Eye Movements, Tapping, Sounds
how is EMDR different for Children?
As with adults, EMDR with children involves moving their eyes from side to side to stimulate the brain. However, this can be adapted depending on the developmental stage the child is in (ie. their age) and in order to aid with engagement. For example, finger puppets may be worn when doing eye movements, tapping on the arms, shoulders or legs, alternatively tapping their feet on a ball, squeezing the hands of a teddy etc. These are a few examples; however, the variations are endless and we can work together to think about what would be best for your child.Contact Us Today
