EMDR Part 1 Basic Training presented by Dr. Andrew Dobo
EMDR has established itself as a viable psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma and other related mental health disorders. EMDR is an efficacious treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Research is continuing to demonstrate the widespread applicability of EMDR in a variety of clinical presentations. Some of this will be discussed in the course presentation.
This workshop uses didactic, video, demonstration, and experiential components to explain the theoretical elements of EMDR and to clear up common misconceptions about this therapeutic approach. Case presentations and demonstrations will show participants how this approach can serve as a powerful, clinical tool in the treatment of numerous Axis I disorders, abuse, assault, and in the various problems confronting children and combat veterans (Amen, 2001). The first part of the training reviews the research, history and development of this therapy. The method, model and neurological mechanism (Bergmann, 2000; Servan-Schrieber, 2000; Stickgold, 2002) and behavioral changes (Armstrong & Vaughan, 1996; MacCulloch & Feldman, 1996) are also explained and defined. The participants will understand the eight-phase treatment model, the eight procedural steps of EMDR and the three-pronged approach this model uses as a comprehensive treatment (Shapiro, 2002). This training also includes affect management and grounding skills, target development strategies, negative cognition development and legal and ethical issues as they relate to EMDR.
