EMDR therapy for reproductive trauma
Reproductive trauma includes infertility, miscarriage, perinatal loss, complicated birth, and postpartum reactions. These adverse reproductive events engender loss, disrupting every aspect of clients' lives. This workshop introduces attendees to the range of traumatizing events that can occur in the reproductive period, teaches them to identify characteristics of those events inducing trauma, and to recognize common clinical presentations of these patients. Participants will learn to address decision making around Phases 1-2 and to distinguish between standard and recent events protocol in Phases 3-7. Using case examples, participants will see how the 8-phase standard protocol can effectively be utilized with traumatized parents.
