Through lecture, live and videotaped demonstrations, and experiential exercises, this training will provide participants with an in-depth knowledge of trauma theory, principles, diagnosis, and treatment. 

Linda will guide you through EMDR’s clinical applications for the traumatic stress disorders – those included in and excluded from the DSM-5®’s newly-created classification, Trauma and Stressor-related Disorders: 

  • Acute Trauma Disorder 

  • Simple PTSD 

  • Complex PTSD 

  • PTSD Dissociative Subtype 

  • PTSD Preschool Subtype 

  • Developmental Trauma Disorder (DTD) 

  • Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) 

For all but single-incident trauma, the tri-phasic model is today’s state-of-the-art treatment approach. You will learn each phase of the treatment including its therapeutic goals and the clinical tools to reach those goals. Most importantly, you will: 

  1. Learn EMDR: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Skills 

  1. Practice using these new tools in a safe and supervised environment 

  1. Learn this dynamic, comprehensive training equipped to improve outcomes with traumatized clients
