Flash Technique Webinar

Time: 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM Pacific Time
Date: August 17th, 2024

Presenters: Philip Manfield, Ph.D. and Lewis Engel, Ph.D.

The Flash Technique, originally developed for the preparation phase of EMDR, is now evidence-based and can be used outside of EMDR by trauma-trained clinicians. This intervention allows clients to reduce the disturbance associated with extremely painful memories with relatively little pain. Publications in peer-reviewed journals have documented its use with earthquake victims, health care providers working with COVID-19 patients, dissociative identity disorder, highly dissociative homeless men, motor vehicle accidents, and complaints of traumatic life events. Many new research studies are supporting the underlying principle of Flash, that focusing on a trauma or phobia consciously is significantly less effective than processing without conscious awareness of exposure to the trauma. Defenses that are normally obstacles to processing do not get activated, so the technique is especially helpful for clients who dissociate and are afraid of the intensity of their memories.

Flash is fast, effective, and easy to learn for therapists, and significant reductions in disturbance often happen in as few as 15 minutes. After attending this webinar, participants will be able to apply what they have learned and begin using the Flash Technique immediately in their psychotherapy practices. Additionally, they will be able to recognize and address many of the clinical difficulties that can sometimes arise.

The webinar will be held online from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm Pacific time (6:00pm CEST). The cost is $119 if you do not need CE/EMDRIA Credits and $129 if you do.
