Healing Trauma Through The Body In EMDR Therapy

Friday, January 22, 2021 from 9:00am-3:30pm

This workshop offers 5 CE hours

and 5.5 EMDRIA CE's

Bessel Van der Kolk, renowned expert in the field of trauma, stated, “The single most important issue for traumatized people is to find a sense of safety in their own bodies”.  Somatic Experiencing (SE). developed by Peter Levine, Ph.D., author of the best seller, Waking the Tiger:  Healing Trauma, is a potent psychobiological approach to resolving symptoms of trauma and chronic stress. SE offers a framework to assess where a client is “stuck” in fight, flight or freeze and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixed physiological states that underlie many trauma symptoms. The goal of this workshop is to illustrate the importance of the body in treating trauma and offer tools to support greater physiological regulation in clients participating in EMDR therapy. Through didactic and experiential learning, EMDR trained participants will gain a basic understanding of SE and how to begin to apply somatic interventions in their EMDR practice. In addition, they will learn how the integration of SE and EMDR can lead to more embodied physiological, psychological and spiritual healing. The minimum requirement is completion of the EMDR Weekend 1 training.

Target Audience:

EMDR trained Psychologists, Social Workers, MFTs, Professional Counselors and Substance Abuse Counselors

Course Objectives:

This is an intermediate level course. At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Formulate a basic understanding of Somatic Experiencing (SE*) and why it is a highly effective treatment for PTSD.
  • Utilize at least 2 SE tools to support physiological and emotional regulation.
  • Explain 2 ways that EMDR practitioners can use polyvagal theory to help determine a client's readiness to move forward in EMDR.
  • Apply 2 principles of SE when taking clinical history during phase I of EMDR.
  • List 2 reasons that SE can be highly effective in preparing clients for EMDR.

  • Differentiate between dissociation/ disembodiment and ANS regulation during all 8 phases of EMDR.
