EMDR Therapy and the Treatment of Substance Use Disorders and Behavioral Addictions

Through the use of demonstration, case presentation, lecture and video clips, this workshop explores the use of EMDR in the treatment of chemical dependency and other addictive/compulsive behaviors—specifically with clients who are not yet abstinent. This treatment focused workshop teaches you how to stabilize clients and desensitize addiction memory networks without triggering increased substance use or relapse.

This workshop is a two day event that includes practicum time.

CEU’ s and EMDRIA Credits available

Workshop Goals and Objectives linked to EMDR Phases of Treatment

  • Phase 1: Learn history and case conceptualization concerns unique to Clients with histories of addictions.
  • Phase 2: Increase your knowledge of stabilization techniques used with persons with addictions. Grow more confidence about your ability to address the needs of non-abstinent Clients.
  • Phase 3-8: Learn how to desensitize the urges, cravings, and feeling states that trigger self-defeating behaviors. Increase your ability to create solid target sequence plans that will help your Clients create lives worth staying abstinent for.

And the things people have said (comments from our training evaluations)…..

 

“I have been to many trainings and workshops for EMDR Clinicians and this was by far the best. Well prepared and I can use what I learned right away.” – New Jersey 2019

“Both Hope and Kate were willing to teach, not just from their successes, but from their mistakes/missteps. This willingness to demonstrate expertise and vulnerability is such a powerful combo and tends, in the modeling, to infuse more clinical and personal confidence in the learner.”  DC 2019

“Hope and Kate are amazing. Their ability to be vulnerable, share their work, their displays of humility and humor were greatly admired. I highly recommend this training!” – Des Moines 2018

“The presenters were so engaging and clearly passionate about their work. I learned so much! Excellent handouts. Thank you! One of the best presentations of the conference” – Minneapolis, National EMDRIA Conference 2016

“Your work is inspiring. It really helps me feel more confident in creating a treatment plan in collaboration with my clients.” – EMDR Canada Conference, Banff 2017
