New York State Society for Clinical Social Work Queens Chapter with The Advanced Clinical Education Foundation of the NYSSCSW Presents:


Program Description

This Presentation focuses on the emergence of spiritual awakening with an exceptional peak experience as an eye movement desensitization and reprocessing [EMDR] therapist becomes a tool of consciousness, moving clients from trauma to their highest potential. A spontaneous integration of higher self or soul is utilized in positive resourcing, adaptive functioning, ego integration, with cognitive interweaves and emotional stabilization and by giving spiritual meaning to past, present, and future, true to the adaptive information processing (AIP) model. A discussion of literature and research will explain this evolutionary perspective as it converges with science and spirituality. A case presentation and experiential exercise will demonstrate brain integration and processing as links to skills of silent intuitive processes within interconnected field of energy and informational flow in EMDR therapy.
