We have been working with migraine and fibromyalgia for the last decade. Throughout these years we developed Special EMDR Protocols for treatment of Migraine and Fibromyalgia. We also conduct research to examine the protocols and find out that both protocols are effective in treatment of migraine and fibromyalgia. EMDR Treatment of Fibromyalgia has been awarded 25.000 Dollar by EMDRIA Research Awards.

In this workshop, the EMDR Protocols developed for Fibromyalgia and Migraine Treatment will be explained in detail and videos of full sessions will be shown.
