16th Annual Northern California EMDRIA Regional Meeting

April 4, 2020

Location: Niles Hall at Preservation Park, Oakland

Fee: $60 includes lunch and free parking

Optional CA BBS CE credit is available for an additional $20 for the six hour session. See below for more information about CE credits.

Last year this conference filled, and we were unable to accept registrations at the door;  lunch will only be guaranteed for fully-paid registrations received on or before Saturday, March 28, 2018. We order a quantity of lunches based on paid registrations. Lunches for later registrants may be available if there are enough.

Eligibility: Registration for the 2020 Northern California EMDRIA Regional Meeting is open to all clinicians who have completed any part of an EMDRIA-approved basic EMDR training. 

Cancellation: Reservations may be cancelled for a full refund up until one week prior to the event; after that date, no refunds will be given. If you register and pay for the presentation and do not attend and do not cancel, your registration fee will be forfeited. If you register but your check is not received within a week of your registration, your registration may be voided and your place made available to someone else.

CE Credits: This presentation is approved for 6 units of CA BBS CE credits.  TO RECEIVE CE CREDIT’S PARTICIPANTS MUST COMPLETE THE ENTIRE DAY (SIX HOURS).

6 EMDRIA credits have been applied for and are under review. EMDRIA CE credits are only needed for those EMDRIA members who are “certified” (or are applying for certification) and those who are “approved consultants.”

There is no additional charge for EMDRIA credits; however, you will need let us know if you require EMDRIA credits when you register (via check or online). If you send a check for $80, we will assume that you wish to obtain CA BBS CE’s @ $20 for the 6 hours. This cost is up from the past 12 years due to a policy that the BBS has adopted making the process of getting approval for CE’s difficult and quite time consuming.

Transportation/Directions: Preservation Park is in downtown Oakland at 13th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way.  It is a few blocks south from the 12th street exit/entrance of US 980 freeway, which is also CA 24. You can reach Preservation Park by BART by taking the 12th St downtown station and walking about 5 blocks north on 12th Street.

Parking: Parking arrangements will be the same as last year. You can park in the garage directly across the street from the main gate of Preservation Park, and there will be NO CHARGE. We have paid the city to keep this garage open for us on Saturday. The parking garage entrance is directly across the street from Preservation Park at the corner of Martin Luther King, Jr. Way and 12th Street. Park in any open spot (there are 200) including those that say “PERMIT ONLY.” Exit the Martin Luther King Jr. Way side of the lot, and cross diagonally to Preservation Park. PLEASE NOTE: All vehicles MUST be removed from the garage by 6pm or they will not be retrievable until Monday morning!

2020 Presenter

John Hartung

Two Techniques for EMDR: Strengthening resilience and weakening the links between positive experiences and addictive urges

This workshop will introduce a collection of unique techniques and approaches to EMDR therapy. Dr. Hartung has been an EMDR trainer internationally for decades. During that time he has developed enhancements to basic EMDR procedures and has been a steady voice for progress in the use of EMDR. A professor in the psychology department of University of Colorado, he has also been a strong advocate of testing new innovations with solid research. In this workshop he shares with us some of the innovations in EMDR therapy that he has considered most important over his twenty five years teaching EMDR.
