74: EMDR for the New Year [Why EMDR Works Series]
Zero Disturbance
by Kambria Evans, The Teaching & Learning EMDR Consultant
2M ago
The new year is often a time for goal-setting and resolution-making, but so many people struggle with following through over the next 12 months. That’s not true for those who are using EMDR in their treatment. Why? Because the foundation of EMDR is about desensitizing disturbance of what happened in the past, what’s happening in the present, and creating a bridge into the future to feel calmer and more resourced. That’s how true change occurs. We don’t have to sit in discomfort for too long. EMDR can help us to create the future we want and deserve. This week on the podcast, I’m walking throug ..read more

73: EMDR for Grief [Why EMDR Works Series]
Zero Disturbance
by Kambria Evans, The Teaching & Learning EMDR Consultant
2M ago
When there’s a loss like the death of a loved one, there’s a cultural acknowledgement of that loss that gives us the time and space to grieve and to heal. But we experience grief in so many other situations, outside of death. Grief is something that helps us to process changes, like the death of an idea of the life we thought we’d have. We can never fully imagine how change and grief hits us because of illness, a move, or job loss. Life changes all the time and we often grieve those changes. But we don’t get the same response from the world around us as we do when someone passes away. This wee ..read more

72: EMDR for Anger [Why EMDR Works Series]

We all know someone who has anger “problems,” but I believe that there’s a different conversation we need to have about anger. Anger is a feeling, not a problem, and it’s not bad unless expressed in a way that’s disproportionate to what’s happening. But not expressing enough anger is an even bigger problem than too much anger. Let me convince you why. Anger is a biologically-programmed survival response. However, society’s curriculum often tells us to repress it, specifically telling women that we can’t express our anger because it’s not ladylike or proper. The reality is that we can’t remove ..read more

71: EMDR for Disordered Eating [Why EMDR Works Series]

  We all have a relationship with something that’s helping us to feel a certain way, full and in control, empowered and attached. But we’ve been given so many different curricula around what we’re supposed to look and feel like, we’re using behaviors like food restriction or binging and purging in an effort to feel a certain way. Disordered eating isn’t a term I love, but it’s what’s used in mainstream culture. It’s a relationship, and not a healthy one. So when a therapy client is looking for support around disordered eating, it’s important for the therapist to get really curious about t ..read more

70: EMDR for Addiction [Why EMDR Works Series]
Zero Disturbance
by Kambria Evans, The Teaching & Learning EMDR Consultant
3M ago
When someone seeks treatment for addiction, the truth is that we’re not actually treating the addiction; we’re treating the brain’s associations with the behavior that feels addictive. We’re delinking the positive feelings someone has with things like alcohol, compulsive shopping, smoking, gambling, and binge eating,, and looking for alternative ways for the person to have those same positive feelings. Essentially, we’re desensitizing the positive (addictive) behavior. When working with clients in my own practice and when consulting with other therapists, I use Robert Miller’s Feeling-State P ..read more

69: EMDR for Winter Holidays [Why EMDR Works Series]
Zero Disturbance
by Kambria Evans, The Teaching & Learning EMDR Consultant
3M ago
The holiday season can be incredibly stressful and triggering for many reasons, from trying to defy our natural inclination to hibernate in the winter, to how our brains link to challenging events from all the holidays that came before. But you don’t have to dread the holidays or family get-togethers, if you can understand where your feelings come from and how to work through them. We store so many memories in our bodies; some of these memories we know and remember, but others happened before we can remember or realize that they were traumatic. Things like a parent not speaking up when another ..read more

68: EMDR for Depression [Why EMDR Works Series]

The true definition (and outcomes) of depression goes far beyond what we typically think of: someone pulling away from loved ones, extreme sadness, maybe even feeling suicidal. But the truth is that depression is often a symptom of trauma, and can manifest in individuals in so many different ways. It may be a collapse after extreme anxiety that we may not even notice because we’ve normalized living life at a high cadence. When we crash into depression, we may feel safe because we learned that there’s safety in that. However, we may not recognize this initially because that learning happened in ..read more

Ep 37: Decreasing anxiety with Standard Protocol: Case conceptualization options in EMDR
Zero Disturbance
by Kambria Evans, The Teaching & Learning EMDR Consultant
4M ago
If your experience as a newly trained EMDR therapist was anything like mine, you probably started to see that “sticking to the script” to navigate through standard protocol was confusing when working with complex trauma clients. Why? Because the beauty of standard protocol often needs interweaves, parts work, and more Phase 2 preparation (things not in "the script") in order to flow. And while some basic trainings teach us these things, many of us don't get to learn these more advanced topics in the beginning of our EMDR training.  And far too often, the lack of understanding to ..read more

Ep 33: ‘It’s Been Said Before’- Barriers to Passive Income
Zero Disturbance
by Kambria Evans, The Teaching & Learning EMDR Consultant
4M ago
I was recently speaking with a consultee about her experience with veterans and I asked if she would be willing to share her unique perspective. Her response was, “what am I going to say that hasn’t already been said?”   This got me thinking. Why don’t people create content? It’s not because they don’t have ideas or because they’re not smart. I realized it’s not just about the content, but it’s about how it is delivered.  Each of us is a combination of all of the people and voices that we have taken in. This creates a unique perspective within us that no one else has. Each of us has ..read more

Ep 30: Three types of teachers
Zero Disturbance
by Kambria Evans, The Teaching & Learning EMDR Consultant
4M ago
Whether you're a therapist, a supervisor, or a consultant, you are a teacher in every space. We cannot separate teaching from anything you do in the healing space.  In today's episode, we get curious about the three kinds of teachers: the content dump truck; the teacher who knows it and has done it well; and the teacher who knows it, has done it, and can share it relationally, emotionally, and transformatively.  As we review the pros and cons of each, we land in an agreement with ourselves about what kind of teacher we will commit to being.   Interested in becomin ..read more
