Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful therapeutic method for healing trauma-based problems. Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR) is an evolution from standard EMDR and is guided by five core principles. AF-EMDR stresses the importance of creating safety for the client; it recognizes the therapeutic relationship as the foundation of the work and respects the complexity and diversity of clients who present in therapy. We emphasize the need to be flexible and adapt treatment according to client-centered cultural and individual needs. These basic principles are essential for attachment and developmental repair. Our AF-EMDR training teaches thoughtful modifications of the standard EMDR protocol and extensive resourcing for stabilization and ego strengthening, which aids in the repair of attachment traumas and developmental deficits.

 

In this comprehensive training, participants will learn how to use AF-EMDR in clinical practice. This training includes lecture, small group practice, and demonstrations in a supportive environment. Because this course provides extensive time for practice, participants learn AF-EMDR firsthand and the power of this transformative therapy.

In a supportive environment, participants learn how to use Attachment-Focused EMDR in clinical practice. We will provide you with detailed guidance and preparation to assure a successful training experience.

  • Construct protocols and procedures for using AF-EMDR with a variety of clients
