This 2 hour course will dive into the interweave of Play Therapy and EMDR. Learn how to simplify the process so that you can see how nicely the two work together. We will dive into ideas about resources to help children feel safe before they start processing difficult memories. Also help therapists recognize when children are out of their Window of Tolerance and when they are finished processing a memory.
