Memory reconsolidation, creativity and EMDR: Furthering our understanding how emotional wounds heal

Description

Karim Nader at McGill in 1999, showed that memories of fear, when recalled remain in a plastic state for a few hours before they are reconsolidated once more into long term memory. Others have shown in humans that during this time they may be also altered. The efficacy of EMDR has thus been given a further scientific foundation. This presentation will relate these studies and also demonstrate the essential role creativity plays in the crucial altering of emotional memory, reconsolidation and EMDR. Ways to improve creativity of client and therapist and hence outcomes will be demonstrated.
