EMDR THERAPY PROTOCOLS FOR EARLY CARE AND ONGOING TRAUMATIC STRESS ©
Dr. Jarero will be teaching the two primary EMDR Therapy protocols he and his colleagues developed for early intervention and continued traumatic stress that are now a part of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) course for Peace Operations Personnel and Humanitarian Aid Workers:
- EMDR Integrative Group Treatment Protocol Adapted for Ongoing Traumatic Stress (EMDR-IGTP-OTS)
- The EMDR Protocol for Recent Critical Incidents and Ongoing Traumatic Stress (EMDR-PRECI).
- And he will teach two AIP-informed procedures for Acute Stress Syndrome Stabilization (ASSYST-Individual and ASSYST-Group) developed out of the author’s field experience working with patients outside their window of tolerance (hyper-arousal). These focus on the desensitization of the acute stress symptoms with special attention on the intrusive somatic and sensory components of the traumatic experience. The goal of these procedures is to help the patient to reduce arousal levels (inside their window of tolerance) to facilitate their AIP system in the spontaneous processing of the information. These procedures can be applied during the first hours in which the patients show severe stress symptoms and/or functioning deterioration.
The Integrative Group Treatment Protocol (EMDR-IGTP) provides individual EMDR therapy in a group setting, allowing for many individuals to be treated simultaneously. This treatment can be administered to small or large groups of people who have experienced the same type of trauma (e.g. sexual abuse, severe interpersonal violence); who have been through the same traumatic event (e.g. mass shooting, natural disaster, terrorist attack); or who share a major life challenge (e.g. chronic illness, cancer treatment, domestic violence). To date, Dr. Jarero and his team have responded to disasters on 4 continents, provided 165 treatment interventions and have trained individuals from 65 different countries. The effectiveness of this model to treat children, adolescents and adults has been validated by studies around the world through multiple case reports, field studies, randomized controlled trials and one meta-analysis.
The EMDR Protocol for Recent Critical Incidents and Ongoing Traumatic Stress (EMDR-PRECI) © was developed in the field to treat critical incidents (e.g., earthquakes, flooding, landslides) that were related to stressful events that continued for an extended period (often more than six months) and where there is not a post-

This training will be taught in Spanish with simultaneous translation into English. All materials will be provided in both Spanish and English.
Objectives of this Training:
- Learn about Early EMDR Therapy Intervention
- Learn the two AIP-informed procedures for Acute Stress Syndrome Stabilization (ASSYST-Individuals and ASSYST-Group)
- Learn about the EMDR-PRECI background and the Acute Trauma and Ongoing Traumatic Stress theoretical conceptualization based on the AIP model that expands the horizon of the EMDR-based early interventions for individuals and groups
- Learn about the EMDR-PRECI benefits and research evidence
- Understand and learn the EMDR-PRECI 8 Phases rationale
- Understand and learn the EMDR-IGTP, its Objectives, Advantages and Effectiveness and its 8 Phases rationale
- Experience a demonstration and practice of protocols including a first hand experience of the EMDR-IGTP protocol

Hours: 8:30-5:00 both days
Additional Dates are now being organized by Kelly Smyth-Dent and her organization, SCALING UP. Included in that list is a workshop that is being held in Brenham, Texas co-sponsored by Cheryl Rogers, LPC, June 7-8, 2019.
