About This Course

It can be challenging to work with parents of traumatized children, particularly when those parents might be at fault for inflicting the trauma/abuse, or devastated by their child’s disclosure of trauma/abuse. Very often, these parents hold their own unprocessed trauma that interferes with healthy caregiving and can limit their children’s ability to heal.

With more than a decade of experience working with highly traumatized families within a Child Advocacy Center, EMDR Consultant and Training Facilitator Cherilyn Rowland Petrie has learned how to apply the AIP model within family systems to promote long-term healing and break harmful intergenerational cycles. In this workshop, Cherilyn shares her approach for using AIP-informed case conceptualization and selective reprocessing to unlock parental empathy and facilitate positive attachment and bonding.

This workshop will guide clinicians to apply their EMDR skills fully – improving clients’ parenting skills and reducing barriers to safe and effective parenting.

Clinicians will learn to hone their case conceptualization skills, develop creative resources to strengthen parenting skills, and identify targets to reduce past traumatic experiences that presently impact parenting and attachment.

Clinicians will also learn how to apply Early EMDR Interventions (EEI) to parents when they are traumatized by learning of their child’s disclosure. Facilitating appropriate healing in the parent can create the environment the child needs to heal and thrive.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify 3 skills for case conceptualization of parents of traumatized children
  2. Specify 5 client/situational qualities for successful application of EEI
  3. List 3 skills for creative resourcing with parents
  4. Explain how to create an EMDR Treatment Plan that is focused on reducing barriers to parenting
  5. List 3 skills for enhancing Future Template work with parents

About The Presenter:

Cherilyn became a Florida Qualified Supervisor in 2006 and was credentialed as an EMDRIA-Approved Consultant 2013.

For 20 years, Cherilyn worked as a therapist and then Clinical Supervisor for the Mental Health Team at Kids House, a Children’s Advocacy Center in Seminole County, Florida. There, she specialized in using EMDR Therapy to treat children and adolescents who have experienced early trauma, attachment injury, and neglect, and who have complex clinical presentations.

Now in private practice, Cherilyn remains committed to training others to meet the needs of these traumatized children. She believes in supporting other professionals as they navigate the learning curve of EMDR Therapy and is excited about helping them find creative and effective ways to intervene in the lives of children.

Cherilyn understands the needs of community mental health agencies and the investment they make in training. She is dedicated to helping agencies develop working environments that foster retention of EMDR-trained staff.
