An EMDR attachment - focussed model for children and parents after family violence
Melbourne- 11th of May, 2018 - REGISTRATIONS CLOSED
Suitable for EMDR and non-EMDR practitioners
REDUCED REGISTRATION FOR NOT FOR PROFIT ORGANISATIONS (Conditions apply)
The workshop will cover:
In Australia, one in four children are exposed to family violence, and its effects are well documented. The ground-breaking report of the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence reaffirmed the importance of helping children recover from the family violence, and the urgent need for effective models of intervention that ensure recovery and prevent trauma over generations.
This workshop incorporates an attachment and trauma framework that assists in understanding complex issues after family violence, including attachment to the perpetrator. It introduces a model of EMDR therapy that heals the trauma of family violence for parents and children, and strengthens their attachment bond. The role of EMDR with perpetrators of violence will also be discussed.
Who should attend?
The workshop is suitable for specialist family violence practitioners, and EMDR therapists who may work with family violence. It will assist trained EMDR therapists to effectively use EMDR therapy after family violence.
