Integrating internal restructuring with EMDR with adult attachment trauma
Attachment trauma negatively impacts adults in the development of their sense of self, their personality structure and functioning,and their ability to form healthy attachments in present-day relationships.The adverse effects of attachment trauma can also impede therapeutic relationships as well as clients’ abilities to benefit from EMDR therapy. This session teaches participants the skills and strategies aimed at effectively dealing with attachment trauma by employing knowledge about attachment and applying and integrating creative and powerful elements from the internal restructuring work during the preparation stage to assist clients in successfully transitioning to the reprocessing stage and maximizing positive EMDR therapy outcomes.
