The EMDR 'Mixed Bag'

Gain comprehensive perspectives, core insights and intuitive know-how in this workshop. Robin embodies a unique awareness of how to practically and successfully treat trauma through the application of EMDR Therapy and other valuable psychotherapeutic models.
  • Do you want to expand your understanding of how to apply EMDR interventions that assist in maneuvering more fluidly through impasses in your work?
  • Do you want to have more therapeutic tools available to you when faced with critical moment-by-moment decisions in your sessions?
  • Do you want to not just administer techniques but better understand the deeper nature of why your traumatized clients are stuck and how, by intervening at key choice-points, you can help them move towards healing?

If so, this workshop is for you!

What's in the Mixed Bag?

Drawing from Robin's wealth of trauma specialization, you will learn how to integrate a wide range of effective clinical interventions that facilitate targeting a multiplicity of problematic issues arising in the treatment of complex trauma.

Here's a sampling!

The Two Handed Interweave: Participants can utilize the Two-Hand Interweave to help clients develop affect awareness; differentiate between past and future (a huge AIP function), external danger and internal discomfort; projection and the actual other person, a destructive cultural or familial belief and a beneficial alternative, and myriad client-specific themes.

Working with Anxiety: Participants can distinguish between trauma-based and genetically-influenced anxiety, and use EMDR to treat both. They can utilize Marsha Whisman’s OCD protocol and the follow the three prongs through having clients practice calming the body, attacking negative cognitions, and leading a full life, despite a tendency to have anxiety.

Attachment-Focused EMDR: Participants will be able to assess EMDR clients through the attachment lens, strategize appropriate targets for processing, and utilize attachment-enhancing interventions throughout the arc of the Eight Phases of EMDR therapy, starting with the first client contact, moving through assessment-wise history-taking, and treatment planning, and continuing through appropriate targets, cognitions, and interweaves

Getting Sexual Abuse Survivors into Healthy Sexual Lives & EMDR with Couples: Learn to help survivors of sexual abuse move beyond maladaptive patterns towards more functional, mature intimacy. Assess couples for traumatic and/or attachment disruptions, from before or during the current relationship, clear those targets, clear current fears and “reflexes”, and then use the future template of EMDR to install new, chosen behavior between partners. Participants can combine EMDR’s AIP with Bader and Pearson’s differentiation model of healthy relationships.
