Healing the healer: EMDR-IGTP-OTS & vicarious trauma in black clinicians
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Integrative Group Treatment Protocol in Ongoing Traumatic Stress (EMDR- IGTP-OTS) has been studied effectively in Latin communities since 1997 (Jarero, 2010), but not yet with African American communities. As anti-racism awareness grows, a need arises to resource black clinicians who absorb stories of racism from their clients. Previous research focused on preventing secondary trauma in therapists mostly by increasing coping skills. Little research exists on race-related secondary trauma and the treatment of race-related trauma in therapists. These presenters will detail the use of EMDR-IGTP-OTS in decreasing traumatic stress in black clinicians.
