Flash

The Flash Technique

A 3 hour training for trauma trained mental health professionals.

CEs, 3 EMDRIA CEs 

This is a hands-on clinical skills training featuring the Flash technique, a brief intervention to reduce memory-related distress. Flash is a recently developed therapy procedure that involves having the client at least partially resolve a traumatic memory without consciously engaging it. Preliminary research has found Flash to be non-distressing, safe, rapid, and effective. In this workshop, participants will learn about Flash research and theory, view a demonstration, and participate in supervised small-group practice.  Full documentation can be found here.

Participants will be able to:

  • Name and sequence the experiences the brain requires for memory reconsolidation (trauma healing).
  • Describe the state of the research on Flash.
  • Determine when Flash would be appropriate.
  • Provide Flash to therapy clients.
  • Problem-solve a Flash session when challenges arrise.
