Approved for 2 EMDRIA Credits
Prevention is easier than overcoming injury. Existing pre-trauma programs address general mental well-being but aren’t effective enough when people experience an actual trauma. What is needed is resources that assist in processing a traumatic experience: A Pre-Trauma Training to strengthen emotional elasticity in people. Francine Shapiro developed EMDR and discusses the protocol of preparation for emotional stability and sense of control as important factors for overcoming trauma. Phase 2 Preparation work, including increasing healthy habits, stress management skills, and adding skills for emotional stability, will lead to emotional resiliency and decreased reactivity. This will allow people to remain effective in their work, and able to work through trauma quicker if affected by a traumatic experience.
