EMDR Master Series – I


EMDR is a method that has a number of interesting possibilities that are needed to work with some of the more challenging complex PTSD patients. Concepts like the Disorder of Extreme Stress (Herman et al.) and the concept of structural dissociation (Nijenhuis et al.) help to understand the patient better. The treatment course, also with the use of EMDR, is often complicated. EMDR can be one of the key treatment approaches in a therapy setting for those patients, however, it usually needs also to enclose other treatment modalities in an overall treatment plan. The objective of this presentation is to help therapists use the opportunities that EMDR offers and to reduce the risks for their treatment course. Depending in the size of the group, time for discussion about clinical cases of participants is welcome.
