Restoring dignity: Healing the wounds of stigma and prejudice with EMDR
Overall, the psychotherapy field has missed, minimized or ignored the potency of social stigma and oppression as a primary or contributing traumatizing force. This workshop will help the EMDR clinician better understand the importance of social identity and culture, learn to spot the effects of internalized oppression, and strategically transform the impact of prejudice and discrimination. Content will include a culturally aware psycho-social history, expanded NCs/PCs, strategies for social identity resource enhancement, strategic target selection, research supporting the need for and impact of EMDR desensitization on internalized oppression, and a protocol for dismantling prejudice. Multiple clinical examples and video highlights included.
