EMDR Therapy with kids does not always look like what one learns in the Basic Training. The differences in attention spans and developmental abilities are just a few of the barriers clinicians can run into. This 6 hour live training will help simplify what EMDR with children can look like. Practical tools will be taught that can be used in all 8 phases of EMDR that are both kid friendly and budget friendly for the therapist. Challenges such as how to involve parents in the EMDR process as well as how to work with children resistant to treatment, will all be addressed.  This training will incorporate the S.A.F.E. model of EMDR therapy with kids which emphasizes the somatic and attachment focus within the EMDR process. 

Participants will review the 8 phases of EMDR formatted for working with children.
Participants will learn specific developmentally appropriate tools to use in each phase with children.
Participants will leave the training with specific kid language resources to use in each phase of EMDR..

Working with Spirituality in EMDR: A Christian Perspective
Presenter: Alice Stricklin, LMFT

This 6 hour webinar will look at the component of Spirituality in the EMDR process.  Specifically using a Christian Perspective for those clients who describe themselves as Christian and are looking for healing from the wounds of trauma in their family, community, and faith tradition.  Following the AIP model of organic and wholistic healing, this training will highlight the often-forgot important component of spirituality in the healing process.  Incorporated in this training are attachment-based treatment as well as spiritual language throughout all 8 phases of EMDR; which help in a more effective and collaborative healing process.   Through each phase of the EMDR process we will be looking at blocks and resources related to the client’s spiritual tradition.  Specific spiritual disciplines will be utilized to teach resourcing throughout the workshop. 



1.      Participants will be able to identify all 8 phases of EMDR therapy and how to work more deeply with Christian clients in each phase.

2.      Participants will be able to conceptualize their cases from an attachment and spiritual focus.

3.      Participants will be able to recognize and predict potential blocks in the earlier phases of treatment.
