A client once told me, “ I keep referring people to EMDR therapy, but they aren’t getting what I’m getting with you!”
The content of The EMDR Readiness Course represents much of what I have identified is that difference.
I crystallized the most powerful components of the work I do with clients to prepare them for trauma memory reprocessing — all of which have independent value even if someone never goes further on with EMDR therapy.
These exercises are what I have learned from the best of the best in the field and synthesized with my own 17 years of clinical experience.
Here is a look at what is inside The EMDR Readiness Course!!
Week 1 – Introduction
An introduction to how EMDR therapy can transform the way trauma memories are stored in the brain and important differences in safely and effectively treating Complex/Developmental Trauma compared to Adult Onset or Single Incident PTSD
Week 2 – Here Now not There Then
Two practical tools to remind the nervous system that the circumstances of the past are over and that the Here and Now of adulthood IS distinctly different than the There and Then of childhood
Week 3 – Okay to Feel Okay
Two methods to stop the swirling of negative thoughts and emotions – and a powerful exercise to tease out compelling reasons it actually might NOT feel okay to stop the swirling and feel better
Week 4 – Defenses
An examination of four intense obstacles that can block healing of Complex/Developmental Trauma – and multiple methods for profoundly down-shifting these defenses
Week 5 – Support Team
The development of a dynamic team of support figures – and the strengthening of a visceral connection to their Nurture, Protection, and Wisdom, as powerful scaffolding to support the work of healing from Complex/Developmental Trauma
Week 6 – Top Tens
An exercise designed to identify key life experiences and their ongoing impact on beliefs about your Worth, Responsibility, Safety, and Choices
Week 7 – Trauma Memory Networks
The identification of the Core Negative Themes causing disruption to your self-image and healthy functioning – and the strategic mapping of memory clusters to be addressed with EMDR memory reprocessing
Week 8 – Positive Memory Resources
The highlighting and strengthening of Neurological Golden Nuggets – so that EMDR reprocessing can more readily connect them to the trauma memories from which they had previously been isolated and unable to impact
Week 9 – Attachment Repair
A means of becoming the most powerful source of Nurture, Protection, and Wisdom for your younger self, who went through whatever your younger self went through – and developing a foundation for healing from Complex/Developmental Trauma and forming secure relationships in your adult life
