Learning the Craft of EMDR as a Psychotherapy
Have you taken the EMDR Basic Training but are struggling to integrate it into your practice?
Are you concerned about how to safely treat clients who have complex trauma?
Do you have questions about where to begin with clients who have multiple problems?
Do you struggle with whether or not some of your clients are ready for memory reprocessing?
Then this training is your best next step.
What Can You Expect?
Our Intermediate EMDR Training is about integrating this approach as a psychotherapy by helping our clients grow and change beyond symptom relief. It combines formal instruction with hands-on guided practice sessions to deepen your understanding of how to work with clients who have ongoing difficulties with self-esteem, relationships and self-regulation.
- take a deep dive into AIP case conceptualization and treatment planning by studying actual client cases and how they evolve over time.
- learn how to identify clinical choice points that are informed by the client’s needs and readiness to approach.
- learn how to track the moment-to-moment unfolding of experience during reprocessing so you can facilitate the client’s experience.
- practice under the guidance of experienced EMDR therapists to help you lean into trusting the process.
Why take this course?
EMDR therapy can be easy to learn but hard to do well. The protocols and the procedures are only one aspect of how EMDR is applied. Because our clients' struggles are often more complex and multi-faceted, we need to know how to map out the territory before we embark on the journey. And, as the journey unfolds, the landscape changes that require us to make clinical choices, and to be in collaboration with our clients as we consider what paths to take.
EMDR as a Broad-based Psychotherapy
Whether it's a recent traumatic event or ongoing problems in relationships at home and at work, this course takes us deeper into the client's developmental trauma. Not just about what happened, but what didn't happen that negatively impacted the client, leaving them to rely on their survival strategies in order to cope. This course will help you identify the areas our clients need to grow in order to be able to live life more fully - increase their capacity for curiosity and adventure, to be better able to take care of oneself and others, or to be part of something bigger than themselves.
