EYE MOVEMENT INTEGRATION TRAINING
EMI is a neuro-therapeutic method for accessing and integrating traumatic memories and experiences. EMI is astonishingly rapid in its effects, freeing clients from the burden of unresolved memories of almost any form of trauma – from childhood abuse to car accidents; from rape to natural disasters to combat situations. Its effect is in just one to six treatment sessions.
Eye Movement Integration (EMI) is a powerful, brief and very respectful treatment modality for the resolution of trauma and various traumatic experiences. It was developed by Connirae and Steve Andreas of Colorado, USA in 1989. It is often confused with EMDR, but different in that it uses 22 instead of just 2 guided Slow Pursuit Eye Movements across the entire visual field of the client. EMI provides a client-oriented approach toward their traumatic experiences and it is adapted to a phenomenological field of trauma of the client.
The power of EMI lies in its ability to access the multisensory, somatic and affective dimensions of a traumatic memory. It taps into the brain’s ability to heal itself by giving it another chance to process and integrate the fragmented traumatic memories.
About EMI Training:
During the EMI training the operational and technical concepts of psychotraumatology are provided, including the various information processing models, evidence based (Trauma Focused), CBT, Cognitive Process (CP) (Foa & Kozak et al).
Therapists immediately learn to make a clinical conceptualization of their clients’ cases, according to the SARI Model (Philips, 1995), they learn and understand how traumatic and stressful events in the patient’s life may have contributed to the discomfort theye present when they arrive in therapy. Strategies and resources are provided to immediately identify the targets and events that can connect to the history and symptomatology of their clients. Once the events have been identified, Big Trauma and small trauma, thanks to the structured interview, you will deepen how to make a work plan with EMI according to the therapeutic objectives.
