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.

Online Workshop Goals​

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.
