Teepa Snow’s PAC certification:
Therapists with Positive Approach to Care (PAC) certification have specialized training in dementia, the progression, effective interventions, and skills training for caregivers.
Therapists with training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma. EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events toward healing occurs with mental processes. The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health. If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering. Once the block is removed, healing resumes. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.
Parts and Memory Certification:
Therapists trained in this technique use the parts of the person’s whole self that carry the painful life experiences and neutralizes them. In other words, parts of the whole person carry the painful memories and the memories are the targets for healing interventions. Healing is done by visualizations that neutralize the emotional energy connected to the memories.
