The MOSAIC Therapy

(Eye Movement and Alternate Stimulation for Brain Integration)

MOSAIC is a unique combination of neuroscience and psychotherapy with sensory stimulation to alleviate psychological suffering linked to painful memories. Beyond EMDR therapy, by using the physiological activation of the brain, MOSAIC psychotherapy refocuses the process of change on the mobilisation of the strengths and solutions already present in each person in a gentle way rather than in pain.

The clinical interview consists of 4 precise steps, taught in Mosaic as the basis for all training

1) The MOSAIC interview (solutionist and experiential goal setting, limiting target, desired internal sensation),
2) Reconnection loop,
3) Experiencing the benefits of change in other contexts,
4) Debriefing, Posttalk, Task prescription.

MOSAIC core course

MOSAIC Therapy focuses on the solutions already present in the patient’s experience, by activating body sensations. It offers a comfort and quality of intervention by preserving the patient and the practitioner from any risk of vicarious trauma.
In the session, you avoid dissociative phenomena, abreactions and suffering.
The protocol is rigorous and facilitates the learning of the method and the conduct of subsequent sessions.

Module(s) without pre-requisites

Transpersonal psychology is concerned with non-ordinary states of consciousness: rapture, a sense of connection with the Universe, an acute awareness of one’s inner self, transcendence and self-transcendence. These states are said to represent the actualisation of the higher needs of the human being, of what exists beyond the personality and its conditioning. Transpersonal invites the practitioner to access a higher degree of spirituality and consciousness which necessarily implies the abandonment of the ego

Transpersonal psychology (3 days)
