Integrative Attachment Trauma Protocol for Children/Teens: EMDR Component of IATP-C

This is a 12- hour practical workshop that is rich with creative interventions, inspiring cases, and numerous videos that will allow you to leave the workshop prepared to:

  • Involve parents in “detective work” to view the child's behaviors from the AIP trauma model.
  • Facilitate the development of self-awareness and self-regulation skills in children.
  • Process preverbal trauma with EMDR through the therapeutic story.
  • Help parents attune and respond with sensitivity to the emotions and traumatic memories underlying the child’s behaviors.
  • Implement EMDR Attachment Resource Development (ARD) to enhance parent-child attachment prior to memory work.
  • Apply EMDR Self Regulation Development and Installation (SRDI) to increase affect and behavioral regulation.
  • Utilize EMDR empowerment interweaves and other creative interweaves for children with stuck brains.
  • Use puppets, plays and stories to help children process the past with EMDR.
  • Heal and find safety for the “inner child within the child.”
  • Use EMDR with role plays to process current triggers and develop future templates.
  • Implement peer consultation for effective collaboration between the family therapy and EMDR therapy treatment team members.

  1. Katie

    I have taken all the courses listed in the ACTI catalog as well as participating in individual and monthly consultations. This is a talented team and my practice has sharpened as a result. The step by step guidance, the video demonstrations, and the reflections from this group have boosted my competence immensely.

  2. M. Killila

    I have been highly impressed by seamless manner in which the ATCI trio weaves together the most recent data into approaches and interventions that are creative and very accessible (for clinicians and clients alike). And, they model having fun with one another and clients while doing it! Just great.
