In this workshop for licensed professionals, you have the opportunity to refresh your technique and review EMDR protocols and procedures, consult on difficult cases, watch demonstrations, and practice EMDR in small supervised groups. Instruction focuses on using EMDR with complex cases, resource development and installation, target development, and cognitive interweaves.

Through lecture, hands-on practice, and demonstrations, we learn to:

  • Cite protocols and procedures for using EMDR with a wide range of diagnostic categories
  • Identify client selection criteria and cautions necessary for safe use of EMDR
  • Practice techniques for working with blocked processing and abreactions (catharsis)
  • Employ imaginal and cognitive interweaves
  • Use EMDR with adults traumatized as children
  • Review standard protocol and procedure
  • Describe modified protocol and when to use it
  • Apply techniques for target development
  • Use techniques for resource development and installation
  • Practice the advanced use of interweaves
  • Work more effectively with complex cases
