Early Intervention – 2-Day Advanced Training

For therapists trained in EMDRIA Approved EMDR Basic training
Offered by E. C. Hurley, DMin, PhD, CEO, EMDR-Tennessee

This EMDR Early Intervention (EEI) training offers training in the Recent -Traumatic Events Protocol (R-TEP) and Group-Traumatic Events Protocols (G-TEP) developed by Elan Shapiro & Bruit Laub for the purpose of equipping EMDR trained therapists to respond to the needs of survivors of natural and man-made disasters. The R-TEP protocol allows EMDR providers to treat persons experiencing over-whelming recent events with both individual and group EMDR treatment.  The G-TEP has been used in treating groups of disaster survivors at the same time.  EMDR trained providers will gain valuable resources enabling them to serve their communities during times of disaster providing treatment with immediacy and proximity – core issues in treating stress related problems. The presenter has utilized these protocols in treating survivors of combat stress, as well as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires and persons who witnessed suicidal acts. His experiences are integrated with the training along with live demonstrations and videos.

Complex Trauma and Dissociation in Youth: A Comprehensive Training
Brought to you by the author of Healing the Fractured Child (Fran Waters), this 4-day comprehensive training covers evaluation and treatment of dissociation in children and youth.

Children with complex trauma often present with perplexing and disturbing symptoms that persist even after numerous treatment attempts, typically resulting in multiple diagnoses and medications. These children often display severe attachment disturbances and exacerbating behaviors that result in in repetitive failed placements (e.g., foster and adoptive homes, psychiatric residential/acute hospital stays).  Frequently, the missing and overlooked link to successful treatment with children of complex trauma is their dissociative symptoms that profoundly impact their mood, behavior, identity, memory, sensations and attachments.

Participants will learn:
How to detect and diagnose dissociation in children with complex trauma
How to discern other more commonly known diagnoses from those with dissociation (differential diagnoses)
Specialized techniques to work with self-states for stabilization, empowerment, and expanding children’s window of tolerance
Work with self-states that have disruptive behaviors, and attachment disturbances
Strategies for trauma processing across all of self-states
To effectively integrate the dissociative child

Fran S. Waters is a licensed clinical social worker and marriage and family therapist in private practice in Marquette, MI. She provides services to individuals, couples, and families with a variety of challenges.

Patti van Eys, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist and the Chief Clinical Officer of Omni Visions, Inc. where she oversees the clinical and quality integrity of therapeutic practice with foster children in resource homes and residential treatment centers.
