Module 1 | March 3 - 5, 2021

Trauma Triangle

Unique Addition! Day 1 (March 3)

10:30 am to 6:00 pm (Eastern time)

The Trauma Triangle: EMDR - Attachment - Dissociation


A unique, one of a kind addition to your basic EMDR training!

We believe that the EMDR training is best taught within an attachment and dissociation-informed milieu. To this end, we are introducing a one-day prelude to the EMDR training that addresses attachment and dissociation/parts work - The Trauma Triangle.

A one-day offering, of course, cannot be an in-depth treatment of the subject matter. The intention, however, is to introduce the participants to the vital role both attachment and dissociation play throughout all phases of the EMDR model while they are learning and practicing EMDR as a psychotherapy.

Every module is included in the price!
