This workshop will focus on integrating EMDR therapy into the treatment of grief and mourning. The death of a loved one can be a time of unparalleled distress and adaptation to the loss can be very challenging. Even when uncomplicated, bereavement can result in significant psychological, behavioral, social, physical, and economic consequences (Osterweis, Solomon, & Green, 1984; Solomon & Rando, 2007, 2012, 2015). EMDR therapy can be integrated into treatment of grief and mourning to process the distressing memories and present triggers that complicate the bereavement, and enable the mourner to assimilate and accommodate the loss.
This presentation will discuss grief and mourning, the processes the mourner has to go through for adaptive assimilation and accommodation of the loss, factors that can complicate bereavement, and how EMDR can be integrated into an overall treatment plan. Attachment theory and other models of grief will be presented that can inform EMDR therapy. Heavy emphasis is placed throughout the workshop on analysis of clinical material. Case presentations and videotapes of EMDR sessions will be used to illustrate the application of EMDR to the grief and mourning of traumatic bereavement as well as to demonstrate the “art” of EMDR.
