Animal assisted EMDR protocol/equiLateral

Description

This 3 hour workshop introduces the first Animal-Assisted EMDR Protocol - EquiLateral™ . A clinically beneficial and unique approach to EMDR, EquiLateral integrates Equine-Assisted Therapy while still maintaining fidelity to EMDR’s research based, eight phased, three pronged, standard protocol. The rationale for the integration of equine-assisted activities within EMDR’s eight phases will be addressed. Attendees will also be able to identify clients who would benefit from the EquiLateral Protocol including those in need of additional grounding, attachment, affect tolerance skills, and resource states for in depth trauma processing, as well as for case conceptualization and target sequence planning purposes. A highly interactive workshop, participants will learn via case studies, video, role-plays, and didactic presentations. Learning Objectives: 1. To identify clients who would benefit from the EquiLateral Protocol including those in need of additional grounding, attachment, affect tolerance skills, and additional resource states for in depth trauma processing, as well as for case conceptualization and target sequence planning purposes. 2. To list the rationale for the integration of equine-assisted activities into the standard EMDR protocol. 3. To cite examples of how client’s experiences with horses, throughout the EquiLateral Protocol, can be leveraged both in and out of the arena, in and out of office, and between sessions. 4. To be able to identify how training in the EquiLateral Protocol creates additional specialization opportunities for the individual EMDR practitioner, as well as treatment centers.
