About the Training


Understanding the role of attachment as the foundation of development is a key piece in providing the groundwork necessary for effective EMDR therapy, particularly with clients struggling with complex trauma.  In addition to learning about each of the attachment styles, this training will provide EMDR clinicians with an understanding of how to foster healthy attachment experiences in the therapeutic relationship, and how to integrate those experiences into each phase of EMDR therapy.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify basic principles of each attachment style
  • Understand several interventions for working with each attachment style in each phase of EMDR therapy
  • Understand how to integrate relational work into EMDR therapy to enhance the attachment wound repair process.
  • Identify specific interweaves to increase client’s felt sense of safety and subsequent reduction of defenses
  • Identify tools for case conceptualization and target sequencing that are compatible with different attachment styles
