Module 1

Nuances of EMDR-focused History Taking

In this module we will explore the challenges of taking a trauma history with clients who become too activated and discuss what sort of information is actually needed to proceed in therapy. First, we will discuss assessment strategies that can help the therapist determine whether the client is ready for a more detailed trauma history or not. Second, several approaches that will support the therapist in having enough information without triggering the client will be discussed. Third, we will explore how to manage clients who are overly eager to share minute and horrific details of trauma so that they become less present. Finally, we will discuss how to deal with history taking with the extremely avoidant client. Cases will illustrate assessment strategies.

Module 2

Prerequisites for trauma processing in EMDR therapy: Stabilization tools beyond safe space

How do we know when a client is not yet ready to process traumatic memories? What skills and capacities are necessary for trauma processing? This module will examine stabilization not only from a perspective of getting the client ready to work on traumatic memories, but as an essential part of therapy that provides necessary capacities that improve the client’s life in general. Stabilization involves a series of highly complex abilities to understand and relate to oneself and others, to identify, tolerate and regulate both positive and negative emotions, and to make adaptive decisions. We will look at how to help clients learn mindfulness, emotion identification and regulation and impulse control; how to overcome avoidance of exploring their own inner experience; how to help clients understand the mind of others; how to navigate relationship closeness and distance and tolerate normal ruptures; and how to maintain safety.

Module 3

EMDR therapy and self-harm: Guidelines and considerations for treatment

This module will help participants acquire basic knowledge on how to work with self-harm. We will explore the triggers for these behaviors and the many functions that self-harm serves in clients. The complexities of safety planning and reduction of self-harm will be discussed, and specific treatment approaches will be offered. Several case examples will illustrate treatment approaches. We will also explore various countertransference feelings toward self-harming clients and how to shift to a more compassionate and positive approach.

Module 4

Working with suicidality; Can I Use EMDR with clients who report suicidal ideation?

This module will help clinicians learn to identify the triggers of suicidal ideation and work with clients who have acute or chronic suicidality. We will explore safety plans, specific EMDR interventions and the integration of a variety of other approaches to support suicidal clients. We will also discuss countertransference that may interfere with treatment and how to work through it to a more adaptive approach to suicidality.

Module 5

Identifying and working with resistance in EMDR therapy

Resistance is often encountered in work with clients with developmental trauma and dissociation. In fact, it is an expected part of treatment for most clients who naturally avoid painful experiences. This webinar will normalize resistance as an attempt of the client to protect. A compassionate curiosity on the part of the therapist will support careful exploration of the intended adaptive meaning of resistance. We will discuss how to recognize various forms of resistance, how to manage countertransference, and explore various approaches to decreasing resistance and improving the collaboration of the client, utilizing EMDR and additional approaches.
