Course Details

This EMDR-based on-demand course reviews key techniques for applying EMDR therapy to recent traumatic events. Participants will develop a framework for case conceptualization to determine client readiness for EMDR interventions. We will review common presentations following a recent traumatic event and how to determine client readiness for EMDR interventions. We will review five resourcing techniques for stabilization following a recent traumatic event.

Trainees will learn EMD and EMDr, as these techniques are commonly applied interventions with recent events presentations. Participants will learn how EMD and EMDr may be applied to promote stabilization or within a recent event protocol. We will learn the three most commonly utilized EMDR protocols for processing recent traumatic events: REP, R-TEP, and PRECI. We will review case vignettes to apply theory to practice and integrate learning.
