This presentation will provide therapeutic guidelines to help identify the source of a wide range of clinical problems, and demonstrate how they can be addressed. EMDR therapy is widely recognized as an effective trauma treatment by organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association and the World Health Organization. In addition, 20 randomized studies demonstrate positive effects of the eye movement component. Research has also clearly demonstrated that certain kinds of life experiences lay the foundation for both mental and physical problems. Clinical and neurobiological research demonstrates that EMDR therapy directly addresses the physiological basis of clinical symptoms and dysfunction.
This workshop explores how trauma affects people’s rhythms within themselves and with their surroundings. Trauma changes the way the brain processes information and how the human organism engages with the world. Because of biological systems that are altered in a use-dependent manner traumatized people continue to react in myriad ways to current experience as a replay of the past.
