EMDR Therapy & Mindfulness for Trauma-Focused Care An evening webinar with Dr Jamie Marich author of ‘EMDR made simple: Four approaches to using EMDR with every client’ Online, 31 January 2018 (Wednesday) 6:00pm - 9:00pm, London, UK time
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) has been recommended as an effective psychotherapy for PTSD and other trauma and stressor-related disorders by organisations worldwide including US, Britain, France, the Netherlands and Israel; and practitioners have increasingly started incorporating EMDR techniques as viable additions to psychoanalytical and cognitive approaches. Mindfulness practice meanwhile has formed the basis of a wide range of psychotherapeutic techniques that have found application in alleviating the manifestations of depression, stress, anxiety and addictions. At this practical and clinical application oriented training webinar, Dr Jamie Marich explains how we can build a mindfulness-informed therapeutic practice, guided by the EMDR approach, specifically when working with Trauma and its myriad variations. Dr Marich especially demonstrates how trauma-focussed skills can be adapted for clients who traditionally ‘resist’ affect regulation and stabilization strategies. Uniquely, she doesn’t present these skills as alternatives to our existing modalities but instead highlights how we can incorporate simple, effective, mindfulness and EMDR-informed approaches into our existing clinical models. Through a video demonstration and discussions, we explore: The foundations of mindfulness practice and how these can be translated into clinical settings An initial orientation to how the EMDR approach to psychotherapy views trauma, with a close look at how Francine Shapiro drew upon mind body strategies in her development of EMDR therapy Ways to use bilateral stimulation / dual attention stimulus as exercises in moving mindfulness How a mindful practice can improve clinical outcomes For participants not trained in EMDR therapy, this webinar provides an orientation, while for participants already trained in EMDR, this webinar introduces methodologies that allow for bolstering elements of mindfulness practice; all with a view to enhancing our efficacy in delivering EMDR therapy, particularly when it comes to improving attunement to clients and honing clinical decision making.
