Hybrid In-person/Online Flash Technique Workshop

Melbourne, Australia

November 24th, 2023

Presenters: Philip Manfield, Ph.D. and Nina Zadurian


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.

Everyone who registers will receive access to the webinar recording to watch at their convenience for one month following the live presentation. Don’t want to wait until this webinar?

In the past six years, eleven papers have been published supporting its effectiveness. Together with his colleague, Lewis Engel, PhD, he has presented introductions to the Flash Technique at five national and international conferences, conducted webinars and workshops in eleven countries in addition to the United States, and trained over 13,000 clinicians.
