Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is, perhaps, the most
exciting psychotherapeutic development in the past twenty years.
Research has repeatedly shown its effectiveness in treating Post
Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and led to EMDR being recommended for
treatment of PTSD by agencies in this country and abroad. In addition,
many clinicians have found EMDR to be effective with a variety of other
psychological problems and issues.
first part of the basic EMDR training will begin Thursday evening Oct.
9, (6:00 – 9) and continue all day Fri., Oct. 10, and Sat. Oct. 11
(9:00 - 5:30), with a half day follow-up Thurs. Nov. 6, from 6:00 –
9:00 pm. Participants (who must be licensed mental health professionals
or in a program leading to licensure) will learn about:
- The history of EMDR
- The strengths and weaknesses of the current research
- The eight phase treatment model needed to effectively implement EMDR
- How to select which clients are appropriate for EMDR and which are not
- How to weave EMDR into one’s existing therapeutic practice
is an experiential workshop combining lecture, demonstration, and
practice. Participants will spend approximately 35% of their time in
small groups experiencing EMDR as a client and implementing it as a
clinician. By the end of this first part, clinicians should be able to
implement EMDR with many, but not all, of their clients. After some
experience using EMDR, the second part of the training and ten hours of
group consultation (needed to complete the basic training in EMDR)
deepens the participant’s EMDR skills, teaches effective ways of
implementing EMDR with more difficult clients, and offers opportunities
to expand the use of EMDR into a wide variety of clinical areas.
