Two Days of Learning with Dr. Derek Farrell

Description

6 credits per day: EMDRIA, APA, NASW, LMFT, LMHC, LPC and other NBCC approved clinicians

DAY ONE: EMDR Therapy with OCD, Panic Disorder and Phobias

This one-day workshop will address the application of EMDR therapy with clinical populations suffering from OCD, Panic Disorder and Phobia.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a bio-psycho-socio-cultural disorder that includes genetic, neural brain anomalies, traumatic experiences, and development of dysfunctional beliefs learnt from others and from the environment. The current empirical research supports the utilisation of a specific form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Exposure and Response Prevention) however not all clients respond well to this intervention.

This workshop will explore the utilisation of EMDR therapy as a possible treatment for OCD, Panic Disorder and Phobias.  It will highlight three important aspects: firstly, that the theoretical framework of EMDR therapy (Adaptive Information Processing) can play a part (albeit partly) in explicating some of the symptoms encountered by individuals with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic and Phobias. Secondly, that EMDR therapy can be a useful adjunctive, rather than distinct, psychological treatment intervention for individuals with OCD, Panic and Phobias. Thirdly, that the treatment impact of EMDR Therapy appears to be greater if there is distinct evidence of past traumatological experiences that are sufficient to generate a presently held level of disturbance.

DAY TWO: Treating Sexual Abuse perpetrated by Clergy, Professionals and those in Fiduciary Roles

Sexual abuse perpetrated by those in fiduciary roles (professionals entrusted with guiding and caretaking roles) breach these legal and ethical relationships of trust. This workshop will feature treatment for clergy abuse, while also considering the prevalence, impact and treatment needs related to abuse by teachers, coaches, health providers, therapists, employers and others. Distinctive forms of sexual traumatology generate unique trauma characteristics not accounted for by existing PTSD classifications (DSM-5/ ICD-11).  Such a breach of a fiduciary relationship has significant implications often generating persistent symptoms in areas of safety, trust, secrecy, shame, alienation and moral injury. Trauma informed psychological treatment is critical.

This workshop will depict treatment for survivors of such traumas which is viewed through the lens of the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) model, and explores six considerations:

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

Broader aspects related to sexual abuse by clergy considers church hierarchy, celibacy and litigation processes and other additional factors. In summary – this workshop will consider the application of EMDR Therapy with survivors of fiduciary trauma.
