For years, Ad de Jongh, Ph.D. and Suzy Matthijssen, Ph.D. have been researching methods to enhance trauma treatments. Enhancing Trauma Treatment, based on the title of Suzy's dissertation, is an initiative of both to provide therapists with the latest knowledge in the field of trauma treatments. Various workshops and webinars can be found on the website and new courses will be added regularly.

Webinar: EMDR for specific phobias.

 

Specific phobias are quite prevalent, sometimes associated with high levels of impairment and an important risk factor for the development of other mental disorders. We all are familiar with fears and phobias of heights, spiders, flying or the blood injection phobia. Although commonly treated with CBT, also EMDR has proven to be an effective and efficient therapy for specific phobias. In the webinar the specifics of phobias will be explained, target selection will be discussed, case examples will be shown and video’s will display the most effective treatment strategies - all of course in the light of the existing evidence base. The webinar is intended for therapists who have completed the EMDR Basic Training.

Complex PTSD - The use of targeted cognitive interweaves

 

In this new webinar of Suzy Matthijssen and Ad de Jongh they first provide an overview of the current state of evidence regarding the effective, evidence-based treatment of patients with Complex PTSD. The second part of the webinar will be devoted to powerful EMDR 2.0 approaches to deal with cognitive distortions of patients that pertain to guilt, self-hatred and self-esteem. Participants will be taught a fixed set of effective, targeted cognitive interweaves specifically aimed at treating patients who suffered from (long-term) sexual or physical abuse in early childhood. The use of the interweaves  will be illustrated by means of a variety of short video clips. The webinar is intended for therapists who have completed the EMDR Basic Training.

Powerful techniques within EMDR therapy: EMD bomb and Flash 1.0 

 

In this webinar Ad de Jongh and Suzy Matthijssen explain how one can use special EMDR 2.0 techniques which are currently being used in their intensive treatment programmes to treat patients with severe, "complex" PTSD. They will show how to deal with the ingrained avoidance patterns of patients who are too afraid and avoidant to get started with trauma-focused therapy. For this they use a wide variety of memory-taxing tasks (e.g. fast eye movements and spelling tasks; see webinar “Online EMDR 2.0”), and a number of powerful techniques such as the “EMD Bomb” and Phil Manfield's “Flash” (version 1.0). By means of extensive - and step-by-step - demonstrations they will illustrate the application of these EMDR 2.0 techniques - as well as various titration techniques to help patients to continue processing - both for its use in face-to-face therapy, and online EMDR therapy.  The webinar is suited for EMDR therapists and is intended for those who wish to expand their skills to pursue more effective EMDR-treatments.

Powerful techniques within EMDR therapy: Flashforward and Mental Video Check

 

Of all the techniques used within EMDR therapy, the Flashforward technique may not only be the most powerful, but its effectiveness is also strongly scientifically substantiated. The Flashforward technique is used to treat anxiety disorders and has proven effective in desensitizing intrusive mental representations that are at the core of anticipatory anxiety in individuals suffering from fears or phobias. In this webinar you will learn how to use the Flashforward technique in combination with the Mental Video Check, another technique, which is used as an indispensable part in the treatment of anxiety disorders with EMDR. You will also learn how to use the Flashforward technique in patients who are inclined to dissociate, for example those with complex PTSD or a borderline personality disorder. In the webinar various demonstrations will be shown illustrating both methods for their use in face to face treatments and in online EMDR therapy. The webinar is suited for EMDR therapists and is intended for those who wish to expand their skills to pursue more effective EMDR-treatments.

A webinar about working with EMDR online. How do I adjust my EMDR sessions so that I can work well online? What is possible and what is not? How do I activate the memory and what can I do to properly desensitize it? What can I use to achieve sufficient working memory load? We talk about the do's and don'ts of working online with trauma and also show how you can use different techniques online. We also teach you how to address avoidance and how to regulate tension adequately. The webinar is intended for therapists who have completed the EMDR Basic Training.
