Annual Spring Conference

Western Mass EMDRIA 14th Annual Conference, UMASS Amherst, MA, Saturday, April 7, 2018, 8:30am-5:00pm

Thank you to all who attended our 14th Annual Conference on April 7, 2018 at UMass and special thanks to Dr. Ruth Lanius for flying in from London, Canada and sharing her neurobiology research and insights into trauma and EMDR! See you in the Fall!

Dr Lanius holds the Harris-Woodman Chair in Mind-Body Medicine at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario where she is also Professor of Psychiatry and director of the PTSD research unit. Dr. Lanius has authored more than 100 published papers and chapters and her work has been supported by the EMDR Research Foundation along with numerous other governmental and private funders. She has co-authored books on early life adversity and lifetime health and on the neuro-phenomenology and treatment of psychological trauma and has contributed to significant advances in the study of complex traumatization, dissociation, mindful reflection, and emotion regulation as well as the treatment of PTSD, dissociative disorders and other comorbid conditions. She lectures nationally and internationally on the neuroscience, psychobiology and treatment of traumatic stress.

Dr. Lanius’s Keynote will focus on results and discussion of her most recent treatment outcome study of the functional neuroanatomy of EMDR Therapy.  We are extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to welcome Dr. Lanius to Western Mass and look forward to featuring her presentation at the 2018 SOTA Conference.
