EMDR meets art therapy for children, young people, and adults

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) was developed by Francine Shapiro and is now used as a treatment for people who have a diagnosis of PTSD/C-PTSD, depression, OCD, and eating disorders to name but a few. This course aims to introduce practitioners to the potential of EMDR as a useful practice tool and signpost to training and accreditation.

Open to all suitably qualified and trainee professionals.

The premise of EMDR has the potential to be a non-verbal treatment that uses bilateral stimulation to support the client’s ability to remain in an optimum window of arousal, whilst simultaneously desensitising and processing distressing material.

The course is designed to offer insight into how the EMDR treatment method can be used with a variety of client groups and symptomology. This will enable attendees to make an informed decision about pursuing an EMDR qualification. At the end of the course recognised training and accreditation will be signposted.

Learning will be through presentations, case studies, videos of EMDR in action, discussion groups, and the opportunity to experience a variety of EMDR resources.

On completion of this course you will be familiar with:

  • Basic principles of EMDR
  • Ways of adapting EMDR for work with children, young people and adults
  • How EMDR can complement arts therapists’ existing tool kit

Tutors: Bethan Baëz-Devine and Nicola Ball
