The goal of the second part is to review the basic EMDR protocols and procedures taught in part 1. In addition, the second part will develop methods of treating more complex cases. This includes the development of treatment plans for complex cases, dynamics of trauma, and use of the cognitive interweave.

1. The student will be able to use EMDR as a form of psychotherapy for more complex cases. This means he/she will be able to use EMDR with clients with complex histories of abuse and dissociative symptoms.
Note: completion of part 2 of this course does not qualify a student to treat dissociative disorders if they have not had experience and training in treating them before taking this course. There is a difference between a dissociative symptom which is part of the traumatic experience and a dissociative disorder.
2. The student will have a complete understanding of the adaptive information processing model (AIP) and its relevance to EMDR.
3. The student will have a complete understanding of the components of the memory as used in EMDR treatment.
4. The student will have a complete understanding of the 8 phases of EMDR therapy.
5. The student will have a complete understanding of the criteria for the selection of an EMDR client. They will know what client is a good candidate for EMDR and which clients may be at risk during trauma therapy and may need more preparation.
6. The student will have a thorough understanding of how to gather a history and develop an EMDR treatment plan for complex cases.
7. The student will know the difference between treating PTSD and treating trauma.
8. The student will be able to use EMDR in a responsible manner by utilizing the procedures of EMDR as taught and maintaining client safety at all times.
9. The student will be able to explain EMDR to clients and prepare them for treatment.
