    • Evaluation Form: Culturally Grounded EMDR: Working with Racial and Cultural Oppression

Learning Objectives

This training teaches recommendations for providing culturally attuned EMDR to survivors of racial and cultural oppression. Participants will increase their cultural awareness and humility as they learn clinical adaptations to EMDR that accompany practicing EMDR through an anti-oppressive lens and will learn culturally grounded interventions to incorporate into their clinical practice when working with individuals who have experienced trauma related to racial and cultural oppression. Dr. Alpern will teach participants about legacy attuned resourcing, target identification procedures for social and cultural oppression, and will teach participants how to clarify negative cognitions (NCs) as they relate to racialized experiences. Participants will come away equipped with deeper knowledge and clinical tools to integrate into their EMDR practice.

  • Increase cultural awareness and humility when providing EMDR treatment to clients who identify as Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC)

  • Identify adaptations to EMDR that accompany practicing through an anti-oppressive lens with BIPOC clients

  • Learn culturally grounded interventions to incorporate into EMDR practice with survivors of racial and cultural oppression
