2.5 EMDRIA Credits
Through the 8 phases and three-pronged conceptualization of EMDR therapy, the individual client’s unique presentation including processing speed, short-term memory, working memory, emotional intelligence, intellectual level, and mentalizing proficiencies impact the treatment progression. This online course will focus on enhancing the therapist’s conceptualization of each phase of EMDR therapy treatment with consideration of how the client’s processing speed may change the flow of therapy; how the client’s level of intelligence and memory impact treatment; and finally, how mentalizing impacts trauma reprocessing. Furthermore, the client’s developmental mastery, attachment experiences, and Adverse Child Experiences influence how the phases of treatment unfold.
