Workshop Content:

EMI Level 1 - Fundamental

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.  

 The scope of the workshops is comprehensive, yet the structure of the workshops facilitates progressive acquisition of competence. In the Fundamental EMI workshop the primary emphasis will be placed on the roots of EMI, areas of application, EMI and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In the level 1l workshop attention will also be given to how we register trauma, 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, utilising the 24 eye movement patterns, concluding EMI and ending the sessions. At completion of this workshop professionals will be able to use EMI in their practices.

 Anticipated outcomes:

The format of the workshop entails daily practical exercises under the personal supervision of the presenter. The workshop will end with 1 hour of lecture/discussion of the ethical, cultural and legal aspects regarding this intervention strategy.

EMI Group Supervision

The scope of the group supervision is to create an opportunity where cases are discussed and each participant can learn from each other under the supervision of the trainer. Also with each group supervision 2 additional topics are discussed.

Resource Therapy:

Resource Therapy is a psychotherapy, developed by Professor Gordon Emmerson, combining his knowledge of Ego State Therapy, cognitive psychology and client experience.

 Gordon Emmerson is Honorary Fellow in the School of Psychology at Victoria University, Melbourne. He is the author of the books 'Ego State Therapy' (2003, 2007, 2010), Advanced Techniques in Therapeutic Counselling (2006), Healthy Parts Happy Self (2012), and Resource Therapy Primer (2014).

Resource therapy is a brief, strength based, trauma informed parts therapy. It is based on the understanding that the personality is composed of multifaceted parts. These parts are called our resources and we have many resource parts

 Resource Therapy had its genesis in the widely known Ego State Therapy and has a rich pedigree in theory and practice. It is also known as Advanced Ego State Therapy as hypnosis is not needed to work with the resource parts directly.

 A Resource Therapist is trained to help the client deal with their unwanted thoughts, feelings, beliefs, reactions and emotions, getting to the very heart of why they have come for help. By bringing the part of the personality that needs help into the conscious, the therapist works directly with the part that is locked in pain, fear, abandonment, neglect, hurt, guilt, trauma, resentment, anger and shame and other unhelpful emotional burdens. Resource therapists facilitate full expression, validation, and empowerment rather than an internal family therapy. This facilitates a quicker, deeper and longer lasting change. 

 Resource States may be Normal or Pathological. We want all our personality states to be normal. Resource Therapy helps states move to normality.

 Anticipated outcomes:

The format of the workshop entails daily practical exercises under the personal supervision of the presenter. The workshop will end with 1 hour of lecture/discussion of the ethical, cultural and legal aspects regarding this intervention strategy. Participants will be evaluated on a live demonstration format, where they will have to demonstrate their competence after this intensive training programme.
