Kendhal Hart, Psy.D., LPC-S, was trained by Dr. A.J. Popky to become a DeTUR trainer, working with the nuances of his specific steps and interweaves. Kendhal’s training and experience allow A.J. Popky’s legacy to remain intact and the excellent results of the DeTUR protocol continue.
Dr. Hart is Founder and Executive Director of the Dallas Counseling and Treatment Center with multiple offices throughout Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities of the Metroplex. She specializes in the treatment of complex trauma and anxiety-related disorders including PTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Panic Disorder. She has extensive experience working with all forms of addiction, including sex and other process addictions. Kendhal treats chronic and treatment-resistant depression, obsessive thinking, and adults who experienced childhood sexual, emotional, and psychological abuse and neglect as well as rape and other violent assaults.
Kendhal has a wealth of experience treating former military members and first responders (including EMS, 911 operators, police, SWAT, undercover officers, ATF, and psychotherapists) and really enjoys her work with this group.
Dr. Hart has a very direct, attachment-focused approach and bonds deeply with her clients which she believes makes treatment a joint venture.

At EMDR Professional Training, we honor the work and legacy of A.J. Popky, Ph.D., by continuing to offer training in his ground-breaking protocol.
Arnold (AJ) Popky, Ph.D., was instrumental in the founding of the EMDR Institute with Francine Shapiro and Robbie Dunton. As a specialist in PTSD and addiction, Dr. Popky developed the DeTUR AAIP urge protocol for addictions and dysfunctional behaviors, which he also presented in workshops and conferences internationally. A charter member of the Marine Corps League DIV. 1277, Dr. Popky was affiliated with Re-Boot Resort Camp working with military veterans. He also trained and consulted to DoD therapists at military bases around the globe, along with several drug rehabilitation centers.
Dr. Popky’s work can be found in EMDR Solutions by Robin Shapiro, Ph.D., EMDR Tool Box by Jim Knipe, Ph.D., and in Scripted Protocols by Marilyn Luber, Ph.D.
Kenhal Hart, PsyD, LPC-S, demonstrates DeTUR, an Urge Reduction Protocol for addictions and dysfunctional behaviors using the Accelerated Adaptive Information Processing Model which was developed by Arnold “AJ” Popky, PhD. During the workshop, participants practice DeTUR phases including client empowerment through resource accessing, installation of positive treatment goals, identification and desensitization of triggers, and techniques of relapse prevention.
DeTUR (Desensitization of Triggers and Urge Reprocessing) is an urge reduction protocol used as the nucleus of an overall methodology in the treatment of a wide range of chemical addictions and dysfunctional behaviors. This method was developed and refined by AJ Popky, Ph.D., through actual client interaction and feedback from other EMDR trained therapists using the same protocol. It was initially introduced as a “stop smoking” protocol at the first EMDR conference in 1992.
This eclectic addiction treatment method is trauma based, combining client internal resources with external support including the 12-step model and other known and proven treatment methods as cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused, Erickson, thought field therapy, Satire, neuro linguistic programming. The basis or foundation is the accelerated information processing using bi-lateral processing as outlined in EMDR to uncover and process the base trauma(s) or core issues as the underlying cause behind the addiction.
Though somewhat similar to the phases of EMDR, using history, assessment, diagnosis and preparation of the client. DeTUR targets the triggers that bring up the uncomfortable feelings leading to the urges. DeTUR phases also include client empowerment through resource accessing, installation of positive treatment goals, identification and desensitization of triggers, and techniques of relapse prevention. The purpose of the protocol is to uncover the core traumas and reprocess them through to completion. In achieving reprocessing the triggers no longer stimulate the need to use or act out and the new response becomes the positive treatment goal of coping and functioning successfully in life as determined by the client.
Through lecture, discussion, video clips, and practicum experiences, participants will be able to:
1. Summarize the use of the DeTUR protocol.
2. Demonstrate each step of the protocol to uncover core traumas and reprocess them to completion.
3. Identify at least one rapid technique to aid clients in accessing their own inner resources.
4. Contrast at least one difference between positive goal (PG) and positive state (PS).
5. Identify what constitutes a client’s triggers.
6. Demonstrate at least one method to elicit the client’s positive goal.
7. Recall how to anchor the positive state into the client’s philosophy.
8. Analyze how to segue from the DeTUR protocol to the EMDR model.
9. Identify at least one technique to aid client in handling relapse.
