Meet Dana ELKEN Terrell, LCSW, EAC

Since 1997 Dana Elken Terrell, LCSW, EAC brought her decades of practice of Bowen Family Systems Theory into her practice of EMDR therapy.  By 2013 she reported her single case study research at the EMDR International Conference in Denver, Colorado.  She demonstrated that her client’s* emotional maturity could increase 10.7 points according to the Differentiation of Self Scale.  Murray Bowen only believed very modest improvements (he used the word “microscopic”) were possible in one lifetime.  Even so,  he said even small progress would make a major difference in one’s life course. Dana thinks Bowen would have been stunned to see such a significant result in one year.

Now, she has a full-time private practice in San Diego, California. She travels around the country hosting her iBE Therapy workshops. And she has just published her first book When I Do Relationship So Right How Do They Go So Wrong: Using Emotional Maturity to Transform Your Mind, Your Relationships, and the Generations to Come
