Following on from a successful London workshop in 2018 where Dr Philip Manfield taught the Flash Technique to over 150 EMDR therapists, we are pleased to welcome Philip back to the UK for a series of further full day workshops in Edinburgh, Manchester and London on 21st September, 28th September and 4th October respectively (6 EMDR CPD points have been awarded for Edinburgh – 6 CPD points for the other workshops have been applied for, but are not granted until after the Edinburgh workshop.  (I have been assured that this will not be a problem).  A further 3 hour ADVANCED workshop is being held on Saturday 5th October in London for those who have previously attended the full day workshop or webinar (3 EMDR CPD points award).

All workshops cost £149 and last a full day and include lunch, refreshments, handouts and CPD certificates.

Attendees can also join the flash technique listserv, currently with 950 members, providing the opportunity to receive all the latest developments in the Flash Technique literally as they happen.  Although webinars are available, this live workshop offers the possibility for attendees to actually practice conducting the flash technique with each other.

Feedback from the 2018 workshop included comments such as:

·       Literally the best workshop I have ever attended & will leave with skills that will transform my practice.

·       Brilliant – I can use Flash immediately in my EMDR practice.

·       Comprehensive, interesting and totally compelling.

·       Excellent presenter – very clear, engaging, open to questions, interactive and willing to share resources and tips.

This workshop will provide the basic skills that will allow attendees to immediately begin using the Flash Technique in their own clinical practices. Review of research that supports and explains Flash Technique are included.

Teaching methods include:

·       Videos of Flash Technique sessions

·       Live demonstrations with volunteer attendees

·       Group practicums in which all attendees experience conducting and receiving the Flash Technique with each other

·       Troubleshooting instructions

·       Q & A

·       Handouts

In October 2015, I invited Sandra Paulsen PhD, a renowned therapist and speaker to teach her Early Trauma Protocol to 90 EMDR Therapists in London.

96% rated the workshop and presenter as ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’.  Comments received from delegates such as ‘enlightening, challenging, exciting, mind blowing stuff’

Sandra returned in October 2016 to teach the remaining 2 workshops which make up her suite of advanced EMDR training:  “Looking Through the Eyes:  EMDR & Ego State Therapy across the Dissociative Continuum”  and “Toward an Embodied Self – Somatic Methods for EMDR Practitioners”

All 3 workshops are now available to view online at www.sfrankelgroup.com, and once completed alongside a short knowledge test, allow CPD points to be claimed.  The access fees range from $79 to $145 depending on which workshop is selected.
