Aboriginal trauma: would eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EDMR) be of some relevance for Australian Indigenous recovery from trauma?

 

Overview

The Australian Psychological Society and the Eastern Sydney Medicare Local are hosting a moderated online webinar which will discuss the cultural safety of eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EDMR) as it may or may not relate to healing Aboriginal trauma or trauma experienced by Aboriginal individuals, families, groups or communities.

The event aims to discuss the perceptions of clinicians and other health professionals of the usefulness of EDMR as a tool for working with Aboriginal clients and community members affected by trauma, as currently there is limited evidence for the best practice use of this tool.

The webinar will be presented by Kelleigh Ryan, Dr Gary Fulcher and Dr Christopher Lee.

When: Wednesday 30 July 2014
Time: 3pm to 4.15pm AEST.

This event is suitable for psychologists working with or having some interest in Aboriginal health, social workers, interested EDMR practitioners, general practitioners, psychiatrists, Aboriginal health and other allied health professionals, Aboriginal community members, Aboriginal elders, Aboriginal community controlled sectors, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people with an interest in Aboriginal health and wellbeing.

No prior knowledge of EDMR is needed.

Participation in this event is free however registration is essential and must be received by midnight Monday 28 July 2014.
