Several evidence-informed approaches to trauma can be immensely helpful to clients. However, a lot of these therapies are either rigid, making it difficult to stay client-centered, or vague, and mainly rooted in theory. Neural Desensitization and Integration Training (NDIT) is a module-based, exposure, trauma-focused approach to therapy for PTSD that integrates elements from EMDR, multichannel eye movement integration, prolonged exposure, IFS, and other therapies. The main goal of NDIT is to help clients titrate into processing traumatic material, so that flooding and retraumatization are minimized. Additionally, NDIT focuses on what clients do outside of session, and ways to facilitate progress though homework exercises. This one-day training will introduce you to the basic skills of NDIT, that you can begin incorporating into your practice right away!
This training will provide participants clinical knowledge and tools to:
a). State at least three components of neural networks.
b). Describe why bilateral movement can facilitate desensitization to distressing thoughts or memories.
c). Identify two ways to alter visual or auditory memory components that decreases their intensity during imaginal exposure.
d). Name three therapeutic approaches that NDIT utilizes.
e). State the three steps of memory reconsolidation.
f). List the main modules of NDIT.
The target audience for this event includes psychologists, social workers, counselors, MFT’s, psychiatrists and other clinical mental health professionals.
