How do we engender healthy relationships for survivors of complex childhood trauma?

Description

Survivors of complex childhood trauma --systemic abuse, neglect, and disrupted attachment schemata -- enter adulthood with internal working models of relationship that often lead them into difficult and painful connections with others. I will address the specific challenges in empowering these survivors to stop "paying the price of admission" to intimacy, and discuss how EMDR can be an effective strategy for addressing pre-verbal and early verbal core beliefs about self, being lovable, and being safe in relationships.
