EMDR with Adolescents

The mechanics of the EMDR processing phase are the same as when working with an adult, unless the adolescent is developmentally delayed.

EMDR with Four to Seven Year Old Children

EMDR with young children who may not know what “therapy” is and/or may not know why they’ve been brought to see a therapist.

EMDR with Eight-Twelve Year Old Children

Children process much faster than adults or older teens but it can be more difficult to assess affect tolerance for emotional regulation.
It is harder to gauge affect tolerance, because they don’t always show emotions the way an adult does.

EMDR with Infants and Toddlers

It is interesting how many adults assume that infants and toddlers are not affected by adverse events in their lives because they cannot explain in words what happened to them.

Theraplay ® and EMDR

Trauma is a disorder of regulation. Children who have been traumatized cannot modulate their arousal, overreacting to stimuli and challenged at self-calming.
