Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is, perhaps, the most exciting psychotherapeutic development in the past twenty years. Research has repeatedly shown its effectiveness in treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and led to EMDR being recommended for treatment of PTSD by agencies in this country and throughout the world. In addition, many clinicians have found EMDR to be effective with a variety of other psychological problems and issues.
The expanded first part of the basic three part EMDR training will begin Thur. Eve., Oct. 3, from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. All day Fri. Oct. 4, and Sat. Oct. 5, from 9:00 - 5:30 in Manhattan with a half day follow-up Thur. evening, Nov. 7 from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Participants (who must be licensed mental health professionals or in a program leading to licensure) will learn about:
* The history of EMDR
* The strengths and weaknesses of the current research
* The eight phase treatment model needed to effectively implement EMDR
* How to select which clients are appropriate for EMDR and which are not
* How to weave EMDR into oneís existing therapeutic practice
This is an experiential workshop combining lecture, demonstration, and practice. Participants will spend approximately 35% of their time in small groups experiencing EMDR as a client and implementing it as a clinician. By the end of this first part, clinicians should be able to implement EMDR with many, but not all, of their clients. After some experience using EMDR, the second part and third parts of the training (needed to complete the basic training in EMDR) deepens the participantís EMDR skills, teaches effective ways of implementing EMDR with more difficult clients, and offers opportunities to expand the use of EMDR into different clinical areas.
