Video: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Demystified
Presenter: Howard Lipke
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is the most widely disseminated and thoroughly researched method of psychotherapy to appear in recent times. It is recognized as an evidence-based method of treatment for PTSD by evaluating authorities including the American Psychiatric Association, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies and the Veterans Administration/Department of Defense. Nonetheless, there are many misconceptions about what EMDR is, its theoretical base, and the nature of the supporting and critical research.
This presentation will describe and demonstrate aspects of EMDR, place it in a general theoretical context, and briefly summarize the current research. Participants will be presented with information to make informed choices about pursuing training, and which clients may be appropriate for EMDR treatment. Though this workshop will not prepare participants to use EMDR, clinical features of EMDR will be taught which may become immediately helpful in clinical practice for a wide variety of client concerns.
