EMDR Phase 2 Resourcing Tools Workshop

We all deal with trauma daily. To be effective as therapists and help our clients, we need effective Resourcing Tools to aid in the therapeutic process. Resourcing Tools aid clients in maintaining a sense of safety and well-being in therapy as well as living in today’s world. We may be the first example to many of our clients to demonstrate positive coping strategies for life. Today’s world is more chaotic than ever, and it is critical that we know healthy coping strategies to share with clients that do not have these skills and/or are trapped in a negative cycle of stressors and beliefs. This workshop is meant to be experiential as well as informative. Our goal is to share a variety of Resourcing Tools that everyone needs in times of instability and change. These Resourcing Tools can help everyone we deal with; they need a set of reliable tools and techniques that enhance treatment and one’s sense of well-being and safety.

We as therapist’s need to know and demonstrate effective coping tools to enable clients to trust in us, to learn those resources, and be able to apply them for themselves.

Target Audience: EMDR Practitioners: Psychologists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, Counselors and Chemical Dependency Counselors

Course Content Level: Intermediate

Workshop Description:

EMDR Phase 2 Resourcing Tools
Client Stabilization and Preparation for Trauma Reprocessing

Dr. Ken Vanderlip and Susie Vanderlip CSP, CPAE will share and discuss critical components of traumatized client presentations, resourcing, mindfulness, and The Way of a Compassionate Warrior. They will reinforce how critical the work of therapists and other healthcare providers is in response to trauma, fear and anxiety, excessive stressors, unprecedented challenges, impact from the pandemic, and global chaos.  Simply by being in the psycho-therapeutic profession, therapists are already on a path to being a compassionate warrior. Dealing with stress and trauma puts the therapist on that path. 

This workshop provides examples of Resourcing Tools to aid practitioners in learning effective ways to assist therapeutic healing.  The workshop will provide experiential moments with specific resourcing tools and validate the importance of applying them with our clients/patients.

All the tools presented are effective as EMDR Phase 2 Resourcing Tools. In the workshop, tools are shared to use in preparation and skill building, necessary to help the client connect with functional information and integrate helpful, positive experiences. These tools are often key to the internal stabilization that many clients need to do the deeper clearing processing that EMDR provides. These tools help build and fortify the functional memory network that will be needed in EMDR Phases 4 through 6.

The Workshop explores and practices techniques to improve the client’s resiliency, enhance their capacity to maintain a clear mind, and attain a relaxed and safe state. These skills enable the therapist to keep the client more readily within the “window of tolerance” for processing of the client’s stressors, trauma, and underlying causes. All the resourcing tools presented serve to bring calm and steadiness amid the client’s chaos, so the client can do their work to heal – find their own calm, steadiness, resilience, and positive belief in self. Additionally, we will explore how therapists can remain compassionate, mindful/present, and fearless as he/she works with clients and resourcing the client as needed.

Along with learning and experiencing these EMDR Phase 2 Resourcing Tools, therapists will be given the definition and exposure to the concept of being a Compassionate Warrior – becoming fearless as a therapist.  This will also be explored with both lecture and experiential components to enhance that capacity within us all for treating trauma.

EMDR Phase 2 Resourcing Tools can help increase both the effectiveness of treatment with our clients and the longevity of their resilience in life beyond treatment.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • List resourcing tools that increase their effectiveness as a psychotherapist and can enhance your client’s response to traumatic processing and enhance life skills.
