CPD Event title: EMDR for Hypnotherapists
Brief Description Of Event: Due to recent events, the landscape of hypnotherapy has changed and more therapists than ever before are working online. Our EMDR training course has been enhanced to reflect this and now includes training and techniques specifically for online applications, and the best way to learn and practice online techniques is online. Our EMDR course has now been expanded to three days, although the price will remain at the standard two-day rate until further notice. The first two days of training (1st and 2nd May) are live online, via Zoom, where you will learn about EMDR, the use of EMDR online and how to apply the standard protocol and how to adapt it to suit a range of client needs. This is a highly practical weekend and makes full use of Zoom breakout rooms. You will then be able to practice and use the standard protocol. In addition, you will be able to engage with the activities and discussions in the private EMDR Facebook group. The final day of training (11th July**) is in person. Here you will learn more about the face-to-face applications of EMDR, together with advanced techniques including resource development and future pacing. There will also be plenty of practical work to develop your in-person EMDR skills and deepen your understanding. This course is designed to give hypnotherapists EMDR tools and approaches to use within their hypnotherapy practice. You will learn: Techniques: – Assessing contra-indications – Preparation and information gathering – Metaphors for EMDR – Working with SUD and VOC scales – Using bilateral stimulation and eye movements (finger sweep, clicks and taps) – Bilateral stimulation using technology – Processing images, beliefs, emotions and sensations – Working through blocks and loops – Closing interim and final sessions – Self-use of bilateral stimulation
Theory: – The theory of trauma – PTSD perspectives – Processing disturbance
Protocols for: Past trauma, Recent trauma, Phobias, Anxieties, Anger, Ego strengthening, Positive Enhancement and Future pacing.
