Healing the Healers, 2015 (Iceland)

In "Healing with the Arts and EMDR" Rosa gave a presentation on trauma and its consequences and on how EMDR and the arts can be used to heal trauma in an efficient and enjoyable way. 

The presentation was followed by a workshop in which participants experienced a brief version of the EMDR and ARTS Protocol for healing trauma and increased well-being.  

Healing the Healers, 2013 (California)

Having participated in the annual international and multidisciplinary Conference "Healing the Healers" almost every year since its beginnings, Rosa started contributing as a presenter in 2013.

In the workshop entitled "Your Path" she led participants through an imaginary voyage from their past to an improved future using guided imagery and Art Therapy. Participants were invited to work on a pattern or behaviour they wanted to change by exploring it with art and their imagination, allowing new perspectives and solutions to emerge.

EMDR-Art Group therapy Heilsustofnun, Reahabilitation Centre (Iceland) 

In 2015 and 2016 Rosa ran "Trauma Processing" Workshops for guests. The workshop consisted of an educational component, explaining what trauma is, how it impacts our lives and how to recover from its sequela, and a therapeutic component. The group therapy was a combination of Expressive Arts Therapy (Dancing, Drama, Clay and Painting) and group EMDR.  

Willow Creek Academy, (Sausalito, California)

In 2011 and 2015, Rosa ran a series of Workshops/Groups at an elementary school in Sausalito California. The aim was to settle discord that had formed between various groups at the school. The methods used were art therapy, poetry therapy, dance and movement therapy and Mindfulness training.
