Dr. Mosquera is an accredited EMDR Europe Trainer and Psychologist from A Coruña, Spain, will be training on how to integrate EMDR The Progressive Approach, a comprehensive model of EMDR Therapy for working with clients with Complex Trauma & Dissociative Disorders. After many early cautions about the potential dangers of using EMDR with individuals suffering from dissociative disorders, limited proposals have been offered for adapting EMDR procedures to this specific population. Based on these early cautions, EMDR is still considered by many clinicians as offering interventions that are limited to the treatment of traumatic memories in high functioning dissociative clients and only after a long preparation phase that depends on other treatment modalities. 

approximate date: Mar. 5, 2021 at Southern CT State University in New Haven, CT. Please check back to confirm details with regards to changes due to COVID-19.
