Several evidence-informed approaches to trauma can be immensely helpful to clients. However, many of these therapies are either rigid and overly prescriptive, making it difficult to stay client-centered, or vague, mainly rooted in theory.

Neural Desensitization and Integration Training (NDIT) is a module-based, exposure, trauma-focused approach to therapy for PTSD that integrates elements from EMDR, multichannel eye movement integration, prolonged exposure, IFS, and somatic therapies. The main goal of NDIT is to help clients titrate into processing traumatic material, so that flooding and retraumatization are minimized. NDIT is also evidence-informed and flexible, which encourages clinicians to create individualized, client-focused trauma treatment plans that can be easily integrated with other therapies.

Additionally, NDIT focuses on what clients do outside of session, and ways to facilitate progress though homework exercises. This one-day training will introduce you to basic trauma processing skills of NDIT, that you can begin incorporating into your practice right away.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this workshop, the learner will be able to:

  1. State at least three components of neural networks.
  2. Name at least three brain areas impacted by psychological trauma.
  3. Describe why bilateral movement can facilitate desensitization to distressing thoughts, fears, or memories.
  4. Identify two ways to alter visual or auditory memory components that decreases their intensity during imaginal exposure.
  5. State the three steps of memory reconsolidation.

Schedule

Rough Schedule/Agenda:

9-9:30am: Introduction to NDIT, and Trauma Treatment Roadmap

  1. Building the alliance
  2. Reconnecting with the Body
  3. Regulating the Stress Response
  4. Strengthening the Mind
  5. Processing Trauma

9:30-10:30am: Neuroscience of trauma, PTSD, and psychotherapy

The Trauma Treatment Roadmap is based on how the brain processes information, learns, re-learns, and changes. The five steps aim to facilitate therapeutic brain change in the five main regions of the brain impacted by trauma:

  1. Amygdala
  2. Hippocampus
  3. Insula
  4. Cingulate cortex
  5. Prefrontal cortex

10:30-10:45am: Break

10:45-11:00am: Three Ways to Change the Brain

  • Bottom-Up Techniques
  • Top-Down Techniques
  • Horizontal Techniques

11:10-11:30am: The Five Modules of Neural Desensitization and Integration Training: Specific Techniques and Contraindications

11:30-11:45am: Introduction to Neural Networks

11:45am-12:00pm: Memory Reconsolidation Steps and Concepts

12:00-1:00pm: Lunch

1:00-1:30: Identifying Trauma Treatment Targets, How to Create a Trauma Profile

1:30-2:00pm: Selecting Targets for Trauma Processing (moments in time, not entire memory)
