14 EMDRIA Credits
This online series will review the fundamentals of EMDR therapy beginning with the neurobiology of trauma, then moving into model, method and mechanism of treatment. This review will incorporate the perinatal mental health lens when considering all phases of EMDR therapy. It will introduce learners to the Three Core Tasks parents face during the perinatal period (Davis & Stein, 2003), namely: 1. Development of Parental Identity for the current baby(ies), 2. Managing Emotions, and 3. Managing Relationships. This comprehensive framework guides clinicians around history-taking, case conceptualization, treatment planning, and target selection, allowing them more nuance and specificity as they assess ruptures in the perinatal period. Applying and practicing EMDR’s 3-prongs and 8-phases, the lens of adaptive information processing, and the guiding framework of the Three Core Tasks, attendees will hone their clinical conceptualization skills, which will guide their decision making around the preparation and resourcing phase of EMDR as well as treatment planning and target selection.
