“Understanding EMDR and its Various Applications to Breaking Addiction.”
By David C. House, MA (Psy), CSAT, CEMTC, CCSAS, CEMDR, LPC-S
Saturday, July 15, 2017: 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM CT
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a first-choice therapy for treating PTSD and trauma. EMDR has also been demonstrated to be effective with: panic disorders or “anxiety attacks”, social/performance anxiety, phobias, and substance and process/behavioral addictions like sex/porn addiction. I also have advanced training integrating Somatic Psychotherapy and body work with EMDR Therapy. Since the language of our nervous system is the language of sensation, our ‘felt-knowings ‘or felt-thoughts, being closely attuned, tracking sensation and knowing how to naturally work with the body’s way of communicating is a key part of stimulating and releasing our bodies natural, God-designed healing processes.
The presentation includes: What is EMDR; Understand the 8 Phases of EMDR; Essential Mechanisms for State (Momentary) and Trait (Enduring) Change; EMDR isn’t Just for PTSD; and EMDR and Addiction.
