EMDR Skills for Trauma Treatment: A Step-by-Step 

EMDR skills are essential in trauma therapy, but learning EMDR can feel daunting and time-consuming. However, learning and practicing EMDR doesn’t have to be overwhelming. This 5-part webinar series steps attendees through the original 8-phase model of EMDR, helping them master each phase through didactic learning, demonstrations, and dyad practice. Additionally, attendees will learn complementary skills and techniques that help ensure clients stay safe, stable, and resourced as they process trauma. 

Wednesday, February 9, 2022 h. 13:00 – 16:00 (Rome time)
In this webinar, the neuroscience of trauma, trauma treatment, and EMDR will be emphasized, along with an explanation of the proposed mechanisms of trauma treatment. Understanding the “whys” and hows” of EMDR allows clinicians to explain EMDR to clients in a way that promotes motivation and “buy in,” and helps clinicians take a client-centered approach to treatment.

Thursday, February 10, 2022 h. 13:00 – 16:00 (Rome time)
This webinar focuses on the original 8-phase model of EMDR, teaching attendees the “order of operations” of EMDR therapy and the purpose of each phase. Additionally, this webinar teaches attendees a step-by-step strategy for conducting Phase 1 of EMDR, Target Sequence Planning.

Wednesday, February 23, 2022 h. 13:00 – 16:00 (Rome time)
This webinar focuses on teaching attendees Phases 2, 3, and 4 of EMDR, including resourcing and preparation skills, how to access and activate trauma networks, and methods for facilitating the desensitization to traumatic material. 

Thursday, February 24, 2022 h. 13:00 – 16:00(Rome time)
In this webinar, attendees will learn Phases 5-8 of EMDR, including installation skills and body scanning. This webinar will also include a comprehensive demonstration of Phases 3-7, so attendees can observe how EMDR is conducted in real therapy sessions. 

Wednesday,March 9, 2022 h. 13:00 – 15:00 (Rome time)
This webinar provides attendees with the opportunity to practice EMDR skills with the support of the instructor. Many times, challenges with EMDR are difficult to anticipate until the skills are attempted and practiced. The goal of the webinar is to help attendees practice EMDR skills, and to identify challenges that need troubleshooting.
