2011 Veterans Mental Health Conference
"EMDR in the treatment of trauma & substance abuse."
Susan & Sara presented a 3 hour workshop to over 100 of California's Orange County Mental Health care providers at their Veteran's Conference. They addressed the topics; What is EMDR? What is the current research saying? EMDR with PTSD & Substance Use Disorder, An overview of their research with the Integrated Trauma Treatment Program in Drug Court, & EMDR & The Military: challenges & recommendations.
"Our hope was to educate and inspire clinicians from the county and military about EMDR. The audience was very enthusiastic and had excellent questions. Many participants asked about training opportunities and others said they were trained years ago and are re-inspired to obtain further training. This was exciting. We are grateful to Dr. Joshua Taylor and Nicole Ramirez from The Center of Excellence and Dr. Chu from the University of California, Irvine for their encouragement and support of this workshop."
