EMDR therapy and suicidality: A one day webinar
About this webinar
A new eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) workshop that teaches participants how to use EMDR therapy with individuals in an acute mental health crisis.
Two recent research papers have shown the efficacy of using EMDR with individuals who are suicidal – this webinar will show EMDR therapists how to use EMDR therapy safely with this client group.
In order to safely treat individuals who are suicidal with EMDR therapy, the webinar will show participants how to assess for the severity of suicidal intent and desire, allowing clinicians to take positive clinical risks.
Simon will present theoretical models of suicide which will help therapists feel more confident in working with suicide. Simon will inform the audience about his work on using EMDR therapy with individuals who are suicidal and to highlight current developments and to show how the standard EMDR protocol can be used to treat individuals who are suicidal.
