PTSD and introduction to EMDR
Aims of the event
This workshop is designed to introduce counsellors and psychotherapists to how PTSD presents, how it is experienced by the client, and discuss how EMDR can be an effective tool in the treatment of PTSD. The workshop does NOT qualify participants to practice EMDR. The aim is to inform and encourage the training necessary in order to practice this extremely useful psychological tool. You will be guided through the theory underpinning EMDR and the eight-phase protocol used with clients. There will also be an opportunity for some 'hands on' practice using the bilateral stimulation method. CPD certificates will be issued at the end of the day. Information regarding EMDR training is available on the EMDR Association UK and Ireland website and other related websites.
