Healing children through integrating play & art therapy with EMDR therapy
Integration of play/art therapy throughout each of the 8 phases of EMDR Therapy is a powerful healing process for children experiencing simple/complex trauma. This workshop provides justification for and examples of how to integrated play/art therapy with EMDR. Through discussion, illustrations, case studies and hands-on activities, participates will identify ways to integrate play/art into their use of EMDR with children. Participants will observe and critique samples of play/art techniques and develop the stages of EMDR: case conceptualization, processing and integration. Attendees will develop a written strategy for applying workshop information to a specific EMDR session with a child.
