A few reasons we’re different from other training programs.

The S.A.F.E Approach: Safety and Attachment Focus

EMDR is an empirically, evidence based treatment approach.   The SAFE approach adds in a trauma-informed way of working with clients to co-create the conditions in which the client is able to heal and transform.
 
We offer a simplified way to understand and work with attachment and bodily-based trauma responses as well as how to help the client with needed resourcing in these areas.
 
Our concept of “The Answer” is unique to the SAFE approach.  This original concept offers a compassionate assumption, that whatever is here, even the client’s symptoms, are here because they have been helpful or adaptive in some way.  By welcoming and appreciating whatever is here prior to trying to fix it or try to make it go away, there is space for the client to have more self-compassion and healing is more likely to occur.
 
This approach encompasses awareness of the ways that the autonomic nervous system becomes sensitized to fear responses as well as the ways that attachment patterns surface in all phases of the treatment process.  These are important additions that the SAFE approach brings to the basic EMDR Therapy training.
 
The way we teach is as important as what we are teaching.  We demonstrate and embody nonviolence, mindfulness, compassion and self-awareness as we set the conditions for the transformation of learning and healing.

The Attachment Focus: Our approach takes into consideration early attachment patterns and experiences, as well as the built-in trauma responses that themselves become patterns. In most therapies these patterns and trauma responses are considered blocks to the therapeutic process. At PTI we approach these blocks as strengths as well as challenges. We reconsider blocks as overdeveloped skills so that we can safely work within the client’s patterns, rather than against them.

By making the training safe, the complex ideas simple, and the atmosphere as fun as possible, the learning experience is optimized.
