EMDR and Autism Protocol/Methodical Guide (C) Sherri Paulson, M.Ed., LCSW

Approved for 3 EMDRIA Credits

Using EMDR with individuals with autism can reduce both symptoms of PTSD and autism. These benefits are long lasting and provide a foundation for continuing growth and development. Individuals with autism present with a variety of complex neurological differences that may make trauma processing more difficult. In order to use the eight step EMDR protocol successfully with these individuals some

modifications are necessary, especially additional resource development in the preparation stage. This presentation will include a step by step journey through the 8 step protocol (as described by Sherri Paulson at the 2014 EMDR Europe Conference) including modifications for use with autism. Interested therapists will learn how the use of social stories, skill training, affect awareness and regulation, strategies to increase verbal expression and more help make the EMDR process successful and comfortable for autistic individuals.
