Approved for 14 EMDRIA Credits
This workshop will focus on basic and advanced skills in adhering to EMDR therapy in the treatment of Emergency Responders exposed to trauma in the line of duty. The practice of caring for the emotional and physical needs of professionals exposed to life and death situations and the most difficult of human suffering takes its toll on those in the trenches. In these inimitable circumstances, the exposure can lead to direct traumas and/or vicarious trauma for the professional. By working in law enforcement, fire sciences, emergency services, 911 operators, emergency room staff (including doctors and nurses), child welfare workers, and even psychotherapists, these professionals experience direct or secondary trauma from their work environment. Case conceptualization will be presented through the lens of the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP) adhering to the 8 phases of EMDR therapy. This interactive workshop includes videos, and didactic material, to deepen participants’ understanding of how to implement EMDR therapy and enhance their skills in working with Emergency Responders with greatly familiarity in this unique culture.
Presenter: Robbie Adler-Tapia, Ph.D.
