EMDR can be a core intervention in the treatment and maintenance of recovery from trauma, including its impacts on body image and disordered eating. This session will offer suggestions for all 8 phases of EMDR treatment and review ways to work collaboratively with medical providers. Somatic awareness, self-nurturance, and wellness principles are an important part of treatment and will be discussed alongside cultural implications. You will learn to use sensitive terminology and the “do’s and don’ts” for these clients.



This online program is worth 1.0 hours CPD.
