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.
