July 24: EMDR for Treating Long Covid, MSC, and Chronic Pain

EMDR is a widely known and effective method of treating and eradicating the neurological manifestations of chronic pain and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS). In addition, our presenter, Robin Shapiro–a highly-respected EMDR practitioner and in-demand global presenter in EMDR and its clinical applications–has discovered that EMDR can also relieve many of the symptoms of Long Covid, including tinnitus.

Participants will learn how to use EMDR, vagal exercises, and imaging to ease and often completely clear the experiences of chronic pain, tinnitus, Long Covid, and MCS.
The workshop includes a lecture, a video, a demonstration, and practice exercises.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Participants can distinguish between physiological and neurological symptoms.
  • Participants can complete EMDR Standard Protocol treatment on the appropriate targets for the onset of the problem.
  • Participants can utilize Silencing the Alarm, Negative Breathing, and Grounding techniques for vagal calming.
  • Participants can assist clients in discovering and utilizing visual tools for vagal calming.
  • Participants can utilize EMDR future templates to coach clients to use vagal calming techniques when symptoms reappear.
  • Participants can support both short-term and longer-term clients with neurological symptoms.

August 10: Healing Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse With EMDR and Ego State Therapy

9am-4:30pm Pacific Time

CEs: 6 CEs (Approved EMDRIA credits – EC Program Approval: #00002-35 )

$175

One out of four American girls and one out of six boys experience some form of sexual abuse that can range from a one-time fondling to years of being sexually trafficked. The more the abuse, the more likely the client will have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other forms of dissociation. This workshop explains the prevalence and effects of sexual abuse on children and the adults that they become.

Participants will be able to assess clients’ abuse histories and the effects, including dissociation, that the abuse has had. They will be able to talk effectively with different kinds of clients about their abuse histories and assess client therapy needs that are consistent with EMDR therapy and Ego State therapy.

Participants will learn strategies to help clients establish a sense of safety in the present time, to find freedom from flashbacks, distressing emotions, old sensations, and outdated senses of self to live—fully, completely–in the present. Participants will know how to help their clients understand healthy sexuality, teach them how to talk about sex, and navigate a current, happy, consensual relationship with a good partner.

Author and dynamic presenter Robin Shapiro will guide clinicians to assess and treat the impact of client sexual abuse histories, including dissociation; to establish a sense of present-time safety; and to free clients from flashbacks, emotions, old sensations, and outdated senses of self so that they can live in the present, with new potential for healthy sexuality.

  • List at least 3 keys in the assessment of survivors of sexual abuse
