Somatic Synergy: EMDR & DMT for Trauma-Related Eating Disorder Recovery

It’s been well-established that many eating disorders have their foundations in earlier trauma. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is often an excellent way to resolve trauma.

For those clients, adding in somatic approaches such as dance/movement can connect them in a way that enables fully embodied processing. We’ll present a case and tips clinicians can use to incorporate these approaches into their own practices.
