Program Description:

EMDR processing of infancy trauma is without explicit picture memory or narrative, targeting instead by time frame, capturing emerging cognitions (O’Shea & Paulsen, 2007). The story tells itself not only in the client’s subjective affective and somatic felt sense, but through therapist mirror neuronal response, enactment material in the relationship field, intuition, experienced energy release, and more. Ego state work shifts loyalty from the parent to self. We evoke imaginal repair vivified with felt sense, and empathic attunement as the client imagines getting what she needed on her own terms. By this means, the work restores compassion, hope and connection.


Goals & Objectives:

  • List five ways the story tells itself non-verbally.
  • List two ways the story tells itself verbally.
  • Define traumatic reenactment.
