The York event will include daily demonstrations by Dr Parnell of Attachment-Focused EMDR in action, with supervised opportunities in pairs and triads to test your skills for real.

The London seminar will be particularly valuable for colleagues who’ve not yet experienced Dr Parnell’s lectures in person, or who wish to refresh their familiarity with the Attachment-Focused approach.

The seminar will be followed by an optional practice day, also in London (CCPE, W2 6NE), on Sunday October 1st for attendees – and for interested colleagues who might have attended Dr Parnell’s previous trainings either in the UK or the US – to practise their attachment-focused skills in supervised triads.

Dr Laurel Parnell has evolved EMDR to incorporate relational strategies to facilitate long-term healing of childhood neglect, physical and sexual abuse, death and early loss, birth trauma, medical trauma, caregiver disconnection and vicarious trauma.

After this training you will:

  • Understand the foundational principles of Attachment-Focused EMDR, including safety, resourcing and creative imagination.
  • Be empowered as therapist efficiently to repair early developmental stages using imagination and bilateral stimulation.
  • Transform your EMDR targeting with the bridging technique to help clients overcome current symptoms.
  • Upgrade your interweaves to better handle dissociation, phobias, grief, loss and addictions.
  • Leave with new techniques to structure your sessions and unblock blocked processing.
