Webinar Description

This course is an overview of Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for therapists who are interested in understanding or reviewing the basics about the model. This does not serve as the EMDR Basic Training; rather, it is intended as an introduction or a refresher course, and it provides useful information for referring clinicians. Key concepts, an outline of treatment, up-to-date research, and case examples will be presented.

In this course,  the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model will be explained as the strengths-based theoretical foundation for EMDR, developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro. AIP views trauma symptoms as unprocessed disturbing memories. EMDR uses eye movements as bilateral stimulation to help access and desensitize traumatic memories, and allows individuals to reprocess memory adaptively thus eliminating symptoms. The 8 Phases of EMDR treatment will be presented along with case examples to illustrate the process.
