A Valuable Addition: Basic Training in EMDR Therapy

Traditional therapies take time, and it can be disheartening to see clients move backward after gaining a few steps forward.  EMDR Therapy provides you with the valuable tools you need in your therapy practice. Basic Training is a three-weekend training course covering all of the basics of EMDR Therapy.  Within the three weekends you gain understanding in both the history of EMDR Therapy and the mechanisms by which the theory works.  By the end of your training you will be able to articulate the 3-pronged, 8-phased EMDR protocol. At EMDR Professional Training’s Basic Training weekends, you learn from the best.  Dr. Curtis Rouanzoin brings over 27 years of experience in EMDR Therapy and is internationally known as a premier trainer.  Dr. Michelle Gottlieb is an international speaker of the topic of EMDR Therapy who is known for presenting the principles of EMDR in an accessible style. Both are university professors with [...]

Going for the Gold: EMDR and Elite Performers

In the EMDR community, we readily acknowledge the effectiveness of the AIP Model for PTSD or DD.  What if we could also utilize EMDR for professional athletes, dancers, and creatives—people who are at the top of their game, as it were, or should be?      Well, we can.      Elite performers engage in activities that are both highly rewarding and highly stressful.  Working with the high-performance mindset requires careful consideration to apply effective intervention strategies.      That’s where Sara Gilman comes in.  Dr. Gilman, PsyD. LMFT, has worked with professional football and baseball players, Olympic gymnasts and equestrians, triathletes, cyclists, and ice skaters, as well as professional singers, actors, speakers, and artists.  She’s an accomplished veteran in the specialization of peak performance.    Gilman is sharing her expertise in a new workshop, EMDR and Performance:  Removing Blocks and Raising the Bar—Strategies for Clinicians Working with Athletes and Creatives, May [...]

Haunted: EMDR with First Responders and Professionals in the Trenches

A Workshop presented by Robbie Adler Tapia, Ph.D. Hosted by: Tapia Counseling and Psychological Services, Inc. Dates: May 4 & 5, 2019  in Goodyear, AZ This workshop will focus on basic and advanced skills in adhering to the 8 phases of EMDR therapy in the treatment of first responders exposed to trauma in the line of duty. The practice of caring for the emotional and physical needs of professionals exposed to life and death situations and the most difficult of human suffering takes its toll on those in the trenches. In these inimitable circumstances, the exposure can lead to direct traumas and/or vicarious trauma for the professional. By working in law enforcement, fire sciences, emergency services, 911 operators, emergency room staff (including doctors and nurses), child welfare workers, and even psychotherapists, these professionals experience direct or secondary trauma from their work environment. Case conceptualization will be presented through the lens of the Adaptive Information Processing Model [...]

EMDR Therapy – The Solution

It’s a well-known fact that a staggering amount of the population of the world has experienced some form of trauma.  Just think of the weather-related disasters in the United Statesin 2018 alone.  Hurricanes Florence and Michael, the California Wildfires, and massive flooding throughout the South, Northeast, and West Coast left behind an enormous amount damage and loss of life, but thousands are still struggling because of the experience of these highly traumatic events. Beyond natural disasters are the daily occurrences of trauma that, unfortunately, exist under the radar.  A Navy SEAL, once a trained warrior, struggles to find a reason to live because of the recurring, vivid nightmare of the night he lost both a comrade and one of his limbs.  A teenage girl lives in daily fear and shame because of an adult family member’s repeated, demoralizing abuse.  A married couple lives a loveless marriage of unspoken expectations and [...]
