Utilization of EMDR therapy with grief and mourning
The death of a loved one can be a time of unparalleled distress. EMDR therapy can be integrated into the treatment of grief and mourning to process distressing memories and present triggers that complicate the bereavement, and enable assimilation and accommodation of the loss and adaptive functioning in the future. Different theoretical frameworks (including attachment theory which research shows underlies the variation in grief reactions) will be presented to guide case conceptualization and utilization of the 8 phases of EMDR therapy for grief and mourning. Video tapes of sessions will illustrate the concepts.
