EMDR and the Art of Psychotherapy with Children

EMDR and the Art of Psychotherapy with Children:  A Workshop with Dr. Robbie Adler-Tapia “Kids are resilient,” we often hear people say when they speak of the hardships may face.  They bounce back from trauma, family crisis, and health challenges with relative ease. Or do they? Most of us know that children do suffer from trauma even though it may manifest differently than in adults.  That’s why we must approach the protocols of EMDR therapy with children in mind.

Addiction and Trauma: A Close Relationship

EMDR Professional Training™ presents Susan Brown's online course “Part of me wants to quit, and part of me doesn't": An Integrative Developmental Approach to Addiction. Addiction and Trauma:  A Close Relationship Susan Brown discovered early in her career that if she was going to help clients make real changes in their lives, she had to address addiction. “If you’re dealing with addiction, you’re going to find trauma somewhere underneath,” says Susan of the landscape of trauma and its close relationship with addictive behaviors. “You will often find that a client's struggle with addiction is their best attempt to deal with a problem, and they’re not going to give up that solution, until they discover a better one,” says Brown.  “When EMDR therapy came along, it was like magic because we finally had something to treat underlying trauma."
