processing, polyvagal theory of resources and social engagement, the right hemisphere locus of somatic, implicit and relational memory, mirror neurons and clinical intuition, and more.
