For those fed up with Zoom training courses, I’ll be running the first in-person Unleash your EMDR Part 1 workshop at the harbour front in Sydney at the View Hotel.
Making the journey from basic EMDR training to becoming a fully-fledged EMDR therapist can be challenging. Unleash your EMDR Part 1 combines the insights of attachment theory to bolster the standard EMDR protocol so it becomes a flexible, relational tool in service of our clients healing. Attachment Informed (AI-) EMDR adds rich imaginal resourcing to the preparation phase of EMDR, and proactive bridging to tap into the roots of client symptoms. This approach radically simplifies the process of target selection, particularly when working with complex PTSD.
So many EMDR novices are confused about where to start processing when working with clients who haven’t experienced a simple single incident trauma. Let’s face it, there really aren’t many of those! Learning AI-EMDR means that after the training you’ll have an immensely powerful tool at your fingertips, a way of applying EMDR to heal those early attachment traumas that so often keep people trapped in self-destructive behaviours. Annabel will be teaching Mark Brayne’s hugely popular material, Unleash your EMDR Release the Magic. Part One. The Basics of Advanced, Attachment-Informed, Integrative EMDR is an evolved version of Laurel Parnell’s Attachment Focussed EMDR. For more visit EMDR Focus.
During this training, you’ll learn how to add rich imaginal resourcing to EMDR to make the processing of attachment wounds much safer and more reparative. You’ll go away knowing how to target any issue, and will no longer need to rely on a complex trauma map but can use the client’s unconscious to bridge into the root causes of all their issues today.
Price $770 (including GST).
I trained with Laurel Parnell in Attachment-Focused EMDR, in New York in 2017. I then worked as a facilitator with Laurel for a number of years in the UK helping to deliver her Attachment-Focused EMDR workshops.
A key component of this course in case conceptualisation helping you understand how the client got to behave the way they do in the world today, whether that’s anxiously or avoidantly. This involves tapping into their attachment story and literally rewiring their brain using the magic of EMDR and the Adaptive Information Processing Model.
The View Hotel is situated next to North Sydney station and boasts some of the best views in Sydney. Email for special hotel rates if you want to enjoy a mini-break there.
