EMDR Therapy & Mindfulness for Trauma-Focused Care

Go Back


At this practical and clinical application-oriented training seminar, Dr Jamie Marich explains how we can build a mindfulness-informed therapeutic practice, guided by the EMDR approach, specifically when working with Trauma and its myriad variations.

Dr Marich especially demonstrates how trauma-focussed skills can be adapted for clients who traditionally ‘resist’ affect regulation and stabilization strategies. Uniquely, she doesn’t present these skills as alternatives to our existing modalities but instead highlights how we can incorporate simple, effective, mindfulness and EMDR-informed approaches into our existing clinical models.

  • Through lecture, discussion, demonstration, and experiential exercises we explore:
  • The foundations of mindfulness practice and how these can be translated into clinical settings
  • An initial orientation to how the EMDR approach to psychotherapy views trauma, with a close look at how Francine Shapiro drew upon mind body strategies in her development of EMDR therapy
  • Ways to use bilateral stimulation / dual attention stimulus as exercises in moving mindfulness
  • How a mindful practice can improve clinical outcomes

For participants not trained in EMDR therapy, this seminar provides an orientation, while for participants already trained in EMDR, this seminar introduces methodologies that allow for bolstering elements of mindfulness practice; all with a view to enhancing our efficacy in delivering EMDR therapy, particularly when it comes to improving attunement to clients and honing clinical decision making.
