The adverse childhood experiences (ACE) study, addiction, and the role of EMDR
This workshop will present an overview of the ‘addiction-specific’ outcomes from the Kaiser Permanente-CDC Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study (Felitti et al, 1998), the largest, most influential epidemiological study of our time. Case conceptualization with the AIP with addictions will be explored as well as the converging evidence between the ACE Study and our current understanding of the neurobiology of addictions. Proposed “novel” treatment approaches suggested by current research such as “cue extinction” and “reconsolidation” (Torregrossa & Taylor, 2012) will be compared and contrasted with both standard EMDR and ‘addiction-specific’ protocol modifications using case study data.
