Neuromodulation for EMDR: Defense Mechanisms

Course opens Spring 2022 | How do you prepare for successful EMDR therapy when client defense mechanisms have taken over? How do you restore regulation and avoid the possible risks otherwise associated with beginning EMDR with clients who do not have sufficient dual attention.

Whether dealing with client resistance to therapy, lacking dual attention, or something more severe such as dissociation, neuro-auricular modulation via the ear allows the therapist to bypass cognitive pre-frontal cortex involvement.

Learn to dynamically read the current and specific neural states of clients — disturbances in the limbic system, imbalances between hemispheres, hidden emotions and more  — all using reflex zones on the ear.
