Dr Laurel Parnell has pioneered EMDR for more complex clients, incorporating relational strategies to facilitate the 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.


Cancellations up to six weeks before the training will be refunded minus a 10% handling charge. After that point, without someone else to take the place, there will be no refund.
