About the event

A jam-packed day of playful experiences to equip you to adapt EMDR to working with child and adolescent clients. Bring a bag to carry home all the new resources you will develop.

Registration includes FREE workbook and toys!

This in-person training provides experiences to build your confidence in applying EMDR with this population.

EMDR is an effective treatment for PTSD and childhood attachment ruptures. Applying the eight phases of EMDR for the treatment of children necessitates developmental adaptations consistent with the therapeutic principles of play therapy. This workshop will summarize the principles of play therapy and demonstrate applications for all eight phases of the EMDR standard protocol. This will be an in-person workshop with hands-on practicum experiences. Demonstrations will be provided through mock client participation. Supervised experience will be provided during the workshop to include observation and feedback of practicum experiences. Follow-up consultation is available for participants at an additional cost.

Required Text Included in cost of registration: Griffin, L. C. M. (2023). Emdr Workbook for kids. PESI.
