Application of EMDR and brainspotting with addiction and mental health
In writing this article, it is important to understand that once trained in eye movement and desensitization reprocessing (EMDR) and brainspotting, the applications can be limitless. I have had limited trainings in both areas and am not certified in either approach. However, with the different levels of training and the numerous books available to all clinicians, the ability to use these approaches effectively is based on the clinician’s experience, willingness to integrate and use the approaches, and coming to an understanding of what EMDR and brainspotting has the potential to do with clients. That said, I intend on completing the trainings in both approaches given there is always something new and exciting to learn in this field. In the meantime, ongoing readings and applications will continue in practice.
