Therapists already familiar with basic EMDR protocols (and trained to at least Level 3/4) are invited to join a continuing series of EMDR Focus workshops with practical coaching in the Attachment-Focused approach to working with client dysfunctions rooted in developmental experiences in childhood.
Personally endorsed by Dr Laurel Parnell, author of the key EMDR texts Attachment-Focused EMDR and A Therapist’s Guide to EMDR, these two-day workshops are built around teaching, discussion, a full live demonstration of Attachment-Focused EMDR (AF-EMDR) in action, and supervised dyad work including full supervised practicums as both therapist and client.
With support from our EMDRAA-accredited EMDR Consultant colleague Annabel McGoldrick, we’re bringing these workshops in 202) for the very first time to Oz/NZ, with Mark Brayne, Jutta Brayne and, we hope, James Thomas (for Auckland) joining us to help with the facilitation.
(For Australian friends curious about all the NZ photographs on this EMDR Focus site, these are going to be updated in due course with UK-based photos, and for the moment reflect Mark’s and Jutta’s passion for this part of the world, having tandemed the length of New Zealand from Cape Reinga to Bluff in 2016.)
Back to the matter in hand, attendees on our Unleash your EMDR workshops are introduced to:
- the importance of understanding and working with attachment in addressing the root causes of most client presentations;
- the use of creative imagination in the effective resourcing of even the most complex clients;
- the proactive use of the bridging technique to identify developmental targets most likely to deliver change in a client’s current life;
- a wide range of imaginal and creative interweaves to facilitate client healing in accordance with the principles of Adaptive Information Processing;
- the importance and value of session structure when working with childhood trauma and adverse childhood experiences,
- and, if we have time, also to working intuitively with transgenerational trauma, dreams and resistances/blocks.
Feedback from previous workshops has been very positive:
Mark is the best trainer I have come across. He exudes expertise, is engaging, compassionate – and I would even use the word “gifted”- at what he does. For me, EMDR has come to life!
Brilliant! I was staggered at the speed of the modified / simplified protocol.
One of the best courses I have ever attended. Thanks to all of the facilitators for, not only their knowledge and experience, but for creating such a safe and supportive space for us to practise in.
One of the best trainings I’ve been on for years. I actually learned new ideas for therapy as opposed to familiar ideas with new names.
It was just the most incredible weekend, absolutely life-changing personally and professionally. It has changed and shaped my EMDR practice for ever more. Thank you!
Mark’s creative approach to Attachment-Focused EMDR brings clarity and focus to working with the root causes of trauma, and the demonstration session was very inspiring.
It was a wonderful and inspiring weekend – learning on so many levels, and this approach certainly expands the possibilities for EMDR within psychotherapy.
