Description

If you are looking for a full review of the foundations of EMDR Therapy, you are in the right place. This course will help guide those who may have drifted away from their EMDR practice or did not get the Basic Training experience they had hoped for. If you want to build confidence in your EMDR Therapy skills and refresh yourself on foundations and basics, this training is for you! This course will review the Standard EMDR Protocol as it is most currently taught and used as a comprehensive psychotherapy. Case conceptualization through the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP) as informing treatment planning will be reviewed and illustrated through case material. Case examples will be used throughout to delineate simple PTSD from complex trauma to clearly understand the various treatment options that could unfold at each stage of the VIII phases of treatment. Clinical choice points will be taught regarding how and when to develop a targeting treatment plan and how to choose your entry point for processing. More titrated procedures for processing trauma material will be discussed/taught and included in the treatment options. 

 

This training is divided into eight modules and a bonus content section. The lectures will help therapists consider the following: how to assess current and past trauma, current relational stances, and developmental history; indicators for longer preparation stages with a host of additional, extended resources and tools; how to assist with greater affect regulation tailored to patient’s particular issue(s); building a treatment plan that is individually tailored and knowing when to modify that treatment plan if relevant issues emerge that require modification of the treatment plan. Special attention will be paid to common mistakes and how to avoid them. Each day, time will be spent reviewing/teaching/practicing protocols and procedures that are useful to have in one’s back pocket for clinical use as needed, such as EMD (Shapiro, F., Loving Eyes procedures (Knipe, J.), Constant Installation of Present Safety (Knipe, J), Complex Trauma Resourcing (Fisher, J).

  • Assess a client’s dual awareness to determine readiness for EMDR processing.

  • Apply window of tolerance principles to the assessment of client readiness for EMDR processing.

  • Utilize the Standard 3-prong protocol for complex PTSD.

  • Explain 2 or more techniques that can be used to resume blocked processing.

  • Identify dissociative symptoms that can arise spontaneously during processing and describe how to manage them.

  • Assess when to use the “Constant Installation of Present Orientation and Safety” CIPOS method with clients to access and resolve highly disturbing memory material.

  • Identify and apply the Back of the Head Scale to effectively determine a client’s orientation to present safety.

  • Identify 3 or more newer interventions to use when clients are ‘stuck’ in old adaptational/defensive styles and without compassion for their traumatized selves.
