The impact of attachment in EMDR therapy: Theory and practice with video
Insecure and disorganized attachments profoundly affect the developmental trajectory of the future adult. In those with an early history of trauma, childhood emotional neglect increases the risk of developing borderline personality and dissociative disorders. Understanding attachment classifications from the adaptive information processing perspective is crucial for case conceptualization and targeting sequence. Attachment organization impacts patients’ abilities to provide a history, responses to the calm place and to reprocessing targets. This workshop will illustrate attachment patterns in EMDR therapy sessions and how to adapt interventions along the eight phases of EMDR therapy through videos and case examples.
