EMDR Therapy Refresher:

Because You Don’t Know What It Is You Forgot

March 3, 2021

*In Person

Cortland, OH 44410



Description: Many clinicians, after being trained in EMDR Therapy, fail to continue to utilize the 8 phase protocol and have difficulty conceptualizing and applying the AIP model with clinical issues. Know you are not alone. This interactive workshop will provide a review of EMDR Therapy, the 3 pronged approach, and the 8 phase protocol, with an emphasis in case conceptualization through the AIP lens. Attendees will participate in focused case conceptualization exercises and develop target sequencing plans with intricate clinical scenarios related to complex trauma and PTSD, grief, dissociation, addiction and co-occurring disorders. Feel more comfortable utilizing EMDR Therapy and gain confidence applying these concepts with your more difficult clinical presentations.

*This program is open to clinicians who are at least partially trained in EMDR Therapy. It is recommended that you complete the full EMDR basic training and have experience in using EMDR with this client population before using this material. Eligibility for EMDRIA Credits is restricted to those who have completed an EMDRIA-Approved Basic EMDR Training. Attendees who are partially trained in EMDR are not eligible to receive EMDRIA Credits. This program is approved for 6 Continuing Education Credits through EMDRIA for those fully trained in EMDR Therapy. EC Program Approval Number: #20002-01
