Colleagues who’ve done our Unleash Your EMDR Part 1 workshop at least are invited to join an experimental 10-week programme for live online demo Attachment-Informed EMDR sessions with Mark Brayne as therapist and a weekly volunteer.
Workshops started on Monday September 6, convening 1100-1300 UK time, for an initial 10 weeks revolving around a live session using the AI-EMDR approach you will have learned on Unleash Part 1 (and possibly beyond).

About this webinar.
Each week’s demo session lasts a full 50-60 minutes, with all eight EMDR phases aiming – building on EMDR’s Standard Protocol – to demonstrate and explore the tight focus and structure of Attachment-Informed EMDR.
We take all appropriate measures to keep volunteers safe and within their window of tolerance. Those putting themselves forward are, needless to say, expected to take responsibility for their own wellbeing and safety, with a shared understanding of this work as educative for the wider group as well as hopefully personally useful for that individual.
In plenary we unpack what happened and why. Note this webinar involves no individual practice or breakout groups, and there is no facilitation.
It’s good if colleagues can commit to attendance in the longer term, helping create a safe context in which to explore what can be quite deep and challenging material.
However we live in the real world, so while encouraged to be present for as many weeks as they can, colleagues are welcome to attend individual sessions, as long of course as they are there for the full two hours.
We ask for payment in advance, with a 48-hour cancellation policy (no refunds after that). Zoom links will be shared with participants only once booked and paid.
As on Unleash Part 1, these sessions show in practice how the following principles can be brought to bear on EMDR on the front line.
- Attachment-informed case conceptualisation, and 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 bridging/floatback 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 the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
Still to come, as this is experimental and innovative!
These workshops include full, in-depth and live demonstrations of EMDR with a real personal issue. This can be a very powerful experience, both for the group and for the volunteer kindly offering themselves to work openly this way.
While we find that participants value this opportunity, the experience can be triggering. For our part, we commit to doing our best to keep the workshop safe and contained. We correspondingly ask participants to take responsibility for their own responses, and to remain at all times open and respectful towards the processes and learnings that will unfold as the workshops proceed.
By registering for an EMDR Focus workshop, and recognising that participation can involve both observation and personal experience of sometimes profound trauma processing, participants agree to take appropriate responsibility for their own emotional wellbeing, and to ensure they have access to any necessary therapeutic and/or supervisory support following the workshop.
For this workshop we require payment in advance. If you find yourself needing to postpone or even cancel, we will refund up to 48 hours before the event.
