EMDR, spirituality, and healing in children

Description

The treatment modality Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing [EMDR] is an integrative approach that researchers have shown to be effective in dealing with post-trauma symptoms in both children and adults. In recent studies EMDR has been shown to be helpful in treating children and adolescents with various therapeutic issues, ranging from low self-esteem to major conduct disorders. In this article, the author elaborates on her work with children using the EMDR process to move the clients to a spiritual meaning-making that seems to foster more positive emotional states and adaptive behaviors. Theoretical support from theologians, religious educators and EMDR specialists is presented especially in regard to clients' self-transcendent experiences.
