This EMDR Europe Accredited Level 2 Child & Adolescent Training aims to extend and deepen the knowledge of how to use EMDR with children and adolescents with complex traumatisation and developmental trauma disorders.
It is open to therapists who have completed EMDR Europe Accredited Level 1 Child & Adolescent training as well have having completed full EMDR basic training.
ABOUT THE TRAINING
The training will consider the changing needs of children at different developmental stages, from 2 – 16 years of age and how the basic EMDR protocol may be adapted to address these needs. Differences between adults and children in their responses to the EMDR process will also be considered, together with how to assess these responses in children. Determining when the use of EMDR is, and is not, an appropriate and safe therapeutic process to use with children will be explored, as well as how to screen for potential hazards, including issues such as attachment disorders and dissociation. Timing of EMDR in the therapeutic process will also be considered.
By means of video demonstration and case examples, participants will learn how to apply EMDR with children who have experienced past traumatic events such as road traffic accidents, bereavement, fire, and hospitalisation, as well as its application with domestic violence and specific phobias. The use of EMDR with children who have experienced prolonged difficulties; including bullying, bed-wetting, and nightmares will also be discussed. There will also be an introduction to the use of EMDR with multiple and severe and complex traumas in childhood. Participants are encouraged to bring with them any relevant case material they might wish to discuss, since ample time will be allowed for both troubleshooting and for case consultation of existing or potential clients.
