Early EMDR interventions: Preventing PTSD and other disaster related injuries
This workshop will familiarize participants with early EMDR interventions for those involved in a recent traumatic event. Participants will briefly address the science behind early psychological intervention after a trauma/disaster, including the physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual impacts during and after the event, with and without intervention. The memory of recent trauma differs from that of a more distant trauma in that it tends to be more fragmented or unconsolidated and less integrated into a coherent, narrative sequence of events or theme cluster (Shapiro, Francine, 2001) (Shapiro, Elan, 2008). Several EEI protocols will be reviewed.
