Attachment Focused-EMDR with Intergenerational Trauma
Presenter: Mark Brayne
Therapists familiar with Laurel Parnell’s attachment-focused approach to EMDR already know what a difference her simplification and focusing of EMDR’s Standard Protocol can make on work with more complex clients.
- Describe intergenerational trauma in the context of existing therapeutic and research-based models (from Kleinian object relations through internal family systems to structural dissociation and epigenetic transmission.)
- Discuss case conceptualisation in an intergenerational context, understanding the four distinct levels of trauma (the personal rupture, the attachment-informed absence of repair, the introject and the collective);
- Distinguish working with parts and ego states as they reflect intergenerational trauma;
- Apply attachment-informed EMDR bridging to identify targets holding trauma passed down the generations and internalised experientially in childhood;
- Utilize intergenerational-informed interweaves to rewire narratives held dysfunctionally in the present;
- Assess session structure and conclusion when working with intergenerational complexity.
