EMDR Therapy and the Treatment of Substance and Behavioral Addictions
April 20-21, 2018
Milwaukee, WI

This workshop is presented by Hope Payson LCSW, LADC and Kate Becker LCSW, RYT. Through the use of demonstration, case presentation, lecture and video clips, and practicum this workshop explores the use of EMDR in the treatment of chemical dependency and other compulsive behaviors—specifically, with clients who are not yet abstinent. This treatment-focused workshop teaches you how to stabilize clients and desensitize addiction memory networks without triggering increased substance use or relapse. Leave this fast paced, two day workshop with a new sense of direction.
