In this video of a live session with a volunteer client, Dr. Parnell demonstrates the use of Attachment-Focused EMDR with a woman with a life-long problem with binge eating. This session with a complex clinical presentation shows the use of advanced EMDR skills and knowledge, such as how to take a history of the presenting problem and find the best target, how to prepare the client for EMDR trauma processing of the early experiences linked to the disorder, and the use of resource and imagination interweaves to repair early attachment wounds.
