“Modern life brings us in touch with traumas, great and small, that leave us reacting in ways we would never expect or know how to deal with. EMDR and other adjunctive therapies can help us to better cope and to strengthen our inner resources. In this way, we can move forward with focus, purpose and humanity."

 

Dr. Karen Alter-Reid is a psychotherapist in private practice and trains mental health clinicians. She is committed to getting the word out that post-traumatic symptoms are treatable, and a normal reaction to abnormal situations. She devotes part of her time to trauma treatment and training in disaster areas. She developed the Big Oak Psychotherapy & Training Institute which provides EMDR Basic Training and other psychotherapy-related workshops on current topics in the field.

November 16-18, 2018 in Stamford, CT. Deany Laliotis, LCSW. Three day workshop on Relational EMDR Therapy:  Taking the Journey to the Next Level.

Workshop Description: 

As EMDR therapists who treat complex developmental trauma, we understand the importance of the therapeutic relationship as part of the healing journey when our clients are suffering from attachment wounds.  The challenge is how to bring our best selves to the clinical situation, using our experience moment to moment to facilitate the work, making it a shared experience. We will explore ways we can use our selves to best meet the needs of the clinical situation, creating the conditions that make it possible for the client to approach this unchartered emotional territory towards healing and transformation.
