EMDR therapy allows clients to desensitize a traumatic memory or negative thought about themselves. Individuals hold memories in a specific part of the brain. EMDR allows the client to access the disturbing memory or thought and reprocess it to decrease negative symptoms related to the trauma. To learn more about EMDR therapy, please visit www.emdria.org.
The use of the expressive arts multiplies the avenues by which a person in therapy may seek meaning, clarity, and healing. It deepens and transcends traditional talk therapy by acknowledging that each person’s process is unique. While one individual may like talk therapy, another person may prefer to use journaling, movement, art, sandtray, or a combination of different experiences during treatment.
Play is a critical aspect of childhood. Play allows children to express emotion, gain mastery, and make meaning of their lives. Providing a safe place with books, toys, art, and a sand tray allows children to express themselves using their language. It is essential to meet a child where they are and give them unconditional positive regard. To learn more about play therapy, please visit www.a4pt.org.
Forensic mental health evaluations are vital for immigration cases, especially for clients who have experienced trauma. These services are essential for immigrants seeking status through asylum, U‐visa, T‐visa, VAWA, SIJS, and Cancellation of Removal.
