Presenting at the 2018 International EMDRIA Conference

  • Hilton Downtown Atlanta (map)

I am quite excited and grateful to be presenting two times at the 2018 EMDRIA Conference in Atlanta on October 4th through 7th, 2018. In addition to presenting about the Mindful EMDR Therapist with my colleague and coauthor Jamie Marich, I also have the opportunity to present on Buddhist Psychology, EMDR Therapy and Addictions. This presentation on the MET(T)A Protocol updates my presentation from 2016 EMDRIA International Conference in Minneapolis, and further highlights how this type of integration may help in creating systemic change in the delivery of services.

October 4th through 7th, 2018
Hilton Downtown Atlanta, Atlanta, GA

In 2016, I had only really begun putting MET(T)A into action at Refuge Recovery Centers. The fact that the presentation resonated with so many at that time helped me to continue with the work. It was also at that conference that Springer Publishing signed Jamie and I to our contract to write EMDR Therapy and Mindfulness for Trauma Focused Care.

At the 2018 EMDRIA Conference, Jamie and myself, the Institute for Creative Mindfulness, and StartAgain will all be well represented and our message of the power of the Standard Protocol delivered with mindfulness in the service of powerful trauma-focused care can take its next steps toward the easing of suffering for many beings.
