EMDR and complex trauma: Essential skills beyond basic training
How many of you left your EMDR Basic Training, so excited to start the next day with a client, only to find that your client did not respond well to EMDR treatment planning, to the safe place exercise, or looped endlessly in Phase 4? These clients may present as highly defended, personality disordered, chaotic, avoidant, uncontained, and/or dissociative. This workshop will focus on case conceptualization from the AIP perspective and concrete practical skills, resources and strategies to assist the clinician to help these complex clients. This training picks up where Basic Training leaves off, a “Weekend 3” for complex trauma.
