Training Overview: Expand your clinical and research horizons
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 online training, designed for EMDR-trained therapists, will expand your clinical and research horizons as you learn and practice EMDR protocols (EMDR-IGTP and EMDR-PRECI) and AIP-informed Psychophysiological Algorithmic Procedures (ASSYST for Individuals and Groups)*, that can be provided in-person or online, with the most research in the EMDR Early Intervention and Ongoing Traumatic Stress field with nearly 50 articles. Click here to see nearly 50 published research articles (references).
With these procedures and protocols, clinicians will be able to provide in-person or online, rapid responses or early interventions, conduct fieldwork, and treat individuals or large and small (e.g., families) groups living recent, present or past prolonged adverse experiences!
*The training portions that include the ASSYST protocols are not available for CE’s for psychologists.
