EMDR 3-Day Intensive Training: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Including Neuroscience, Diagnosis, and Effective Practices for Successful Trauma Treatment
EMDR 3-Day Intensive Training: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Including Neuroscience, Diagnosis, and Effective Practices for Successful Trauma Treatment

Where:   NEW YORK, NY

When:  Monday, March 11, 2019 - Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Intended Audience

This workshop is intended for masters- and doctoral-level clinicians experienced in working with trauma. In this course, you will learn and practice alternating bilateral stimulation into two distinct types of psychotherapy sessions; development and installation of internal resources; and reprocessing of traumatic material. This course assumes requisite knowledge of, and experience with, a traumatized population (i.e., clients with underlying simple or complex PTSD regardless of presenting issues).

Participants will leave the workshop with both theoretical knowledge of the current trauma paradigm as well as the practical “hands on” experience of participating in EMDR for resourcing and reprocessing trauma.

Course Description:

Join trauma specialist, author and national trainer, Linda Curran, BCPC, LPC, CAC-D, CCDP, for this intensive 3-day EMDR training that will provide you the knowledge and skills needed to use EMDR safely and effectively with your trauma clients. Through lecture, live and videotaped demonstrations, and experiential exercises, this training will provide participants with an in-depth knowledge of trauma theory, principles, diagnosis, and treatment.

Beginning with an overview of the physiological nature of trauma, through current research on neuroscience, Linda will guide you through the traumatic stress disorders – those included in and excluded from the DSM-5®’s newly-created classification, Trauma and Stressor-related Disorders:
  • Acute Trauma Disorder
  • Simple PTSD
  • Complex PTSD
  • PTSD Dissociative Subtype
  • PTSD Preschool Subtype
  • Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD)
  • Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

For all but single-incident trauma, the tri-phasic model is today’s state-of-the-art treatment approach. You will learn each phase of the treatment including its therapeutic goals and the clinical tools to reach those goals. Most importantly, you will:
  • Learn EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Skills
  • Practice using these new tools in a safe and supervised environment
  • Learn this dynamic, comprehensive training equipped to improve outcomes with traumatized clients

This course is not affiliated with EMDRIA and does not qualify towards EMDRI credits or training.
Intended Audience

This workshop is intended for masters- and doctoral-level clinicians experienced in working with trauma. In this course, you will learn and practice alternating bilateral stimulation into two distinct types of psychotherapy sessions; development and installation of internal resources; and reprocessing of traumatic material. This course assumes requisite knowledge of, and experience with, a traumatized population (i.e., clients with underlying simple or complex PTSD regardless of presenting issues).

Participants will leave the workshop with both theoretical knowledge of the current trauma paradigm as well as the practical “hands on” experience of participating in EMDR for resourcing and reprocessing trauma.
Objectives:

  1. Evaluate the biological nature of trauma and how trauma is stored in the body and limbic system, creating physical and psychological symptoms to better understand your clients.
  2. Differentiate between sympathetic (activated) freeze response and the parasympathetic (deactivated) dorsal vagal immobilization response your clients experience.
  3. Distinguish between the following types of traumatic stress: normal, prolonged, complex and developmental and articulate treatment considerations for each.
  4. Ascertain the clinical implications of traumatic stress symptomology, including hyperarousal, affect dysregulation, dissociation, body memories, and flashbacks.
  5. Employ effective somatic techniques to reduce/eliminate client’s body memories, “flashbacks” and dissociation.
  6. Summarize the landmark study: Adverse Childhood Experiences Study and understand the ten adverse childhood experiences studied as they related to clinical diagnosis and assessment.
  7. Evaluate the clinical presentation of the following attachment styles as it relates to your clinical assessment: secure vs insecure; insecure; organized vs insecure disorganized.
  8. Designate two different treatment strategies, once attachment style has been ascertained, based on your client’s attachment style.
  9. Demonstrate strategies to help clients build skills to be prepared to process trauma via EMDR, including safety within the therapeutic alliance and skills for self-regulation.
  10. Determine when/if your client is prepared to safely process trauma memories via EMDR.
  11. Create and employ client-driven imagery for safety and containment during trauma processing.
  12. Utilize clinical techniques to help with grounding and centering traumatized clients in-session.
  13. Prepare clients with various trauma tools; mindfulness, guided imagery and meridian-based techniques to decrease client’s arousal levels and modulate affect.
  14. Analyze and critique the original eight phases of EMDR’s standard protocol (Shapiro) as it relates to clinical treatment.
  15. Determine Parnell’s four essential elements of each EMDR session and how it relates to client treatment.
  16. Practice under supervision Parnell’s Modified EMDR protocol to prepare for work with your clients in-session.
  17. Practice under supervision the skill for resourcing a client with imaginal resources prior to processing traumatic material.
  18. Practice under supervision the trauma processing modality and EMDR tools for processing traumatic memories with your clients.
  19. Utilize and practice two “cues of safety” with your clients based on Steve Porges’ Polyvagal Theory.
