A few reasons we’re different from other training programs.

The PTI Approach

EMDR is an empirically, evidence-based therapeutic treatment option.   PTI’s training program augments traditional EMDR with a trauma-informed approach that helps clinicians create the best therapeutic conditions for healing.  This approach is a simplified method for treating attachment and bodily-based trauma responses.  It provides the added resources clients need to lower their defenses and optimize their mental health transformation.

The concept of “The Answer” is unique to the PTI approach.  This proprietary concept offers a compassionate assumption: whatever behaviors exist, including the client’s symptoms, exist because they were helpful or adaptive in some way.  Identifying and acknowledging the value that these adaptations provide, prior to addressing how they can later hinder our growth, allows the client space to discover self-compassion.  This approach also encompasses awareness of the ways in which the autonomic nervous system becomes sensitized to fear responses, as well as the ways that attachment patterns surface in all phases of the treatment process.  These are important additions that the PTI approach brings to traditional EMDR therapy training.

The way we teach is as important as what we are teaching.  We demonstrate and embody nonviolence, mindfulness, compassion and self-awareness as we set the conditions for the transformation of learning and healing.  By making the training safe, the complex ideas simple, and the atmosphere as fun as possible, the learning experience is optimized.
