When considering EMDR as a treatment intervention, do you feel chained to protocols and procedures? Does it feel like you are conducting therapy in a straightjacket?

Roy Kiessling is a Master EMDR Trainer whose approach is renowned for its flexibility and providing clinical pearls of wisdom that allow participants to integrate EMDR effectively into their practices. His emphasis on attunement, attachment, and clinical judgment will be invaluable for new and experienced EMDR practitioners.

Roy Kiessling’s creative approach will “unchain you” from the rigidness of using EMDR – these constraints are often a by-product of being trained in the standard approach to EMDR. Since its development by Francine Shapiro in 1995, EMDR has evolved to become one of the most elegant, intimate, and interpersonal forms of psychotherapy.

Join Roy Kiessling for this 3-hour workshop designed to free you from the standard protocols and procedures of EMDR, and help you access your “inter-therapist.” This interactive session will provide you with safe, effective, and efficient EMDR treatments that can be integrated into your clinical style. As an added bonus, a one-hour Q&A follow session is also scheduled to help solidify your EMDR skills.

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will be able to—

  • Describe the difference between the Standard and Interpersonal approaches to EMDR.
  • Discuss the Belief Focused Neurological approach to EMDR.
  • Explain The EMDR Processing Continuum: EMD^, EMDr, EMDR.
