EMDR is a method that enables the brain to process and integrate information that has been blocked by the "fight/flight" system. The practitioner uses bilateral brain stimulation to enable clients to process disturbing memories and emotions and facilitate them to reorganize their experience into a positive resource.
The therapist can use this effectively in the normal course of therapy as a crisis intervention and for early childhood trauma that is not accessible in conscious memory. EMDR has been in the NICE guidelines for some time for the treatment of post-traumatic stress and current research has supported its effectiveness.
In this one day workshop there will be a demonstration of the method and participants will have an opportunity to experience and practice EMDR. We will also discuss the ethical and professional considerations for its use in practice.
