Approved for 6 EMDRIA Credits
Transgender and gender expansive (TGE) people sometimes experience gender dysphoria (GD) in addition to co-occurring issues like PTSD, depression, dissociation, etc. While EMDR therapy has been adapted to help people with diverse experiences and identities and can treat these comorbidities, there is no research to date using EMDR therapy for conceptualizing and treating GD-related distress among TGE people. This TGE-affirming training seeks to educate and train EMDR clinicians to help people who experience distress from GD reduce their suffering and increase their self-worth and resilience. By completing this training, participants will be able to: 1) conceptualize GD through an adaptive information processing (AIP) lens; 2) integrate minority stress and queer theories into EMDR therapy; 3) and implement a sequence of EMDR therapy for healing pathogenic experiences in TGE persons.
