About the Event:

Therapy is a masterful process which can offer individuals time to explore various parts of themselves.  The value and richness of therapy can be achieved within clients and throughout the therapeutic relationship resulting in a beautiful, artful outcome.  Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy can offer this richness to unfold despite the challenges that clients may encounter in therapy.

Decades of clinical pioneering by the late Francine Shapiro has allowed scientifically researched and empirically validated EMDR therapy come alive.  EMDR has been shown to be an effective treatment modality for improving clients’ overall symptoms related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, panic attacks, depression, and anxiety.  

In this presentation the following objectives will be covered:

  • Provide a thorough description of the comprehensive model of EMDR therapy.

  • Review case conceptualization through an EMDR lens.

  • Provide descriptions of the “art” to be utilized when clients become resistant in treatment.

  • Discuss transference and countertransference during various stages of treatment.

  • Describe the 8 Phases of EMDR therapy in treatment.
