Navigating the Addiction Protocol Maze: EMDR Therapy and the Treatment of Substance and Behavioral Addictions

Description

6 credits per day: EMDRIA, APA, MSW, LMFT, LMHC, LPC​ ​and other​ NBCC approved clinicians. NY CEs can be arranged.

This workshop explores the use of EMDR Therapy in the treatment of substance use disorders and other addictive and compulsive behaviors—specifically with clients who are not yet abstinent. Our comprehensive treatment-focused workshop teaches how to stabilize clients and desensitize addiction memory networks without triggering increased substance use or relapse.

Addictive and compulsive behaviors can provide victims of trauma a sense of escape from symptoms as well as feelings of safety, control, power and belonging. These seemingly positive aspects of compulsions are short lived and backfire with negative consequences, however the pull for relief from trauma symptoms are so great that cravings increase and a cycle of use ensues. Using demonstration, case presentation, lecture and video clips, this training offers a comprehensive plan for working with people struggling with addiction. History-taking, increasing clients’ inner locus of motivation, desensitizing cravings, and treating the underlying trauma will all be discussed. Clinicians will increase treatment planning skills and confidence in working with people with substance use disorders and behavioral addictions. Attendees are provided with a scripted protocol handout to use after the training.  This protocol includes history-taking, motivational interviewing, desensitizing cravings and working with the maladaptive seemingly positive aspects of using.
