CE Information – Early EMDR Intervention Protocols: Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol and Group Traumatic Episode Protocol (RTEP-GTEP)

Course Description

The EMDR Group Traumatic Episode Protocol (G-TEP) is a group application of the EMDR Recent-Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP).

The Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) is part of a comprehensive approach to Early EMDR Intervention (EEI). This workshop incorporates and extends existing protocols within a new conceptual framework, together with additional measures for containment and safety. Checking for sub-clinical sticking points which can obstruct Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) and don’t necessarily show up on the DSM radar, the R-TEP may reduce sensitization and accumulation of trauma memories.

Workshop participants learn how to apply EMDR for early intervention in emergent trauma situations, providing the practitioner with detailed information regarding the Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol and the Group Traumatic Episode Protocol. Participants will identify and apply key features, procedures, and concepts of both R-TEP and G-TEP as well as demonstrate their use through extensive practicum within the workshop setting. Participants will learn how to adapt both protocols for online tele-health formats.
