Moment-to-Moment Decision Making:
The Art & Science of EMDR Therapy

course description

When working with challenging clients, are you sometimes unsure about what to focus on moment-to-moment?  Are you wondering how long to let “whatever happens, happen” before you step in to facilitate a repair or to bring attention to what is happening in the room?

When working with attachment trauma it’s more than the reprocessing of the negative; it’s about the byproducts of those negative experiences:  the developmental deficits and the adaptations that were made to accommodate the caregivers.  So, how and when do you decide what to target to address these adaptations?  What kind of interweave do you offer to facilitate the processing when it’s more about using these patterns in the moment, not  necessarily because the client is stuck?

In this workshop, you will learn how to conceptualize a case from an attachment perspective, understand how the client’s maladaptive patterns inform how they respond to the demands of EMDR therapy as well as their current relationships.  You will learn how to take what is happening in the session, moment-to-moment, whether you’re reprocessing or not, to invite a deeper exploration of what is implicit and automatic and make it explicit and understandable, broadening the possibilities for profound and shared transformation.

learning objectives

Through lecture, small and large group discussion, videotape of client sessions, and live demonstration, you will:

  • Identify at least 3 maladaptive patterns of response both in and out of reprocessing that are informed by the client’s formative attachment experiences
  • Develop a working understanding of the four attachment styles:  secure, insecure/anxious; insecure/avoidant; insecure/disorganized;
  • Describe how a client’s predominant attachment style informs how they respond to reprocessing demands
  • Learn how each adaptation can be understood through the lens of the client’s predominant attachment style
  • Identify relevant memories for EMDR reprocessing based on a working understanding of the client’s maladaptive coping style
  • Explain how to apply interweave strategies to successfully navigate the moment-to-moment demands of EMDR reprocessing
  • Differentiate between a client’s survival response versus a social engagement response
  • Explain how and when to utilize relational responses to facilitate the social engagement system
  • Distinguish between core affective responses and defensive affective responses in EMDR reprocessing
  • Describe how to apply the three-pronged protocol to help the client successfully integrate new, adaptive patterns of response in their lives
