This intermediate to advanced workshop assists the clinician in making a paradigm shift from defenses to the AIP perspective within the EMDR Therapy model of maladaptive memory networks, which protect other, more vulnerable, memory networks. With the instruction of this course, the clinician will develop a stronger case conceptualization, reduce his or her own countertransference, and utilize installing resources effectively.
