PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP INFORMATION

Attachment-Focused EMDR for Addiction: Healing Relational Trauma and Rewiring the Addicted Brain With EMDR-Based Treatment with Laurel Parnell, PhD
October 16–17, 2019
12 CE/EMDRIA Hours Available

Addiction is costly—not only for our clients, but for their families, friends, employers, and communities as well. And when we consider the cost of lives lost to addiction, the toll can be overwhelming. While there are a number of programs targeted toward helping people overcome addiction, recovery often remains elusive or short-lived for all too many. The good news is that there are proven-effective methods for treating it, such as attachment-focused eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).

Over two days, you will learn a holistic, integrative approach for treating addictions and dysfunctional behaviors that is brain-wise, resource-based, trauma-informed, and attachment-focused. Research has shown that the addictive process is an interaction of impairments in three functional systems: motivation-reward, affect regulation, and behavioral inhibition. When we can focus our treatment in these three areas—using EMDR-related techniques to help support motivation, increase affect regulation, and increase control over dysfunctional behaviors―we may be better able to break the addiction cycle, and support our clients in a life free of addictions.

This workshop addresses these areas integrating methods from attachment-focused EMDR, resource tapping, and the Connecting the Consequences Protocol™.

Attachment-focused-EMDR extends the use and benefits of EMDR and bilateral stimulation for use with clients who have been typically less responsive to traditional EMDR protocols due to acute or chronic relational trauma and attachment deficits. Those deficits include the effects of childhood physical or sexual abuse, neglect, early losses, birth trauma, medical trauma, parental drug or alcohol abuse, caregiver misattunement, secondary trauma, and the cumulative effects of all. Drawing from her extensive clinical experience, Laurel Parnell, PhD, has found that to work more successfully with addictive behaviors, it is important to incorporate an attachment-repair orientation to all phases of EMDR work. She found that by making adjustments to the EMDR phases and procedural steps, clients experienced more complete resolution. Are you ready to help your clients with addictions heal?

Through lecture, slides, and videos of live client sessions, you will learn how to integrate an attachment-focused, brain-wise approach into treating clients with addictions and dysfunctional behaviors, as well as practical tools you will be able to use immediately with your clients.

CONFERENCE INFORMATION

Innovations in EMDR: Transforming Trauma, Mending Attachments, and Supporting Resilience
October 18–20, 2019
Up to 12 CE Hours Available
With EMDR experts Laurel Parnell, PhD, Phil Manfield, PhD, Constance Kaplan, MFT & more

Come join us to learn about the latest clinical innovations in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), improve your skills, connect with like-minded EMDR therapists working in the field, and be inspired.

The focus of this conference is on what EMDR clinicians are most interested in: what EMDR really looks like in clinical practice, and the latest tools and techniques to help their clients—clients who do not fit into a simple technique, clients who require understanding and adaptations in order to help them heal from trauma. Designed by experienced EMDR clinicians who have been using EMDR for over twenty years, this conference focuses entirely on effective utilization of EMDR in clinical practice. Faculty are all expert EMDR clinicians with many years of experience using EMDR in clinical practice.

We believe that EMDR therapy is an art, not a technique that should be used the same way with everyone. Instead, we believe in an approach to the treatment of trauma that is client-centered, adaptive, culturally sensitive, and transpersonal. We use a holistic approach that honors the body, mind, and spirit. Clinical experience has taught us the importance of creating a safe environment in which to process trauma, as well as client-appropriate adaptations to EMDR protocols.

This conference is for EMDR-trained therapists who wish to further develop their skills in working with a range of clients. This clinically focused conference will include presentations on EMDR with addictions, eating disorders, attachment and complex trauma, and acute trauma, as well as innovative techniques such as the Flash Technique, Connecting the Consequences, and Intergenerational EMDR. Presentations will include case material, videos of EMDR sessions, and experiential exercises. You will learn practical tools and techniques to improve your use of EMDR in clinical practice. Morning meditation and a panel on EMDR and spiritual experiences will also be offered, as well as a presentation on therapist self-care.
