Our capacity to experience felt safety is impacted by our earliest relationships and the relational frameworks that they produce. When integrated within EMDR treatment, the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) has the potential to help clients of all ages in the process of repatterning dysregulated nervous system states manifesting from unresolved developmental trauma.
In this webinar, Unyte Health’s Clinical Advisory Board member Jillian Hosey will join leading EMDR trainer and SSP Provider, Ana Gómez, to address how the SSP fits within an EMDR framework, the adaptive information processing system model (AIP) and other theoretical paradigms such as attachment theory.
In this on-demand session, Jillian and Ana will discuss the cultivation of safety in the therapeutic relationship with children affected by attachment wounding. We’ll explore how integrating the SSP supports EMDR clinicians and caregivers who are working with children on their journey to restoring synchronicity and coherence.
Join us as we discuss the following questions:
- How can the SSP be incorporated into the eight phases of EMDR treatment when working with attachment wounds?
- What does cultivating safety look like within a therapeutic relationship and how can the caregiver be involved as an active therapeutic partner?
- Through an EMDR lens, in what ways can we consider client attachment history and what strategies can be used in the preparation phase? How can the SSP support that process?

Discover the Safe and Sound Protocol
Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges, the SSP is a listening therapy designed to unlock your client’s ability to think, feel, and connect better through nervous system regulation.
The SSP isn’t simply five hours of music; it’s a comprehensive approach to healing. This unique listening therapy is a journey that brings together client, therapist, and the SSP to create a safe space for brain and body integration and healing to achieve impactful, long-lasting results.
