Lunch and Learn Webinar – July 2024

Join Liam Spicer on Wednesday 3 July 2024 when he presents the webinar: ‘Optimizing Target Selection in EMDR Therapy: Where do we start, and why?

“When do I know someone is ready for processing?”, and “Where should we start?”. Much discussion has occurred based on peer-reviewed clinical evidence around the role and need for stabilisation, however in this presentation, Liam Spicer will guide clinicians through the various routes of target selection, aiming to generate discussion not just about when and where we start EMDR processing, but importantly the why are we starting here.

Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the different transdiagnostic routes for EMDR target selection, and how to choose what target to start with based on a client’s current capacity, symptoms, and therapeutic goals.
  • To understand how and why we should use various modified, restricted, or alternative protocols as needed leaning on the work of Roy Kiesslings processing continuum, Dolores Mosquera’s progressive approach, the use of the Silent (Blind 2 Therapist) protocol and the work of Ad De Jongh and colleagues
  • To encourage EMDR therapists to think creatively on where we should start processing, emphasising the transdiagnostic benefits of EMDR therapy and how more efficient and effective clinical change can come from optimizing the target selection process.

Date: Wednesday 3 July 2024

Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm (AEST)
