Mindfulness & EMDR Treatment Template for Agencies

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 Santa Barbara CAMFT Chapter Meeting - Buddhist Psychology and Trauma Focused Treatment for Addictions

I am looking forward to sharing with the Santa Barbara chapter of CAMFT on Buddhist Informed and Trauma Focused treatments for addiction. My observation continues to be that there is quite the hunger, quite the thirst for this information, and presentations like this help me to let people know what may be possible. This includes Buddhist based interventions like Refuge Recovery and the MET(T)A Protocol, and an integration with EMDR therapy with a focus on trauma resolution. My hope is that not only will people find their way to utilizing these modalities in their office, but also through MET(T)A will find ways to re-imagine addiction treatment and improve the delivery of services.
