Utilization of EMDR with Traumatic Bereavement presented by Roger Solomon, Ph.D


The workshop utilizes Therese Rando’s six “R” processes of mourning as the framework for operationalizing what is necessary for healthy assimilation and accommodation of loss. A loss can be so distressing that access to emotions requiring attention is prevented and/or memory networks containing positive memories of the loved one are blocked. With EMDR processing, not only can emotions be worked through, but memory networks can become accessible and capable of playing a vital role in accommodation of loss.

Heavy emphasis is placed throughout the workshop on analysis of clinical material. Videotapes of EMDR sessions will be used to illustrate the application of EMDR to the grief and mourning of traumatic bereavement as well as to demonstrate the “art” of EMDR. Case presentations and live demonstrations are utilized.
