EMDR Therapy with Veterans: 

Healing the Soul Wound of Moral Injury 

with Daniel Doyle

February 12, 2022 

8:30am-3:00pm PST


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. 

This training will focus on the core issues of combat trauma, posttraumatic stress, and moral injury, and also on lesser understood issues of moral dilemmas, loss of meaning upon the return to civilian life, isolation, substance abuse, and hypervigilance. Participants will explore these issues as well as learning about specific approaches that can be helpful in assisting these clients with moving through the 8-Phase protocol successfully. This workshop will include both didactic learning, as well as small group exercises directed at increasing participants’ understanding of issues unique to veterans.

The emails presently come from noreply@notify.thinkific.com. Additionally, The Institute for Creative Mindfulness may send out emails from support@instituteforcreativemindfulness.com .

  • Professionalism: You will show up on time and be fully present for each session, acting in a professional manner.

You agree to refrain from all alcohol and illicit drug use during the training and agree to speak with your faculty member or an assistant if you anticipate that your impairment due to prescribed medications might pose a problem during the training. The faculty and staff reserve the right to remove trainees at any time if the trainee creates an unsafe or unprofessional environment for you or for other trainees, or for any other reason, at their sole discretion.

  • Confidentiality: There is no client relationship or other privilege that would create a duty rising to the level of clinical confidentiality in this training setting; however, you are expected to respect the confidentiality of other trainees in the group, and your trainer will explain the importance of confidentiality. Trainees who observe a problem with another trainee are expected to bring the problem to the lead trainer or other training staff. Similarly, if a staff member observes an issue with professionalism, they reserve the right to discuss that issue with the lead trainer.

  • Preparedness for Doing Your Own Work: Throughout the training, you will be expected to participate in a working practicum experience in the role of therapist, client, and observer. This means that you will be expected to do a small piece of your own, authentic clinical work. If you are currently in counseling or being treated for a mental health condition, it is recommended that you speak with your provider, alerting them that you are participating in the training. If you have received a major mental health diagnosis (past or present), you acknowledge that you are taking this training and engaging in this practicum at your own risk, and agree to alert faculty or training staff before or during the training if any complications arise. You acknowledge that everyone taking part in the practicum experience is new to EMDR therapy and agree to keep the space as safe as possible for all involved. If any problems arise, you agree to address them with faculty or staff members.
