Journey into Hope: IFS-Informed EMDR Therapy for Addiction and Relapse Prevention
Chronic relapsing is the nemesis of addiction, leaving clients feeling demoralized, hopeless, and shameful. This intermediate to advanced 3-hour workshop is for fully trained EMDR clinicians on the integration of IFS-informed approaches within the 8 phase EMDR protocol. Videos demonstrating this integration are combined with lecture and handouts specifically focused on relapse prevention and addiction-specific targets.
