EMDR Phase 2 Resourcing Tools

We all deal with trauma daily. To be effective as therapists and help our clients, we need effective Resourcing Tools to aid in the therapeutic process. Resourcing Tools aid clients in maintaining a sense of safety and well-being in therapy as well as living in today’s world. We may be the first example to many of our clients to demonstrate positive coping strategies for life. Today’s world is more chaotic than ever, and it is critical that we know healthy coping strategies to share with client’s that do not have these skills and/or are trapped in a negative cycle of stressors. This workshop is meant to be experiential as well as informative. Our goal is to share a variety of Resourcing Tools that everyone needs in times of instability and change. These Resourcing Tools can help everyone we deal with; they need a set of reliable tools and techniques that enhances treatment and ones’ sense of well-being and safety.

We as therapist’s need to know and demonstrate effective coping tools to enable client’s to trust in us, to learn those resources, and be able to apply them for themselves.

Workshop Description

Dr. Ken Vanderlip and Susie Vanderlip CSP, CPAE will share and discuss key components of Legacy of Hope®, Mindfulness, and The Way of a Compassionate Warrior. They will reinforce how critical the work of therapists and other healthcare providers is in response to the global pandemic, chaos, excessive stress, unprecedented challenges, trauma, and fearfulness. Simply by being in the psycho-therapeutic profession, therapists are already on the path to being a compassionate warrior. Dealing with stress and trauma puts the therapist on that path.

The workshop provides EMDR Phase 2 Resourcing Tools that are vital for practitioners’ own professional balance and effectiveness. In addition, practitioners will learn ways of resourcing their clients/patients to assist the healing. The workshop will also provide experiential moments in resourcing tools and validate the importance of mastering them and enabling the clinician to effectively resource their clients/patients.

The Workshop explores and practices techniques to improve the therapist’s resiliency and enhance their capacity to maintain a clear mind and relaxed and fearless state. These skills enable the therapist to avoid being triggered by client processing. A key role as therapists is to bring calm and steadiness amid the client’s chaos, so the client can do their work to heal – to find their own calm, steadiness, resilience, and positive belief in self. That requires the therapist to be compassionate and mindful as they work with clients by applying resourcing tools for themselves and resourcing the client as needed for self-regulation.

All the tools presented are effective as EMDR Phase 2 Resourcing Tools. In the workshop, tools are shared to use in preparation and skill building, necessary to help the client connect with functional information and integrate helpful, positive experiences. These tools are often key to the internal stabilization that many clients need to do the deeper clearing processing that EMDR provides. These tools help build and fortify the functional memory network that will be needed in EMDR Phases 4 thru 6.

Along with self- regulation, a significant point of being a Compassionate Warrior is becoming fearless as a therapist. This will also be explored with both lecture and experiential components to enhance that capacity within us all. De-Stress for Success® - EMDR Phase 2 Resourcing Tools can help increase both longevity and effectiveness as a psychotherapist as well as support our clients in their therapeutic process.
