Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be equipped to:

  • Describe how EMDR can be a suitable mental health treatment for many students/clients to address unresolved events from the past (e.g., trauma, car accidents), reduce stressors in the present (e.g., a needle phobia) and prepare for future events (e.g., exam, sports competition). In addition, outline when EMDR may not be a suitable intervention.
  • Recognize the value of emotional regulation and the various phases of the EMDR treatment after observing parts of an EMDR session conducted by Dawn McBride.
  • Describe the EMDR triangle (Leeds, 2009; McBride, 2015), and how this triangle can be shared with students/clients to help them make an informed choice to accept a referral for EMDR. 
  • Describe two emotional regulation and grounding strategies (i.e., resources) that workers/adults can teach and practice with those waiting to receive EMDR treatment.
