Workshop

Transforming Trauma With EMDR (Parts 1 & 2)

A 7-Day Professional Training

Jul 14 - Jul 21 2017 Rhinebeck, NY

We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

Join Laurel Parnell in this 7-day professional training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a powerful therapeutic method for healing trauma-based problems.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful therapeutic method for healing trauma-based problems. Shedding new light on trauma survival—including sexual and physical abuse, accident and surgical trauma, and grief—EMDR is opening the doors of the heart to genuine spiritual transformation. Through lecture, hands-on practice, and demonstrations, we learn:

  • Protocols and procedures for using EMDR with a wide range of diagnostic categories
  • Client selection criteria and cautions necessary for safe use of EMDR
  • Techniques for working with blocked processing and abreactions (catharsis)
  • Use of imaginal and cognitive interweaves
  • How to use EMDR with adults traumatized as children
  • Methods for developing inner resources used for interweaves, ego strengthening, and client closure
  • How to integrate EMDR into clinical practice with a range of clients and presenting problems

Upon completion of this workshop participants will be better able to:

  • 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

Attendance is limited to mental health professionals who have a master’s degree or higher in the mental health field and are licensed or certified through a state or national board, which authorizes independent practice. There are also submission requirements; please view the More Information section for further details.
