Day Three: The Canadian Mental Health Summit
Presented by Laurel Parnell Ph.D.
Friday, November 22, 2019 | Calgary, ab
Over the last two decades, EMDR has emerged as one of the most powerful clinical tools available to trauma therapists. In this workshop, Dr. Laurel Parnell will teach you how to integrate an attachment focus into EMDR and to use EMDR in combination with a variety of complementary techniques.
Much of this workshop is built around videos of actual clinical sessions conducted by Dr. Parnell. These videos bring the training to life: participants can see, not just hear about, how the ideas and procedures they’re learning are used with real patients in the real world. Dr. Parnell is an EMDRIA Approved Basic Training Provider as well as an experienced and highly skilled therapist. Her workshops are as enjoyable as they are instructive, and consistently receive rave reviews.
Agenda & Learning Objectives
DAY 2 COURSE OUTLINE (Day 2 will be built on the content provided on Day 1):
Attachment-Focused EMDR: Working with Adults Abused as Children
Dr. Parnell will present standard EMDR protocols in addition to modified protocols to work effectively with this very challenging population. Victims of early abuse may easily become distressed, dissociated, or avoidant. EMDR therapists may need a specific and advanced understanding of the EMDR method, as well as additional skills, to work with them successfully. Topics addressed during the day will include: how to modify standard EMDR procedural steps with patients abused as children when necessary; developing appropriate targets; recognizing and dealing with blocked processing; using interweave strategies, working with abreactions, dissociation and memory chaining; and much, much more. Participants will leave with an array of new insights, ideas, perspectives, and techniques that will help them be more effective with victims of childhood abuse.
Day 1 & 2:
Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will be better able to:
- Describe the five basic principles of Attachment‐focused EMDR and how they can be integrated into the treatment of relational trauma.
- Discuss how an attachment‐focus can be integrated into the history taking and preparation phases of EMDR
- List the four most commonly used resources to install as well as other useful resources and how they can be integrated into EMDR with an attachment focus
- Repair early developmental stages using imagination and bilateral stimulation.
- Name three techniques for working with dissociation
- Describe four ways to integrate an attachment‐focus into the desensitization, installation, closure and reevaluation phases of EMDR.
- Utilize at least four interweave strategies
- Describe how and why to adapt the standard EMDR protocol for clients with attachment wounds.
