EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a decades old evidence based intervention that helps reduce PTSD symptoms and increase resiliency. EMDR is not limited to trauma, however, and can be used to treat anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and attachment issues, as well as help navigate life stressors such as confidence issues, low self esteem, and fears and phobias. EMDR is also used to boost positive resources, increasing feelings of self worth, confidence, and calm, and assist in increased school and work functioning. Reflections clinicians use a variety of bilateral stimulation techniques.
IATP-C (Integrative Attachment Treatment Protocol for Children) from the Attachment Trauma Center Institute is an evidence based intervention that combines EMDR with attachment-based interventions aimed at increasing co-regulation and connection between children and caregivers, and decreasing the effects of early life chronic stress, attachment disruptions, pre-adoption issues, and trauma.
SMART (Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment) is an intervention out of the Trauma Center at JRI. This therapy model allows children and adolescents to utilize Reflection’s giant bean bags, trampoline, exercise balls, and balance beam, and weighted blankets to engage both their brains and bodies to help facilitate healing and connection through movement and play. SMART is typically used as a part of other interventions.
TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) is phase oriented, evidence based intervention aimed at decreasing the impact of trauma on children and adolescents and their caregivers.
Individual clinicians are also trained in attachment narratives, CBT, DBT, parts work, community health, 504/IEP assistance, and other interventions tailored to the specific needs of a client or family. You and your therapist will work together to determine the most effective intervention for your needs!
