Buddhist psychology, EMDR therpay and addictions: The MET(T)A protocol
This presentation will describe how principles and methods of Buddhist psychology, when studied and utilized on their own and when integrated with the standard EMDR therapy protocol along with addiction protocols from the last 30 years of EMDR theory and practice, provide a complete system of psychotherapy that can serve as the primary modality for treating addiction and comorbid disorders in a private practice or agency setting. The implicit and explicit elements of Buddhist psychology in addiction treatment will be identified, and the implications for case conceptualization and delivery of services will be discussed.
