EMDR for Grief & Loss

Learn how EMDR can help heal grief and loss in this advanced EMDR training.

While grief and loss are normal human experiences, they can often cause immense suffering and be challenging to work through. EMDR is a supportive therapy for those working through grief and loss. EMDR can support the organic process of grief, help clients work through blocks in the process, and aid in alleviating complex symptoms. EMDR may also prevent the development of more complicated issues and diagnoses as related to grief and loss experiences.
