Since 2013, the EMDR North West Regional Committee has organised annual or bi-annual workshops and training events. These have all been approved for content and quality and awarded CPD points by the Association.
We welcome ideas and suggestions for future learning events.
Next Event: 7th March 2020
AD DE JONGH
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:
Describe the working memory taxation theory
List research findings supporting the working memory taxation theory
Identify ways to motivate clients for processing memories that have a high level of disturbance
Describe techniques for enhancing activation of traumatic memories
Identify and employ multiple memory-taxing tasks to aid in reprocessing traumatic memories.
Describe techniques for destabilising memories including the “EMD bomb”.
