After developing and practicing RET, Laurie began focusing on developing methods for teaching the technique effectively, delineating the specific skills and developing protocols for therapists to use as guidelines for effective intervention.
She brings to the workshops a critical analysis of therapeutic interventions, drawing on research concerning the neurobiology of traumatic memories and how and why memories change.
The initial two day training program, called, "Deactivating the Buttons" provides sufficient training for those already with therapeutic training and experience to immediately apply the learning with clients.
The Advanced workshop is an opportunity for therapists to address more complex issues, receive supervised practice and deepen their work by integrating aspects of imagery rescripting.
DEACTIVATING THE BUTTONS : INTEGRATING A TRAUMA LENS INTO A COUNSELLING FRAMEWORK

This 2 day workshop is skill-based and experiential, requiring participants to take the roles of both therapist and client.
