We are excited to announce the line-up of plenary speakers! Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., is a distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine and a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection. She will be speaking on psychoneuroimmunology, neuroscience and EMDR. In addition, she’ll present a workshop on illness, change and grief. Vincent Felitti, MD, is co-Principal Investigator of the Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) Study with ongoing collaborative research between the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program and the Centers for Disease Control. The ACE study assesses the health risks and disease burden of over one million individual adults, one-by-one. Dr. Felitti is enthusiastic about the potential of EMDR to help mediate the impact of adverse experiences on health. Robert Stickgold, Ph.D., has long-held interest in the underlying mechanisms of EMDR. His research at Harvard Medical School seeks to describe the nature of cognition during sleep, and to explain the role of sleep in memory and emotional processing. He will be presenting recent updates regarding the mechanisms involved with EMDR reprocessing and the function of memory.
