About the Session
This presentation distills procedures, strategies, and tools from hypnosis principles that do not necessitate induced trance and applies them to EMDR therapy; case conceptualization in general, and within the 8 phases and 3 prongs in particular. Verbal and non-verbal communication in the therapeutic dyad is described and methods to reduce negative attunement are discussed. Tools to develop negative/positive cognition’s and appropriate therapeutic interweaves are taught. Attention to and responses to non-verbal communication between therapist and client is also examined. Important non-verbal communications that occur between the client and the therapist during the session are identified to help therapists craft effective interventions.
