EMDR therapy is a powerful evidence-based approach for children. However, the use of EMDR therapy procedural steps require that we make them developmentally appropriate for children. This session will address the integration between EMDR therapy and play in the sand tray. Sandtray based EMDR therapy is grounded on Gomez’ Multimodal approach to EMDR therapy where movement, dance, play therapy, Sandtray, expressive arts, parts work, polyvagal focused strategies, and parent child interventions, among others are masterfully integrated into the eight phases of EMDR therapy. The work to understand and create the union between EMDR, play therapy and Sandtray therapy is the product of 20 years of dedication and work. This session will provide an overview of initial phases of treatment as well as the various levels of distance offered by Sandtray work within EMDR therapy structure.
This online program is worth 1.75 hours CPD.
