    The Greater Sacramento EMDR Network presents the
    2nd Annual Symposium on Trauma

    EMDR 2.O & the Treatment of Complex PTSD and Dissociation

    Thurs, April 13, 2023    Ad de Jongh and Suzy Matthijssen will present EMDR 2.0 

    Friday, April 14, 2023    Treating Complex PTSD and Dissociation using EMDR 2.0

    Join us for this exclusive Northern California opportunity to learn the science behind EMDR 2.0 and how it can be used to treat Complex PTSD and Dissociation. Ad de Jongh and Suzy Matthijssen are the primary researchers in Netherlands who developed this remarkably fast and effective modification of EMDR first described by Francine Shapiro. 

    This training is fully approved by EMDRIA and 12 hrs of CECs will be available for EMDRIA credit and your professional organization.

    The training will be both in-person and live-streamed. Space is limited to 80 people in-person, but is unlimited for virtual attendance. Sign up early to reserve your space.

    EMDR 2.0

    is a version of EMDR with a number of adjustments based on
    clinical experience with patients who have complex PTSD, scientific research into the working memory theory, and the effects of working memory-taxing tasks on traumatic memories. 

    EMDR 2.0 is based on the premise that:
    • if the client is better motivated,
    • if the memory is better activated, and
    • if the patient’s working memory is taxed more strongly,
    this has a positive influence on the effectiveness and efficiency of EMDR therapy.

    Treating Complex PTSD and Dissociation. There are a number of challenges when treating patients with Complex PTSD. These include:
    • client fears in confronting their memories and emotions,
    • the possibility of severe abreactions,
    • dissociative reactions that may limit access to trauma memories,
    • the possibility that SUD levels do not decline, and
    • that cognitive distortions (e.g., guilt) do not shift.
    • In addition, other issues that are consistent with Complex  PTSD (e.g., regarding negative self-concept, emotional dysregulation and difficulties in relationships) often need concurrent clinical work.
    The purpose of this engaging workshop is to teach participants effective clinical approaches
    and treatment techniques to deal with individuals with Complex PTSD features, including
    dissociation. The training will be illustrated by various case presentations and multiple
    video segments of treatment sessions with a wide range of individuals suffering from
    Complex PTSD. Some techniques will be demonstrated live and participants will be given
    opportunities and guidance to practice with the new material.
