About the Event

The practice of caring for the emotional and physical needs of professionals exposed to life and death situations and the most difficult of human suffering takes its toll on those in the trenches. In these inimitable circumstances, the exposure can lead to direct traumas and/or vicarious trauma for the professional. By working in law enforcement, fire sciences, emergency services, 911 operators, emergency room staff (including doctors and nurses), child welfare workers, and even psychotherapists, these professionals experience direct or secondary trauma from their work environment. Case conceptualization will be presented through the lens of the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP) adhering to the 8 phases of EMDR therapy. This interactive workshop includes videos, and didactic material, to deepen participants’ understanding of how to implement EMDR therapy and enhance their skills in working with first responders.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Define AIP Theory specifically as it applies to working with emergency responders.
  • Identify at least 3 assessment tools for evaluating trauma in emergency responders exposed to line of duty and vicarious traumatization
