EMDR as Transpersonal Therapy

EMDR as a Transpersonal Therapy: A Cross Cultural Perspective Where East Meets West
Irene Siegel, Ph.D., LCSW / Co-Sponsored by the Green Will Conservancy

30 EMDRIA Credits and 30 CEs provided by ce-classes.com

We will blend Western psychology with knowledge of the Eastern and Wisdom traditions, particularly shamanism and Hawaiian tradition, into the clinical setting using the EMDR protocol for the healing of trauma. The program will be informative as well as deeply transformational as we blend a didactic transpersonal clinical approach with spiritual awakening through meditation and ceremony.

Therapists will develop skills of mindful awareness as they learn to identify their own internal feedback mechanisms within which they can recognize resonance within a shared intersubjective field by utilizing alternative ways of intuitive knowing to determine resonance and intervention from an expanded and a grounded egoic perspective, participating in an interconnected flowing dance of information and energy exchange.

You will learn to:

  • Identify the relationship between science, psychology, and spiritual philosophy as it applies to resonance and mindful awareness, supporting application to EMDR as a transpersonal therapy.
  • Develop skills of meditation and mindful awareness that may be applied within the EMDR protocol.
  • Identify skills of alternative ways of knowing such as inner vision, hearing, knowing, kinesthetic bodily sensations, which can be integrated into a nonlinear EMDR transpersonal therapy.
  • Identify skills of internal intuitive tracking to determine client/therapist resonance as an assessment and healing tool within a transpersonal EMDR protocol.
  • Demonstrate an ability to apply the skills of mindful awareness, resonance, and internal feedback mechanisms for purposes of assessment and intervention within a transpersonal therapy model.
  • Identify the role of the transpersonal therapist healer in modern day psychotherapy, blending western psychology with knowledge of eastern and ancient wisdom cultural traditions within the EMDR protocol.
  • Identify 3 culturally relevant points in the adaptation of a transpersonal EMDR approach creating a universal language within the standard protocol.
