June 23, 2023, 1:00 - 4:15 PM PDT
3.0 EMDRIA CE Credits
Program Approval #15002-66
This webinar broadens the scope of clinicians' treatment of addiction using EMDR by expanding on those foundations into more refined work with complex trauma and addiction clients. This advanced workshop begins where the basic one ends. It introduces the integration of Internal Family Systems (IFS) informed ego state work within EMDR and utilizes an assortment of videos to exemplify this integration with a particular emphasis on relapse, relapse prevention, recovery, and renewal.

Goals & Objectives:

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the core tenets of IFS and name 3 reasons why integrating IFS informed parts work within the eight phases of EMDR is recommended for treating complex trauma and addiction rather than either approach alone.
  2. Name 3 common stages of relapse and utilize parts work within those stages as opportunities to learn more about what parts still need healing, and to strengthen internal connections toward a more comprehensive recovery.
  3. Utilize this integrated approach to reprocess early trauma and attachment wounds, addiction memories, cravings, and previous relapses/recurrences, to create an internally collaborative relapse prevention plan.

This training covers foundational concepts of EMDR therapy used in the treatment of addictions and other compulsive behaviors. The training focuses on history, case conceptualization, and treatment planning. This beginning workshop utilizes the ACE study and the role of addiction memory to learn these concepts and procedures.
