Research Limitations and Potential Risks


  1. Determine the role of the autonomic nervous system in trauma and anxiety symptomology.
  2. Articulate the clinical implications of the freeze response in trauma treatment.
  3. Characterize the potential neurobiological mechanisms of change in the empirically validated​ EMDR approach.
  4. Specify how EMDR techniques can build dual awareness in clients to treat the avoidance that makes trauma and anxiety treatment challenging.
  5. Employ the 8 Phases of the EMDR protocol.
  6. Determine which clients you should use EMDR with.
  7. Appraise the relevance of Polyvagal Theory and early trauma in EMDR work.
  8. Communicate the central principle of the Adaptive Information Processing Theory and establish how it informs the EMDR approach.
  9. Analyze resourcing strategies from EMDR that clinicians can use to help facilitate the processing of trauma.
  10. Specify the steps clinicians must take to emphasize safety during EMDR sessions.
  11. Determine how EMDR can be modified to treat anxiety disorders.
  12. Differentiate between EMDR strategies recommended for trauma and EMDR strategies recommended for anxiety.
  13. Characterize how EMDR techniques can be used to reinforce and activate positive neural networks.
  14. Defend how EMDR can be modified to work with complex/developmental trauma to directly treat traumatic memories.
  15. Evaluate strategies that can help foster the critical connection between client and therapist in​ EMDR therapy.
  16. Formulate the order of operations for attachment-based EMDR treatment to resolve relational trauma.
  17. Articulate how EMDR can be modified to work with Borderline Personality Disorder, Dissociative Identity Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
