427 Eye Movement Integration Therapy: A Neurotherapeutic Approach to Trauma
Saturday Morning Only
Much of what accounts for trauma’s pervasive, long-lasting psychophysiological impact on people’s lives is that so much of it remains lodged in unconscious limbic memory . . .
inaccessible to most verbal therapies. In this workshop, you’ll learn Eye Movement Integration Therapy--a neurobiologically-oriented approach that uses the natural association of eye movements with thought processes to access and integrate unconscious traumatic material, while eliciting beneficial, counterbalancing thoughts and feeling states. Unlike EMDR, which relies mainly on one-directional saccadic eye movements (present during REM sleep), EMI uses 22 different slow eye movements, which bring up unconscious traumatic material in different manifestations--through sight, body sensations, hearing, and sometimes even smell and taste. You’ll learn how this method works, for whom it’s most useful, and what kind of results to expect when working with recent or older traumas. DVD demonstrations, as well as clinical and scientific evidence, will show how quickly and powerfully this intervention resolves trauma.
