Let's talk about sex: Bringing sexual health into your EMDR practice

Description

EMDR therapists guide survivors in healing from sexual trauma on a daily basis; however, many therapists wrap up their work once PTSD symptoms have abated. This workshop will provide information on three sexual health models, plus sexual response cycles, enabling therapists to help their clients move towards empowered sexual health. We will address sexual health through the 8-phase model, examining a variety of “past,” “present,” and “future” EMDR target examples related to sexual functioning, delving into potential negative and positive cognition's. Lastly, relevant resources will be shared, helping the therapist feel more equipped with handling their clients' sexuality-related concerns.
