Eye Movement Integration (EMI) was developed by Connirae and Steve Andreas of Colorado, USA in 1989. EMI is a neuro-therapeutic method for accessing and integrating traumatic memories and experiences. EMI is astonishingly rapid in its effects, freeing clients from the burden of unresolved memories of almost any form of trauma - from childhood abuse to car accidents; from rape to natural disasters to combat situations - in just one to three treatment sessions.

Research has shown that our eye movements are connected to our memory networks. Through guided eye movements we can also access these memory networks and reprocess them. Through the eyes we thus have a perfect entrance to the brain and old trauma memory.


EMI LEVEL 1 - Fundamental

During EMI Level 1 training, the primary emphasis will be placed on the roots of EMI, areas of application, EMI and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). We will also explore new information on how we register trauma, as well as eye movements and the mind. The evaluation of the client, coping strategies and resources, planning the treatment, preparing the client for intervention, exploring traumatic memory networks, utilizing the 24 eye movement patterns, concluding EMI and ending the session. This workshop involves practical practice sessions. At completion of this workshop professionals will be able to use EMI in their practices.
