EMDR group-traumatic episode protocol (G-TEP)
The accessibility of EMDR therapy in emergency and disaster situations is often limited by the shortage of trained clinicians immediately available when relatively large numbers of trauma victims are involved. This presentation provides an overview of the EMDR Group Traumatic Episode Protocol (G-TEP), a group application of the EMDR R-TEP, with a structured worksheet format for simplified utilization in emergency situations. The G-TEP addresses the multi-target fragmented nature of recent trauma memories over an extended trauma episode. Uses include groups with the same or different critical incidents, stand-alone stress management training, and for broader applications of EMDR group treatment.
