EMDR & Sandtray Therapy Integrated Online Course
EMDR & Sandtray therapy is the ideal therapeutic combination. Since Sandtray therapy can make the unconscious, conscious, it is a great modality to support the imagery, bilateral stimulation, adaptive shifts, cognitions, regulatory techniques, and more when it comes to EMDR Therapy. Clients move towards their adaptive resolution and their positive cognition when they feel safe enough to do the reprocessing. And, sandtray lends itself to going deeper on targeted issues, which can result in a more thorough approach to healing. In this course, I teach clinicians the how’s, why’s and what’s so they can go back to their office the next day and start integrating EMDR & Sandtray.
