EMDR: A Novel Approach For Treating Trauma with Dr. Steven Dansiger

Dr. Steven Dansiger is a rocker who got sober in the late 80’s and then became a sought after clinician, writer and meditation teacher. He became a master EMDR therapist and provider of EMDR Basic Training and Advanced Topics Courses as Senior Faculty with the Institute for Creative Mindfulness. He is the creator and founder of the MET(T)A Protocol (Mindfulness and EMDR Treatment Template for Agencies), a design for addictions and mental health agency treatment using Buddhist Mindfulness and EMDR Therapy as the theoretical orientation and primary clinical practice. It is now in use in multiple agencies throughout the country. He has been practicing Buddhist mindfulness for over 30 years (including a one year residency at a Zen monastery), and teaches dharma classes in Los Angeles and other centers internationally. He is the author of Clinical Dharma: A Path for Healers and Helpers and Mindfulness for Anger Management: Transformative Skills for Overcoming Anger and Managing Powerful Emotions.  He is also the co-author (with Jamie Marich) of EMDR Therapy and Mindfulness for Trauma-Focused Care. Additionally, Dr. Dansiger is the coauthor of Trauma and the 12 Steps: A Trauma Responsive Workbook & Trauma and the 12 Steps: Daily Meditations & Reflections – both companion pieces to the newly updated Trauma & The 12 Steps by Dr. Jamie Marich. He avidly blogs and podcasts on topics related to mental health, recovery, and mindfulness. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a fairly new, nontraditional type of psychotherapy. It’s growing in popularity, particularly for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
