About the Session
Diversity and inclusion of EMDR expands beyond skin color. Simultaneously, trauma prevention must be viewed from working with individuals to creating policies to better protect our communities. This course provides a framework for understanding EMDR access across categories of diversity. Special EMDR examples will show implications for immigration, unlearning racism, and ways to modify EMDR for accessibility. Virtual and in-person tools provide options for setting up culturally humble sessions that meet our clients where they are. Examples across the Spectrum of Prevention offer a perspective for rethinking the role of an EMDR therapist in trauma prevention for generations to come.
