Cultural and treatment considerations when using EMDR with Latino clients

Description

This workshop addresses ways to integrate cultural considerations in working with Latinos within the eight phases of EMDR therapy to assist with case conceptualization, treatment planning, and reprocessing of trauma and painful life experiences. It emphasizes the importance of considering acculturation, immigration, bilingualism, fictive-kin family members, and historical and current socio-political situations as both resources and traumatic events for this population. The presenters will provide specific strategies that have been found relevant to work with Latinos including the utilization of EMDR therapy in group and treatment consideration when there is no post-trauma safety.
