Using the DeTUR™ model and EMDR to treat addictions and impulse control disorders
Effective treatment of trauma and addiction is a serious clinical challenge. The purpose of this workshop is to educate clinicians about the similarities between chemical and behavioral addictions, the negative consequences of leaving trauma untreated, and the expected benefits of using an integrated model of DeTUR™ (Desensitization of Triggers and Urges; Popky, A.J., 2001) and EMDR for the treatment of addictions. Participants will be able to describe the steps of DeTUR™ through lecture and demonstration. Participants will be shown how DeTUR™ can be integrated into the standard EMDR protocol, focusing on desensitizing triggers and urges, leading to identification of core traumas to be reprocessed.
