Connecting the Dots

Have you ever wondered how you could improve your success using EMDR therapy?  Have you considered how early exposure to events created neural links or pathways that seemingly drove people to subconsciously repeat the same poor choices or patterns of behaviors?  Have you been able to connect the dots between these events, presenting symptoms, and understand how to target them for reprocessing?  This program is not about learning to ask clients about traumatic events and targeting them, but really conceptualizing how clients got to where they are at by reverse engineering their life’s path of events.  In this program you will learn how to reverse engineer and connect the dots in an in depth manner to improve your therapeutic success rates and clients’ successful outcomes.  You will be able to understand the neural biological impact of trauma on the brain’s development that leads to choices, underlying beliefs, patterns of symptoms and behaviors, how to develop a target sequence of events and learn in what order to target them to ensure your clients successful reprocessing of events, decrease in symptoms, and improve their overall functioning.
