Answering the need of adolescent girls who have experiences developmental complex trauma in residential treatment facility: Utilizing EMDR therapy

Description

We decided to bring EMDR Psychotherapy to our treatment center as a primary modality. Our clinical team members are EMDR psychotherapists trained by EMDRIA approved trainers and the team continues on the EMDR path by completed advanced trainings. As we anchored ourselves in EMDR psychotherapy, we developed our milieu to accompany our girls in their healing process. This led us to understand how the milieu can directly support all eight phases with a strong emphasis on the preparation phase. To do this we created multiple adjunctive therapies to feed the resourcing and regulatory capacities of our girls. The purpose of their exploratory clinical pilot project was to measure the impact of this on the functioning of our girls. The clinical project was developed to guide us in being able to establish a research agenda.
