Women are impacted by trauma throughout their lives: from abuse in childhood, sexual assault in adulthood, and systemic misogyny and sexism that impedes embodied expression of their wisdom and power. Attachment-Focused EMDR, an evolution from Standard EMDR, has been effective in liberating women from the constraints of trauma freeing them to flourish in expression of their wholeness.  



This online program is worth 1.25 hours CPD.
