Treatment of fears and phobias with EMDR: Assessment, conceptualization and effective treatment strategies

Description

Specific phobias are more prevalent than any other group of psychiatric disorders. Given that specific phobias and PTSD share a number of important features, and that a wide array of controlled studies support EMDR's effectiveness with treatment for unprocessed events and related conditions, EMDR has also been claimed to be an effective treatment for specific fears and phobias.

This workshop focuses on EMDR as a treatment approach for a wide variety of fears and phobias. Participants will learn how: 1) to assess clients with patterns of fearful avoidance, 2) to rapidly conceptualize cases in terms of EMDR, 3) to adequately identify core targets and cognitions, 4) to use creative adaptations of the EMDR protocol for difficult clients, and 5) to integrate EMDR interventions into a general treatment approach. Many of these approaches will be illustrated by segments of video taped treatment sessions.
