“Reprocessing Traumatic Memories of Work Injuries (EMR Course):
Practical Clinical Strategies for Trauma Recovery and Return to Work”

Course Description
Trauma symptoms related to work injuries are very common. These symptoms often are a hidden cause of delayed recovery as, unfortunately, patients rarely disclose their psychological symptoms related to trauma. Eidetic memory reprocessing (EMR) is a brief, limbic-based, structured exposure that is highly effective for addressing trauma symptoms and facilitating trauma recovery and return to work. EMR is straightforward to learn and can be performed in the office by a trained health care provider. This course will explore the physiological basis of post-traumatic symptoms and the foundational concepts, criteria, and procedure for performing EMR therapy. At the end of the course, you will be able to identify trauma symptoms that can be treated by this technique and effectively apply EMR to aid injured workers in trauma recovery in the clinic setting.
