A substantial portion of individuals experiencing recent traumatic events suffer from acute traumatic distress, with symptoms of intrusion, avoidance and hyper-arousal, associated with significant impairment in daily functioning. Many will recover spontaneously, but some will go on to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a mood disorder, or other psychological and physical disorders, with associated functional impairments. Research suggests the possibility that early intervention, which reduces or eliminates acute distress, may prevent the development of subsequent disorders. As we know, a successful trauma treatment produces significant economic, social and cultural benefits for individuals, families and communities (White Paper, EMDR Early Intervention and Crisis Response Summit Conference, Boston, MA, April 20-22, 2018).
This training will expand your clinical and research horizons as you learn and practice two AIP-informed procedures for acute stress syndrome stabilization in individual and group formats and the two EMDR therapy protocols (EMDR-IGTP and EMDR-PRECI) with more research in the EMDR Early Intervention and Ongoing Traumatic Stress field
Ignacio (Nacho) Jarero, Ph.D., Ed.D, is the world pioneer in the provision of EMDR therapy in a group format and AIP-informed Advance Psychosocial Interventions. He specializes in Humanitarian Trauma Recovery and Research Programs on EMDR therapy. He has conducted seminars and workshops around the world with participants of 65 different countries, and since 1998 has provided field services in Latin America, the Caribbean, Spain and South Asia to natural or human-provoked disaster victims, family members of those deceased, and first responders.
Kelly Smyth-Dent is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Private Practice Therapist. She is trained in trauma-informed care, marriage and family therapy, attachment theory and EMDR. Kelly was formally trained in EMDR-IGTP, EMDR-IGTP-OTS, EMDR-PRECI and the ASSYST individual and group procedures by Dr. Ignacio Jarero. She is now one of Ignacio’s Trainers-in-Training. Kelly is a part of Dr. Jarero’s research team and travels to Mexico regularly to implement the IGTP and PRECI with research participants. She is the Founder and CEO of Scaling Up, LLC and is continually applying for funding to implement research projects to further measure the effectiveness of EMDR-based group and individual intervention protocols with various populations and comparison groups.
Registration starts at 8:00am.
The training will begin at 8:30am and end at 5:00pm.
