ELIGIBILITY: Participants in the training must be Licensed Mental Health Professionals (hold a clinical license in psychiatry, psychology, social work or counseling from their state) or be a state-registered intern or a student in a graduate educational program that will eventually make them eligible to obtain one of those licenses. Students and interns must have at least six months of clinical experience under the supervision of a state-licensed Mental Health clinician, under whose license that clinical experience has been obtained. The supervisor is not required to be trained in EMDR. Those under supervision must have their supervisor email firstname.lastname@example.org stating eligibility/preparedness and supervisor’s acknowledgement that EMDR facilitators/consultants do not provide supervision. For graduate students, the supervisor also needs to state in their estimation of the applicant’s clinical skills that they believe the applicant is sufficiently prepared to take this training. EMDR clinicians who have previously completed an EMDRIA-approved EMDR training can take Part 1 or Part 2 for half price, space permitting. This does not include participation in the practicum other than playing the observer role. For more information, please email email@example.com NOTE: This course includes several facilitated practicums in which participants will have the opportunity to practice what they are learning and to have the experience of being a “client” when other class members take the role of the therapist. If you do not feel psychologically stable enough to participate fully in this practicum as “client” you should not register for this workshop. If you are currently a client in psychotherapy, please consult your therapist about whether he or she thinks you can safely participate fully in this workshop.
DESCRIPTION OF PART 2: This course is Part 2 of an EMDR Basic Training approved by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA). In addition to Part 1 and Part 2, 10 hours of group consultation completes the training requirement of the EMDR International Association. All hours must be completed within 12 months of beginning. Please note: This particular training is 52 hours due to added information on client preparation for EMDR. The EMDRIA requirement is 50 hours. There are several group consultations to choose from via zoom. The fee for most groups is $55/hr, dates tbd. You will receive a list of consultants approved by EMDRIA, Gina Ornelas, LMFT and Philip Manfield, PhD. on Sunday afternoon of the training. The material that is taught in Part 2 includes: EMDR case conceptualization, review of the 8 phase EMDR procedure, advanced Cognitive Interweave, advanced Float Back, and Advanced Resourcing. The course includes facilitated practicum, allowing participants a hands-on experience with EMDR.
PART 2 PROGRAM LEARNING OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to: Identify and describe the elements of a well delineated target that are most likely to make processing of client memories successful. List some of the problems that occur for client processing when a target is not well chosen or congruent. List some of the more common cognitive interweaves that can unblock or accelerate client processing to an adaptive resolution. Describe other advanced techniques to unblock blocked processing during the Desensitization and Reprocessing phase of EMDR so that the process will be as minimally painful to the client as possible. Describe specific protocols for using EMDR to resolve the following conditions clients commonly suffer from: early onset PTSD, complex phobias, and panic disorders. Describe resourcing and how it prepares a client for successful trauma processing. Describe advanced techniques for closing down an incomplete EMDR session so that clients experience minimal disturbance between sessions, including guided fantasy and the container technique. State that they had the opportunity to practice EMDR in the workshop with other class members so that they could hone their EMDR skills before attempting to use them with clients.
