MET(T)A is a new and innovative way to envision and implement Addictions treatment that is grounded in the well researched 30 year old theory and practice of EMDR therapy. This approach leans heavily upon the incredible work of those who have explored the use of EMDR therapy with PTSD, addictions and a whole host of issues, and upon the obvious and deep need for trauma resolution to be a focus of sustainable long term recovery.

Presenting at the 2018 International EMDRIA Conference

  • Hilton Downtown Atlanta (map)

I am quite excited and grateful to be presenting two times at the 2018 EMDRIA Conference in Atlanta on October 4th through 7th, 2018. In addition to presenting about the Mindful EMDR Therapist with my colleague and coauthor Jamie Marich, I also have the opportunity to present on Buddhist Psychology, EMDR Therapy and Addictions. This presentation on the MET(T)A Protocol updates my presentation from 2016 EMDRIA International Conference in Minneapolis, and further highlights how this type of integration may help in creating systemic change in the delivery of services.

In 2016, I had only really begun putting MET(T)A into action at Refuge Recovery Centers. The fact that the presentation resonated with so many at that time helped me to continue with the work. It was also at that conference that Springer Publishing signed Jamie and I to our contract to write EMDR Therapy and Mindfulness for Trauma Focused Care.

At the 2018 EMDRIA Conference, Jamie and myself, the Institute for Creative Mindfulness, and StartAgain will all be well represented and our message of the power of the Standard Protocol delivered with mindfulness in the service of powerful trauma-focused care can take its next steps toward the easing of suffering for many beings.
