Breaking the ACE/poor health cycle with EMDR therapy
EMDR therapy is a successful model for dealing with the health problems of trauma survivors. The development of an EMDR Treatment Plan, to treat both health and ACE problems, using the ACE questionnaire, a health history, and specific target selection is highlighted. Specialized techniques will be utilized in phases 1-2 to help the patient experience self soothing, develop emotional regulation,and to avoid re-traumatization in the health care setting. Phases 3-7 will emphasize specific work on past attachment ruptures and health issues. Skills development such as rehearsal for medical visits, and procedures will be presented.
