The Progressive Approach of EMDR Through a Case Example

About the Course:

The “Progressive Approach” (Gonzalez & Mosquera, 2012) was introduced in 2010, as a proposal to use of EMDR with Dissociative Disorders in safe way. After many early cautions about the potential dangers of using EMDR with individuals suffering from dissociative disorders, EMDR is still considered by many clinicians as offering interventions that are limited to the treatment of traumatic memories in high functioning clients, and only after a long preparation phase. But this is only one of the ways EMDR can be used with this population.

Using this model, this webinar will address how EMDR clinicians can safely utilize a wide range of EMDR interventions early in the preparatory phase of treatment. A clinical case will be used to illustrate interventions with EMDR for dissociative clients following the “Progressive Approach”.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, The Progressive Approach of EMDR Through a Case Example created by Dolores Mosquera, MA in 2019.
