Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a powerful therapeutic method for healing trauma-based problems and bringing unfinished issues to a completion. This healing modality based in neuroscience, combines mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and somatic practices into one treatment modality. EMDR treats symptoms such as: emotional, sexual & physical abuse, accidents, surgery, and the emotional traumas of grief & loss. EMDR transforms the impact of childhood abuse & neglect. As EMDR is utilized to transform early conditioning, it releases coping patterns held in the mind & body. EMDR allows one to open to authentic genuineness, living ones purpose, & creates spiritual transformation. Through lecture, hands-on practice, and demonstrations, participants will learn protocols and procedures for using EMDR with a wide range of diagnostic categories.
