EMDR therapy prospers in a climate that supports innovation but insists upon corroborating research to validate findings. This workshop explores scientific interest in the working memory theory, which states that the effects of EMDR therapy can be attributed to dual taxation of a clients limited working memory capacity while recalling aversive memories. Specifically, research has shown that greater working memory taxation is more effective than lesser taxation.
This workshop presents multiple ways in which this knowledge can be integrated to better activate trauma memories, and to maximize the working memory load to enhance the beneficial effects of EMDR therapy. Consistent with this theory is the necessity of efficiently. The EMDR 2.0 package contains effective new applications that vary from modality-specific working memory-taxing techniques, and other bold techniques to destabilize trauma memories, such as the “EMD bomb”. The purpose of this workshop is to teach new methods for the treatment of patients with Complex PTSD who display high levels of anxiety and dissociation and have shown limited treatment effects. Case examples, video clips and live demonstrations will portray Innovative techniques. Participants will have practice opportunities and will receive a toolkit filled with new techniques.
