Everyone journeys through life with the same parts to their brain and ability to adaptively process information. With this in mind we will hike a 90 minute scenic route (view slides and client videos) exploring the world of persons with disabilities. The journey will start with developing a shared understanding of trauma and the many parallels between trauma and disability, At our next stop we will discuss the importance of asking about a client's membership to cultures/communities (Phase 1). Our hike will continue to Phase 2 where we'll explore ways to help clients find and utilize strengths, resources and positive experiences they have resulting from being in the community of those with a disability. As we near the end of our journey, we'll explore many ways we have to provide clients accessibility to EMDR phases 3-8 in order to promote healing and build resiliency for clients with a disability..
