Discovered by Dr. Francine Shapiro, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is one of the most researched and utilized methods in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other forms of human distress connected to trauma. Completing our full basic training approved by the EMDR International Association is a multi-tiered process of which this three-day training is your second part. Part II Training (3 Days= 21 total hours of Lecture and Practicum): Enhanced practicum content, covering best practices for using EMDR Therapy with special populations and in the tricky scenarios of clinical practice; advanced content on ethics and neurobiology also covered, in addition to working with the art of case conceptualization. Day 4 of the training focuses on ethical practice, learning about interweaves, appropriate use of modifications (according to the EMDRIA definition of EMDR). and applying modifications for special populations. By the end of Day 4, participants will have had the chance to practice supervised implementation of some of these techniques. Day 5 instructs participants on specific protocols/targeting sequences, best practices with special populations and clinical situations, and accessing specialty resources and protocols for variously noted populations. By the end of Day 5, participants will experience supervised practice of targeting sequences/protocol for identified special populations/situations. In Day 6 participants will review the neurobiology of trauma, present a clinical case study through the EMDR Therapy/AIP framework, complete supervised practice of practice elements, discuss the characteristics of a strong EMDR therapist, and develop a plan for continued consultation.
