Eye Movement Integration TM (EMITM) is a brief, effective therapy which produces lasting results. You will learn to treat PTSD, phobia, anxiety, addictions, recent critical incident debriefing, and various other clinical issues --- often in one to three sessions. Importantly, follow-up visits are rarely needed.
EMITM, is an exceptionally effective desensitization and re-processing treatment. Unlike other eye movement methods, EMITM does not require or encourage age regression. Therefore, the concerns of false memory and/or the likelihood of re-traumatizing your client are avoided. Furthermore, the client is encouraged to find the answer within and utilize her/his own resources for change and to heal.
Managed care. Managed care companies demand short-term treatment. Current research demonstrates that time-limited therapy is as effective for many issues as the more established lengthy approaches. Until recently, clients who attended only a few sessions were often considered “not ready” for therapy. What was needed is a better method. Eye Movement IntegrationTM therapy is a better method. Further, you will frequently be able to produce lasting results for the client in one or at most a few sessions.
In this workshop you will learn:
The principles on which EMITM is based and the
essential skills required to utilize the technique
How to gather and organize the required
information from the client and how to use the
EMITM method as a short-term treatment.
How to individualize the EMITM approach to fit
each client’s unique needs.
How to use several alternative methods including Visual-Kinesthetic Dissociation and Pattern Interruption techniques when EMITM is unproductive.

Eye Movement IntegrationTM (EMITM) is rooted in part on the work of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. who advocated treatment methods which interrupted habitual behavioral patterns, and in part on original research into eye movements and brain processing conducted by Robert Dilts at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1977. The current EMITM procedure evolved from the eye movement pattern interruption therapy techniques Dilts first introduced in 1981.
EMITM is a practical, short-term intervention for treating phobia, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, addictions, critical incident and other clinical issues. Also, the EMITM technique can be paired with diverse methods and incorporated into the framework of each individual therapist. The EMITM approach is “co-active” and encourages the client to use his/her own strengths and personal resources.
Why attend this workshop? Because, you want step-by step instruction in effective methods. And you want supervised practice in these skills and techniques, so you can put them to immediate use in your work with clients.
What’s unique about this training? The instructors are committed to teaching. The focus is on training you to use these methods, not just showing how well the trainers do demonstrations. Your training will consist of lectures, demonstrations and exercises in small groups, where you will learn the elements and the structure of the Eye Movement IntegrationTM therapy. There will be time to practice EMITM with your colleagues during the workshop.

Respectful, intelligent, competent training! I just let go of a 33 year-old anxiety. That is priceless!
Barbara A. Bruno, Ph.D.
I was troubled by PTSD that was causing me increasing distress despite years of psychotherapy. During the Eye Movement IntegrationTM seminar, I volunteered to be a demonstration subject and after an amazingly brief intervention, the response is gone. It has been two months since the seminar and I have had no recurrence. It is wonderful!!
L. Merl, LICSW
A terrific workshop. It was beautifully presented in a way that I could easily incorporate. The EMITM techniques are now part of my everyday practice, and best of all, they are truly effective.
Nelson S. Howe, M.A., A.C.E.T.
When I bought my 4-wheel drive car, I thought it would never skid no matter what. I was wrong. After an accident in which it spun out on ice and hit a guard rail, I began to experience panic attacks while driving regardless the road conditions. From that point on, I was especially fearful whenever the roads were wet or icy. At the AIM/AHTA EMITM training seminar, I volunteered to be a demonstration subject for the Eye Movement IntegrationTM procedure. The demonstration took less than 20 minutes including follow-up discussion with the class members.
It has been two years since the seminar and I continue to be amazed at the ongoing benefit. I now drive with appropriate caution for the road conditions instead of experiencing panic as I did before attending the EMITM program.
Susan Zorn, Ph.D.
Excellent. I have attended many seminars & workshops: but never have I gotten my $ worth like this!
