EMDR Europe Consultant’s Day



EMDR Therapy as an Eight-Phase Treatment Intervention for Adverse Life Experiences – A Current Review of the Core Components of each Phase and its subsequent implications for EMDR Europe Accreditation for Practitioners and Consultants.


Presenters: Deany Laliotis & Derek Farrell


De 14:00 a 18:00 horas


EMDR therapy is a comprehensive, integrative, yet distinct psychotherapy approach that addresses the physiological storage of memory and how it informs experience. Change is understood as a bi-product of reprocessing due to the alteration of memory storage and the linkage to adaptive memory networks. An intrinsic element relates to dual attention bilateral stimulation or BLS(eye movements, tactile taps, and auditory tones) however this is merely one component of the treatment intervention. EMDR therapy is used to address adverse life experiences that contribute to problems in dailyliving (Shapiro, 2001).


Although diverse diagnoses can require different, often customized EMDR procedures incorporating the three-pronged protocol of past, present, and future there is ostensibly only one protocol using the eight phases of EMDR Therapy.


Over the last number of years, the EMDR Institute (USA) has undertaken a contemporaneous up-date of their EMDR Therapy Levels 1 & 2 Training Manuals. This timely review provides an opportunity for EMDR Europe Consultants to consider the core elements of each of the Eight Phases of the Standard Protocol, its key messages for clinical practice, clinical supervision, teaching and learning, and ascertaining competency in accordance with EMDR Europe Accreditation criteria for both Practitioners and Consultants.
