Live Webinar

Approved for 7 EMDRIA Credits

All mental health clinicians work with trauma as trauma is implicated in every mental health disorder. Thus, understanding The Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP)- what trauma is, how trauma occurs and symptoms and behaviors of when it does are essential to providing thorough assessments, accurate treatment planning and appropriate therapeutic interventions. This live webinar will not only focus on these aspects, but we will take a closer look at the effects of trauma on the LGBTQ+ community. During EMDR phase I it is important to ask about gender, client’s terminology, experiences with and relationship to being in the LGBTQ+ community. In phase 2 we can ask about good experiences and positive attributes a client has gained from being in the community and install them as resources. In phases 3-8 we concentrate on relationship attunement, cultural inclusion (examples- cultural oriented options on the NC/PC list and guiding clients to not say things out loud if they don’t want to), We will touch on the chemistry of the brain and body along with the Polyvagal Theory and memory reconsolidation as it relates to EMDR and explaining EMDR to clients.

Presenters: Kriss Jarecki, LCSW & William Koehler, Ph.D.
