Day 1:  Masterclass EMDR 2.0 in Clinical Practice (2024)

EMDR 2.0 is a version of EMDR therapy based on the standard EMDR protocol, but with some powerful adaptations related to the implementation of the therapy. EMDR 2.0 is based upon the working memory theory and stems from clinical experience with intensive treatment programs of individuals suffering from complex PTSD and scientific research into the effects of various types of working memory-taxing tasks on traumatic memories. Research shows that EMDR 2.0 is not only an effective treatment approach but is also likely to help reprocess trauma memories at a faster tempo. Those who are new to EMDR 2.0 are required to first attend the 6 CE hour OnDemand course which is available this link.

In this masterclass, participants will receive the written EMDR 2.0 protocol and there will be a step-by-step guide and demonstration of how to use it. The 2.0 developers, Ad de Jongh and Suzy Matthijssen, describe updated discoveries in the use of the 2.0 method and will demonstrate various applications and techniques such as to overcome obstacles in therapy (e.g., dissociation and comorbidity). A format will be provided for participants to describe cases of patients for whom treatment with EMDR (2.0) proved difficult as an opportunity for the trainers to further explain considerations in the use of 2.0. The training will include multiple clinical examples and video clips to illustrate aspects of treatments in clinical practice.

An additional part of the workshop will be demonstrating ways to  perform EMDR 2.0 via telehealth. This will include step-by-step instructions from MOOVD, a company that has developed methods to enhance online applications of EMDR 2.0. MOOVD representatives will provide guidance to on-site and virtual participants.
The training will provide overview information about how to become proficient in using EMDR 2.0 and information about steps to becoming an EMDR 2.0 consultant.

Learning objectives:
Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the types of conditions for which EMDR 2.0 can be used.
  2. Describe possible advantages of using EMDR 2.0 techniques and applications.
  3. Describe components of the working memory taxation theory.
  4. Describe how EMDR 2.0 can be used with individuals with complex trauma histories.
  5. Describe how EMDR 2.0 techniques can be used when dissociation prevents access to traumatic memories or when the presence of comorbid pathology seems to block reprocessing.
  6. Describe methods for using EMDR 2.0 via online therapy.

Day 2: Treating Personality Disorders with EMDR Therapy

The personal history of individuals with a personality disorder is often marked by exposure to traumatic events or other types of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Because existing treatments for personality disorders are usually long and costly, it is essential to continue exploring alternative and complementary interventions. Nowadays, knowledge and clinical experience in regard to personality disorders have been gained in addressing ACEs by processing memories of these events through EMDR therapy. This workshop provides guidance on how to formulate an effective case conceptualization that can serve as a basis for the more efficient treatment of personality disorders with EMDR therapy, and how to set up and successfully implement treatment for patients using EMDR therapy. This approach is illustrated with a wide variety of video fragments of clinical case examples.

This is the first offering of this workshop by innovative clinicians, Ad de Jongh and Suzy Matthijssen, who provide emerging clinical research data and other findings.

Key Features:
Research supported concepts presented:

  • The latest scientific insights into the origin and treatment of the consequences of exposure to ACEs
  • Similarities and differences between PTSD, Complex PTSD and personality disorders (such as borderline personality disorder) with and without PTSD.
  • How to set up and successfully implement treatment using EMDR therapy.
  • Specific pitfalls in the treatment

Learning objectives:
Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the different types of personality disorders.
  2. List 2 or more of the latest scientific insights (presented in this training) into trauma treatment for people with a personality disorder.
  3. Identify similarities and differences between PTSD, Complex PTSD, and personality disorders (such as borderline personality disorder) with and without PTSD.
  4. Draw up a case conceptualization of a person with a personality disorder.
  5. List considerations for EMDR treatment with people with a personality disorder.
