MET(T)A PROTOCOL

Mindfulness & EMDR Treatment Template for Agencies

323-248-7475 X3

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.

August 5-7, 2019: The 30th Santa Fe Conference - Integrating Spirituality, Mindfulness and Compassion in Mental Health and Addiction

The 30th Santa Fe Conference - Integrating Spirituality, Mindfulness and Compassion in Mental Health and Addiction, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, provides a pathway for exploring how to interweave spirituality, mindfulness, and compassion into mental health and substance use disorder treatment. Santa Fe is a powerful place that generates spiritual inspiration. I look forward to sharing this spiritual experience with you as I present two workshops on EMDR Therapy and Mindfulness: Redefining the Paradigm for Trauma-Focused Care and Buddhist Psychology, Trauma-Focused Care, and Addiction Treatment.

Check out my presentations below – and hope to see you there!

Tuesday, August 6, 2019, 2-3:30pm:
Workshop: EMDR Therapy and Mindfulness: Redefining the Paradigm for Trauma-Focused Care:

This presentation combines the wisdom of Buddha, Pierre Janet, modern mindfulness teachers and Dr. Francine Shapiro, providing a new way of envisioning trauma-focused care. We will focus most directly on the infusion of Mindfulness practices into EMDR therapy in all 8 phases of the standard protocol, as described in the book EMDR Therapy and Mindfulness for Trauma Focused Care by Dr. Dansiger and Jamie Marich. It is appropriate and of interest both for EMDR trained and non-EMDR trained therapists.

Tuesday, August 6, 2019, 4-5:30pm:
Workshop: Buddhist Psychology, Trauma-Focused Care, and Addiction Treatment:

This presentation combines the wisdom of Buddha, Pierre Janet, modern mindfulness teachers and Dr. Francine Shapiro, providing a new way of envisioning trauma-focused care. 2600 years ago the historical Buddha proposed and transmitted a complete psychology over his 45 years of teaching. Pierre Janet’s 3 Stage Model of Trauma Treatment provides the bridge from Buddhist psychology to proactive treatment of trauma and addiction today. Now integrated as the MET(T)A Protocol (Mindfulness and EMDR Treatment Template for Addictions), this holistic approach to treatment is now beginning to be used as a comprehensive treatment system at several addiction treatment centers, mental health agencies and in private practices as well.
