Description

Walk the path to trauma resolution - step by step

In addition to improved practice outcomes, effective integration of EMDR can lead to the long-term trauma resolution that your clients so desperately desire.

Transform your practice . . . and your clients’ lives

EMDR Step-by-Step is a comprehensive course with Linda Curran, recognized trauma specialist, veteran clinician, sought after national trainer and best-selling author on trauma that will provide you with practical strategies for effective implementation of EMDR into your practice.

See how to turn theory into practice

Through in-session demonstration, instructive commentary, and expert guidance and support from trauma leaders including Bessel A. van der Kolk, Peter Levine, Robin Shapiro, and more, you’ll learn to safely and effectively utilize EMDR for the treatment of traumatic stress.

Now updated with new in-session demonstrations, Linda’s training focuses on the development of clinical assessment skills with regard to client safety and stabilization -- specifically for clients who want to process traumatic material using EMDR.

Includes, instructive commentary from experts in both EMDR and the larger field of traumatic stress:
