EMDR Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) Workshop

A Comprehensive Approach for Early EMDR Intervention


The Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) is part of a comprehensive approach to Early EMDR Intervention (EEI). This workshop incorporates and extends existing protocols within a new conceptual framework, together with additional measures for containment and safety. Checking for sub-clinical sticking points which can obstruct Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) and don’t necessarily show up on the DSM radar, the R-TEP may reduce sensitization and accumulation of trauma memories.


This R-TEP Workshop will be taught with video case illustrations, live demonstration and a practicum.
