The strategies of expressive arts therapy, especially when taught within the framework of mindfulness, can prove useful to trauma therapists practicing in a variety of modalities. For EMDR therapists, mindful application of expressive arts strategies bolsters the possibilities for how they can serve clients in Phase 2 (Preparation) and Phase 7 (Closure). Expressive arts practices can also better equip EMDR therapists for a myriad of issues that present themselves in navigating Phases 3-6 with complex trauma clients, specifically in working with dissociation and handling abreaction. In this workshop, participants are briefly oriented to the fundamentals of expressive arts therapy approach and the definitions of mindfulness. Participants are then instructed in how to facilitate an expressive arts process to teach mindfulness strategies. Mindfulness skills not only assist in the preparation phase, they can allow the client to widen their affect window of tolerance throughout the phases of EMDR therapy.
