Integrated trauma treatment program: A novel EMDR approach for PTSD and substance abuse
PTSD and substance abuse is a common co-occurring disorder for which current research recommends a phased, integrated treatment approach. This presentation covers the 4-year pilot program using EMDR and Seeking Safety© as an Integrated Trauma Treatment Program (ITTP) in a Drug Court. The process, rationale and clinically significant outcomes of this study will be presented. Participants will learn how to implement EMDR in other similar settings and will learn how to develop a simple research model to collect data. Time will be provided for discussion of clinical issues addressed in this ITTP and video of study participants post-treatment.
