Even though my son is the only one in our family with food allergies, it impacts all of us. His anxiety was paralyzing, and eating out and traveling were very stressful, and at times not possible. We tried helping him with his anxiety and panic attacks for about a year and a half with a more traditional therapy approach with little improvement. However, after only one session of EMDR with Sharon, he was feeling less anxious. After just three sessions with her, he was like a completely different person. I wish we had sought this treatment sooner. We are so grateful to Sharon and all that this has done for our son. Although his food allergies and the responsibility and realities that come with it will always be part of his life, now we can dine out, travel and eat away from home without the anxiety and panic. As a parent, to have something make a noticeable and immediate improvement in your child's life is amazing. We are so grateful.  Scroll down for more . . .

More about your instructor

Sharon Schwartz, LICSW and certified EMDR therapist, is a leading practitioner of EMDR-Therapy with children and families. She is known for making EMDR easier by developing the innovative "2-Square" protocol. Sharon positions "2-Square" intervention, an internal processing experience*, as "Subconscious Reprocessing Therapy™ (SRT)". She is gifted at teaching both the theory and practice of this uniquely effective EMDR protocol. Sharon achieves the goal of making EMDR easier to learn, adapting "Slaying-the-Monster/Dragon", in a protocol that "just works". She uses 2-Square in her clinical practice every day making her especially qualified in both teaching and consulting on it's use. In this distance learning course, you learn the fundamentals in a fun, practical,  live workshop format. She will help you understand how this EMDR is different from therapies and tools you may know and use such as CBT, TFT, IFS, and others. Sharon also teaches the advanced 2-Square² in ther live, "Little Voices World Tour" on-site workshops where she amplifies on the fundamentals with children and adolsecents, as well as extends the protocol for use with adults.

*Thanks to Dr. Bessel van der Kolk for expanding the understanding of the sub-conscious realm in which  EMDR works "symbolically". He, along with other prominent doctors have published scientific studies that establish EMDR as a preferred therapy for an increasing number of behavorial problems. It is for this reason that we often refer to this EMDR client experience as "Sub-cognitive Reprocessing Therapy™ (SRT)". This easy pneumonic will help you think of it separately from other therapies, such as CBT, TFT, etc .

Are you challenged doing therapy with children & adolescents?

Let the healing take root

When you put this therapy technique to work, you will be amazed at the results. As the client heals, their sense of who they really are emerges. They are able to access memories and negative cognitions that are holding them back. They are able to reprocess those memories, form new positive thoughts about themselves, break old patterns, and seek different outcomes they truly want. As they change before your eyes, their joy and success willl be a true mutual reward.

Your role as therapist in delivering this EMDR intervention is to act as the stenographer as they rewrite their past memories and develop stories about who they are now and what experiences they can manifest for themselves in the future. Enjoy this experience as you watch your clients heal and grow.

*About symptoms & treatment

Symptoms: 2-Square is effective for use in cases of panic disorder, PTSD, simple trauma, complex trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, body image issues, phobias, distressing memories,  bad dreams, OCD, and other like and similar problems.

Treatment: Clients treated using this protocol feel restored and better able to feel for themselves and for others. The practical method combines drawing and story telling with EMDR. The protocol works with children as young as 5 to heal at warp speed "so they can enjoy life's milk & honey" (quote from Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, leading advocate for EMDR-Therapy).
