Child empowerment EMDR link with parental EMDR and hugs, a new method to improve attachments and trauma events in children
The possibility of assigning control of psychotherapeutic processes to children, allows, when supervised, to create conditions for the resolution of traumatic events in a more natural and structured way. In this context was developed a new protocol of Child empowerment EMDR that associated with the new protocol of parental EMDR allows, through several educational videos, to confirm the effectiveness of these new intervention procedures with EMDR. The structuring of application and integration of these protocols is based on the EMDR developed model by Joanne Morris-Smith and Michel Silvestre. The application of these two new models associated themselves to strengthen the bonds and stimulation with hugs, allow to strengthen, not only the power of the safe place of the Protocol EMDR developed model, as well as triggering an increase in stimulation and bonds in the child that are essential resources for the resolution of memories, cognitions, sensations or traumatic images. Through the visualization of several clinical and educational videos it is possible to verify the application of these two protocols in different clinical contexts and to confirm the power that it has in the resolution of different clinical situations.
