Making the complex simple: A hands on workshop to learn a simple and efficient way to organize EMDR client files
This workshop will teach you a simple and efficient way to organize any EMDR client file no matter how complex. Mind mapping can lower overwhelming complexity of case files. This process was developed to help me with efficient case planning. I will teach you how to keep track of targets, client resources, themes, connections between targets, etc. while also providing a quick reference guide and way to plan sessions. Additionally, it provides clients with feedback on what has been accomplished and is yet to complete. Clients have commented that these maps have encouraged them as they can see clearly what they have completed, their strengths and resources, and themes in their life. They also understand that as their therapist, I have a thorough understanding. It also provides the therapist with a process to clarify where consultation is needed. Please bring a client file in which you have permission to receive colleague consultation. A real client file will be provided for those who wish not to bring a client file. Learning objectives: • To learn an efficient and simple way to organize client files with mind mapping techniques • To enhance case planning by identifying areas to be addressed through the re-organization of a file • To review the EMDR protocol through the mind map process
