EMDR-based group therapy for traumatized refugee preschoolers
Ben, the Bear
An EMDR-based group treatment of refugee preschoolers with post-traumatic stress
Content of the half-day seminar
The concept and manual were designed to work with post-traumatically stressed preschoolers in the group setting of kindergartens.
The aim is to activate and strengthen resources, reduce post-traumatic stress and to stimulate the processing of stressful experiences.
The concept was developed on the basis of EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) and the AIP model (Adaptive Information Processing Model) by Francine Shapiro. Elements of therapeutic storytelling as well as the application of the Butterfly Hugs according to Ignacio Jarero & Lucy Artigas have been adapted.
The seminar is aimed for trained EMDR therapists with experience in working with younger children.
The half-day seminar will be offered again in spring 2024.
If you are interested, pre-registration is already possible.
The three-hour event (4 units) will take place in Bonn, costs: 160,-€ per person.
