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.

Feedback from previous Unleash Your EMDR workshops:

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.

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!

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.

Unleash Your EMDR focuses on:

  • 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 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 the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs);
  • and, working intuitively with transgenerational trauma and dreams.

(Please note that we spend only a short time on the science, theory or practice of attachment in general, emphasising rather how EMDR can be brought to bear on presenting distress that has roots in a client’s early attachment experience. All attendees are expected to have already a functioning basic knowledge of attachment theory.)

Mark Brayne’s own research into Dr Laurel Parnell’s AF-EMDR, presented at the March 2018 London conference of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland, drew on returns from nearly 90 AF-EMDR-trained therapists and nearly 50 clients treated with this approach, and highlighted the value and power of working in this way with more complex presentations.

Health warning!!

These workshops include a full, in-depth and live demonstration on day one of AF-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.

Cost: £350 inc VAT.
