Organiser: EMDR academy

Have you trained in EMDR but don't feel confident in integrating it into your social work practice? Do you want to catch up with the latest advances and innovations with adults and children? This workshop will refresh your knowledge and skills, and help you use EMDR in creative, compassionate ways. The World Health Organisation recommends EMDR as a treatment for trauma in children and adults. Emerging research shows it can be used effectively within days, months or years following traumatic events. It can also be used with groups or families. Social workers are well placed to deliver trauma treatment to those who need it. This course will demonstrate how, in the hands of skilled practitioners, EMDR is a powerful and creative tool for reducing suffering and promoting healing.

Learning objectives

  • Review the AIP model and apply it to case conceptualisation and treatment planning
  • Revise and practise the 8 phases of the EDMR standard protocol
  • Identify adaptations needed for children and adolescents
  • Practice strategies for containment and managing abreactions
  • Overview of current directions and innovations in EMDR and how these fit with the standard protocol

Learner prerequisities

Participants must have previously completed Level 1 EMDR (basic) training with an approved trainer. Proof of completion will be required before commencement.
