The Advanced Practice of EMDR for Perinatal Mental Health
March 12th-14th, 2023 with Dr. Mara Tesler Stein
This live-streamed advanced practice workshop will introduce attendees to the wide range of disruptive events that can occur in the perinatal period, will teach them to identify characteristics of those events that induce ruptures in the normative developmental path of family-building, and to recognize the common clinical presentations of patients suffering in the aftermath of disruptive and traumatizing perinatal events.
Increase your knowledge of how trauma affects the brain and how EMDR can improve client outcomes. Update your skills and enhance your ability to identify hidden trauma in the clients you see and learn to better facilitate healing in new clients suffering perinatal trauma. Learn advanced practice applications including the integration of AIP-based interventions across all prongs and phases of EMDR treatment. The use of specialized protocols and modifications are also addressed during this training. Case discussion, demonstration, and reflection around 'self as therapist' are woven throughout the course.
