Using history taking (and more) to seamlessly prepare clients for EMDR processing
EMDR clinicians are exhorted to take a thorough history from each client prior to processing, but in most trainings little time is spent on how to do so. Many trainees mistakenly assume that the first three of the eight phases of treatment are separate steps that should be performed sequentially. The goals of this workshop are to demonstrate how a thorough history taking can be an essential part of preparing clients for EMDR processing and to show how Phases 1 – 3 (History Taking, Client Preparation, and Target Assessment) can and should be seamlessly integrated to best prepare clients for EMDR processing.
