Description of the Webinar
Complex trauma that occurs within the care giving environment in the first years of life has multiple, enduring costs to the child. Not only is the child dealing with the legacy of trauma, but almost every area of development is stopped or skewed. This webinar will review the seven domains of impairment caused by early complex trauma, and their importance for later development and will also focus on the impact of attachment, especially as children later move to another family or remain with birth-parents who have recovered from their own disturbances.

12:30 pm - workshop ends
Sandra Paulsen, Ph.D. is a clinical and consulting psychologist and a senior practitioner and instructor of advanced EMDR therapy trainings. She is an EMDR Institute facilitator and EMDRIA Approved consultant and advanced specialty workshop instructor. Dr. Paulsen is a Fellow of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD) and teaches advanced EMDR therapy workshops in the UnitedStates, Canada, Asia and Europe, to include workshops based on her book, "When There Are No Words: EMDR for Very Early Trauma from the Attachment Period." Dr. Paulsen published "Looking Through the Eyes of Trauma and Dissociation: An Illustrated Guide for EMDR Therapists" in 2009. She co-authored a book published in 2012 "Neurobiology and Treatment of Traumatic Dissociation: Towards and Embodied Self" by Lanius, Paulsen, and Corrigan. With Ana Gomez, she co-authored "All the Colors of Me: My First Book on Dissociation" in 2017.
Dr. Paulsen was invited faculty to the 1st World Congress on Ego State Therapy in Germany and the 3rd World Congress on Ego State Therapy in South Africa. She presented at an invited pre-conference workshop on EMDR therapy and dissociation for the ISSTD Conference in 2010 and was the invited Master Series Lecturer at the 2004 EMDRIA Conference in Montreal, Canada.
Dr. Paulsen discusses how developments in neurobiology of attachment and affect (Lanius, Paulsen & Corrigan, 2014) are foundational to clinical advances in repairing early trauma and neglect. Innovations in the EMDR field (O'Shea & Paulsen, 2007; Paulsen & O'Shea, in press) for repairing trauma and neglect in infancy are built on this foundation of neurobiological developments. These include: subcortical affective circuits, gestational learning, the amygdale and other basal ganglia as the locus for object relations affect processing, polyvagal theory of resources and social engagement, the right hemisphere locus of somatic, implicit and relational memory, mirror neurons and clinical intuition, and more.

This webinar will describe how to use EMDR therapy in the treatment of panic disorder. Information will be given on what needs to be accomplished in each of the 8 phases of EMDR therapy to be effective with this population.
