EMDR Recent + Group Traumatic Episode Protocols


EMDR Recent + Group Traumatic Episode Protocols

These two traumatic episode therapy protocols were developed by Elan Shapiro and Brurit Laub of Israel. The goal of these protocols is to reduce the likelihood of delayed onset PTSD, depression, anxiety, OCD, substance use, relationship and health issues that can be exacerbated by trauma. They also assist in fostering resiliency in individuals who have experienced trauma of a man made or natural disaster.

The EMDR R-TEP protocol is applied when a recent event has occurred that requires containment and additional assistance with integration beyond the standard protocol. It is a comprehensive approach to treating recent events in the belief that serious trauma symptoms may be prevented by receiving early interventions. The EMDR G-TEP protocol is a group application useful for small groups including couples, families, and those impacted by the same traumatic event, such as a natural disaster or act of violence.

Reg and Bill were trained by Elan Shapiro and Brurit Laub in 2010 and authorized to provide the group EMDR recent event protocol training.

We are excited to add the new G-REP (Group Resource Enhancement Protocol) to the full suite of early interventions shared during this two day training! We will cover:

  1. Four Elements Resource Technique
  2. Group Resource Enhancement Protocol
  3. Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol
  4. Group Traumatic Episode Protocol

These four protocols and techniques blend seamlessly to meet a range of needs including assessment, stabilization, individual reprocessing, and group reprocessing. No matter what your circumstances are for delivery of therapy, you’ll learn where to start and how to progress through multiple treatment options.

The two-day, comprehensive training leads you step by step through research validated protocols for working with survivors of recent trauma both individually and in groups. While EMDR Basic Training provides an overview of one of the recent events protocols, we will shed light on broader applications of how and when to use EMDR and EMDR-derived techniques for early trauma intervention.
