 EMDR 2.0

An enhanced version of EMDR therapy

 

Research supported concepts presented

• The greater the working memory load, the greater the desensitizing effects 

• More arousal appears to have a stronger desensitizing effect

• Modality-specific taxation can provide an additional effect 

• Unexpected ("surprise") intervention techniques can interrupt the reconsolidation of the memory 

 

Learn a range of memory-taxing tasks including

  • super-fast eye movements with varying patterns (V), 

  • spelling tasks (V/A), 

  • saying words out loud (A), 

  • shock effects (V/A), tapping complex rhythms (K), 

  • V-steps (K) and 

  • the “EMD bomb” (V/A/K) 

 

Participants will be able to:

 

  1. Describe the working memory taxation theory 

  2. List research findings supporting the working memory taxation theory

  3. Identify ways to motivate clients for processing memories that have a high level of disturbance

  4. Describe techniques for enhancing activation of traumatic memories 

  5. Identify and employ multiple memory-taxing tasks to aid in reprocessing traumatic memories.

  6. Describe techniques for destabilising memories including the “EMD bomb”. 

  7.   References with at least three APA format  articles or research
