Workshop Description

This workshop, Healing Trauma, Unmet Needs, and Negative Beliefs in Those Struggling With and Affected By Disordered Gambling, will present a neuro-informed, cutting-edge clinical approach that emphasizes that the nervous system is always working towards health and wellness, healing and adaptation. It will show how trauma and trauma diagnosis can be identified in the typical presentations of PG and AI clients. This class will offer an EMDR therapy lens that incorporates our nervous system and our attachment and other human needs. Finally, it will present integrated treatment and healing components that help transform clients’ negative beliefs to positive ones, help them identify and meet their needs, as well as arresting disordered gambling and alleviating painful symptoms and unhealthy patterns and defenses.
