A Clinicians Guide for Treating Active Military and Veteran Populations - the webinar CURRENTLY BEING RESCHEDULED

This two-day, 12 hour webinar presented August 28-29, 2021 is based on Dr. Hurley's recent book published by Springer (2020).  It is presented in two parts.  Part 1 addresses the application of the EMDR eight phases and three prong approach to a wide range of clinical presentations from acute stress to complex PTSD with dissociative features.  During the second day, Part 2 addresses the application of EMDR therapy in the treatment of military and veterans with special needs including suffering with traumatic brain injury (TBI), moral injury, military sexual trauma (MST), and suicidality. A section on "When EMDR therapy does not work (with some therapists)" is presented.  The application of EMDR Early Intervention (EMDR EEI) is discussed for use among first-responders/military for post-critical incident and post-deployment applications.  EEI applications for military occupational stress programs both downrange and home base are presented.

These webinars are designed to enhance the participant's clinical skills for providing effective treatment to these special populations.
