Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR Part One

This is an introductory workshop to the use of EMDR which will cover the applications of EMDR to PTSD and other disorders where a person’s earlier emotional experiences are etiologically related to the clients presentation.

EMDR Part One

EMDR Part Two

This is an advanced workshop that targets clients who have co-morbid diagnosis in addition to meeting criteria for PTSD. For those clients with PTSD with mild levels of dissociation and have substance abuse problems then level one training is sufficient. However if the co-morbid issues are severe enough to meet the criteria of a dissociative disorder, substance use dependence or borderline personality disorder then additional training is necessary. This workshop includes EMDR techniques such as cognitive interweaves, formulating a client according to AIP theory and specific EMDR protocols for complex issues.

EMDR Part Two

EMDR: 2.0

EMDR 2.0 is a treatment that makes a number of adjustments to the standard EMDR protocol. These adjustments are based on the clinical experience of the presenters and work best with patients with more complex PTSD who don’t respond to the standard protocol. The enhancements also arise from considering implications of working memory theory for clinical practice.
