EMDR and the Art of Psychotherapy With Children

Dr Adler-Tapia’s workshop, based on her book and treatment manual, will focus on basic and advanced skills in adhering to the EMDR protocol for treatment of children. Case conceptualization will be presented through the lens of the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP). She will explain how to change the language of EMDR to meet the child’s developmental needs, and how to specifically apply the 8 phases with children. Participants will learn how to develop a comprehensive treatment plan and create child-oriented methods for Resource Development Installation (RDI) and Cognitive Interweaves. In addition, Dr Adler-Tapia will discuss child development theory as it applies to the AIP model. Participants will learn how to use EMDR with complex cases and with a variety of special topic areas, including: ADHD, giftedness, OCD, attachment, dissociation, and sexual reactivity. This interactive workshop includes videos, practica, and didactic material, to deepen participants’ understanding of how to implement EMDR with children and enhance their skills in working with children.
