Since its inception over 30 years ago, EMDR has evolved from a treatment of single incident Post Traumatic Stress as originally developed by Francine Shapiro, to a sophisticated interpersonal form of psychotherapy. Advances in neuroscience, including neural network development and the influence
mirroring neurons have on the therapeutic relationship and treatment outcomes have expanded EMDR’s initial protocols and procedures to a holistic approach to case conceptualization and treatment. Based upon an adaptive information processing model supported by neuroscience, processing has evolved from a traumatic incident desensitization to neural network consolidation covering one’s entire lifespan. This workshop will up-date all EMDR clinicians from those having dropped using EMDR because of its rigid
adherence to protocols and procedures to the very experienced who want to expand their EMDR skills.
There is no known commercial support nor conflict of interest for this program.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Discuss the evolution of EMDR from single incident PTSD desensitization to an interpersonal form of psychotherapy
2. Describe the formulation of memory
3. Explain the Adaptive Information Process (AIP) model from a neurological perspective
4. Compare functional, isolated and frozen memories from a neurological, AIP perspective
5. Compare implicit and explicit networks and how they apply to EMDR treatment planning
6. Explain the symptom focused targeting sequence plan
7. Explain the difference between Cognitions and Core Beliefs
8. Discuss 5 different presenting complaint presentations and how to covert them to the symptom focused targeting sequence plan
9. List the differences between EMD^, EMDr, EMDR
10. Discuss the interpersonal approach to EMDR processing
11. Describe how the interpersonal approach facilitates clinical interventions (aka: cognitive interweaves)
12. Discuss how to use the interpersonal approach and the processing continuum: EMD^, EMDr, EMDR in helping clients stay within the window of tolerance
