This workshop explores the use of EMDR Therapy in the treatment of substance use disorders and other addictive and compulsive behaviors—specifically with clients who are not yet abstinent. Our treatment-focused workshop teaches how to stabilize clients and desensitize addiction memory networks without triggering increased substance use or relapse.
Addictive and compulsive behaviors can provide trauma survivors with a sense of escape from symptoms as well as feelings of safety, control, power and belonging. These seemingly positive aspects of compulsions are short lived and backfire with negative consequences, however the pull for relief from trauma symptoms are so great that cravings increase and a cycle of use ensues. Using demonstration, case presentation, lecture and video clips, this training offers an overview for working with people struggling with addiction. History-taking, increasing clients’ inner locus of motivation, desensitizing cravings, and treating the underlying trauma will all be discussed. Clinicians will increase treatment planning skills and confidence in working with people with substance use disorders and behavioral addictions. Attendees are provided with a scripted protocol handout to use after the training. This protocol includes history-taking, Motivational Interviewing informed interweaves, desensitizing of cravings and working with the maladaptive seemingly positive aspects of using.
