6 EMDR Association UK&I CPD points applied for

The EMDR Association's East Anglia group is delighted to welcome our very own Derek Farrell, former Association President and international expert on all things EMDR, for a classic regional networking day on working with Unspoken Trauma, with a special focus on the Blind to Therapist Protocol.

Derek Farrell no lessDerek will spend the morning at this new venue for us, Chelmsford's cricket ground, taking us through the standard, structured EMDR approach for clients who can't or aren't ready to share specific and often intimate details of what happened to them.

“Certain trauma experiences have ‘no voice’,” says Derek, “often when traumas involve deep-rooted shame, or fear of retribution.”

The workshop will outline some of the key components of ‘unspoken trauma’, relating for example to child abuse, gender-based violence, conflict, atrocities and human rights violations.

Derek will share with us country case studies including Cambodia, Myanmar, Pakistan, Lebanon and Iraq, as well as individual narratives.

For the purpose of this workshop, survivors of ‘unspoken traumas’ will be viewed through the lens of ‘Adaptive Information Processing (AIP)’, exploring six considerations:

  • Psychoeducation
  • Trauma Stabilisation
  • Trauma Confrontation
  • Intensive Trauma Treatment
  • EMDR Group Interventions
  • Post-Traumatic Growth and Resilience

Broader aspects will also include findings from an empirical study carried out in Iraq using the Blind 2 Therapist Protocol.

The B2T as it's known in the research community was developed several years ago by our UK colleague David Blore, specifically to work with tough coal miners who would never acknowledge, at least early in the EMDR process, to any Negative Cognition involving weakness of lack of control.

Needless to say, this is research that has important implications for understanding why and how EMDR works at all even with clients who might be prepared to share details in Phase 3 assessment.

So, come and join us for a day of multilateral stimulation and inspiration, with an afternoon set aside for group networking and Consultant-led discussion of burning issues that colleagues might with to bring about their practice with EMDR.

We'll be posting more info here in the weeks before we meet, so feel free to bookmark the page and keep abreast of what we're preparing.
