Interested in addressing substance use disorders and behavioral addictions with EMDR and getting lost in a maze of Feeling States, DeTURs, and stabilization barriers? Need some direction?

At this 2-Day training, we utilize a variety of learning styles to explore the use of EMDR therapy in the treatment of substance use disorders and other compulsive behaviors—specifically, with clients who are not yet abstinent.
This treatment-focused and practical workshop teaches you how to stabilize clients and desensitize addiction memory networks without increasing the risk of relapse.
