Using Bilateral Methods to Reduce Anxiety and Relieve Traumatic Stress

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 705

This half-day workshop will examine a variety of simple techniques posited to produce bilateral stimulation to "change the brain" by creating new neural connections between the rational (cognitive) and emotional (limbic) areas of the brain. The presenters will provide a brief overview of the neurobiology of trauma, and illustrate the application of bilateral art therapy through case presentation. In the experiential component of the workshop, participants will practice self-tapping, butterfly hug, and will be introduced to the basic principles of the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) protocol. Gentle movement, sound and artmaking will be incorporated to deepen grounding, affect regulation, and developing positive resources. This workshop is designed to be a primer for those interested in EMDR, prior to seeking formal training in it, and to provide insight into a neurobiological approach to trauma treatment that works well in tandem with art therapy.
