Course Description & Educational Goals

The Basics of EMDR Therapy workshop will focus on the foundational elements involved in Francine Shapiro’s 8-Phase Protocol: history taking, preparation, assessment, desensitization, installation, body scan, closure, and re-evaluation. Beginning with a symptom-focused approach to case conceptualization and treatment planning, special attention will be given to attachment organization, the Theory of Structural Dissociation of the Personality, bilateral stimulation, and the 3-Pronged Approach to target sequencing of traumatic memories and current and/or future triggers.  The objective of this workshop is to give participants a basic theoretical and methodological understanding of how EMDR Therapy benefits clients from a variety of attachment orientations and trauma histories.

In EMDR Therapy, we approach trauma and symptoms of post-traumatic stress as an injury of the brain, a neurological malfunction of the Adaptive Information Processing system. As such, we honor/view a client’s defenses and maladaptive coping mechanisms as the body’s protective and natural response to unnatural situations.

The approach to all aspects of EMDR Therapy presented herein, from history taking and case conceptualization to the reprocessing of past, present, and future targets, is extremely thorough and, as such, clinically sound. Rather than simply treating the ‘problem of the day’ or ‘worst memory’, a symptom informed approach to EMDR Therapy, grounded in the Adaptive Information Processing model, requires that the clinician consider current symptoms within the larger context of the client’s history, attachment organization, and any additional contributory factors that have impacted present day functioning. This presentation also advocates for a comprehensive preparation phase that appropriately resources the client prior to reprocessing past traumatic memories.
