Laurel Parnell is a certified EMDR therapist who is dedicated to motivating clients and clinicians in gaining understanding, balance and healing. You will walk away inspired to follow through with the concepts in your personal and professional lives.
In this video Laurel shows how to use Attachment-Focused EMDR with a woman with a phobia that causes her panic and anxiety. In the beginning of the session, the client tearfully explained that she was triggered by seeing or hearing young mothers with small children when the mother or the child seemed to be in distress. The client was so triggered by this, that she would become overwhelmed with anxiety, panic and either attempt to intervene, or flee from the situation. The problem was life-limiting and debilitating.
You will learn the EMDR techniques Laurel Parnell uses in order to find the target and help the client to feel grounded and at peace.
