What is EMDR?
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. It is an evidence-based therapeutic approach developed by Francine Shapiro and is often used for the treatment of trauma. EMDR uses a standardized set of procedures and clinical protocols to incorporate dual focus of attention and alternating bilateral visual, auditory, and/or tactile stimulation to help a client return to normal information processing and integration. For more information on what EMDR is, click here: http://socialwork.buffalo.edu/continuing-education/training-registration/special-training-projects/emdr-training.html
EMDR is an evidence-based practice as listed by SAMHSA. The American Psychiatric Association, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs, and the Dept. of Defense designated EMDR as a treatment of choice for Post-Traumatic Stress. A Purdue University study found that 84% of their college sophomores experienced at least one traumatic event in their life. 90% of mental health clients have experienced multiple traumas in their life.
How is this program Different from other EMDR trainings?
This is a hands-on clinical skills training for using EMDR and integrating it with your psychotheraphy approach. This top-of-the-line training program exceeds EMDRIA’s criteria for EMDR basic training and features. This training program involves lectures, demonstrations, in-class practice, and on-the-job practice with your clients. It is an experiential training and part of the learning is to practice the interventions with other participants.
What will I learn?
Participants will be able to:
– Identify clients who are ready for EMDR and prepare them
– Conduct an EMDR session
– Problem-solve a session that is not going smoothly
– Use EMDR with a wide range of clients whose presenting problems are in some way related to trauma and/or loss
– Integrate EMDR into a comprehensive trauma-informed treatment approach
Who May Attend?
EMDR training is open to mental health professionals who are licensed (certified or registered) by their state for independent practice. The training is also open to mental health professionals on a licensure track, with a letter of support from their supervisor.
