EMDR Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) developed by Elan Shapiro and Bruit Laub and Group Traumatic Episode Protocol (G-TEP) developed by Elan Shapiro have been demonstrated to be effective in promoting containment and saftey while processing recent traumas.
A training will be held on April 27 & 28, 2018 at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, Windermere, Florida. Check back for more information or visit www.emdrhap.org to locate other trainings throughout the conuntry.

R-TEP/G-TEP Training July 8 – 9, 2016
In response to the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, a full R-TEP/G-TEP two day training was offered on Friday, July 8 – Saturday, July 9, 2016, at Stetson University – Celebration. The aim of this advanced training was to better prepare trained EMDR therapists to treat those affected by this horrific event.
R-TEP/G-TEP Workshop – Orlando March 2016
An intensive training in two useful EMDR protocols, R-TEP and G-TEP was held for the greater Orlando community on March 11 & 12, 2016 at St. Luke’s Community Counseling Center, Winderemere, FL. It was conducted by trainer Regina Morrow Robinson and trainer-in-training William Brislin. Additionally, trainer Josie Juhasz flew in from Washington state to lend support and assistance.
Here are some highlights:
The Recent Traumatic Episode Protocol (R-TEP) is a comprehensive conceptual framework that incorporates Early EMDR Intervention (EEI) along with innovative measures for containment and safety to create an effective protocol for reducing sensitization and accumulation of trauma memories. Increasingly, research supports that early interventions help to minimize longterm negative effects of exposure to traumatic events. Amazingly, many of those who do not have clinically significant symptoms following exposure to a trauma will develop PTSD if left untreated. Treating trauma early drastically reduces the likelihood that symptoms will develop later.
- G-TEP is a new group protocol. Based on the principles of R-TEP, this group protocal is useful for treating large numbers of people following a disaster. The workshop participants quickly discovered that this can also be a valuable intervention for families, couples, and in schools or work place settings.
- Trauma Recovery Networks (TRNs) – exist throughout the world to mobilize EMDR therapists in the event of disasters. For information about the greater Oralndo TRN click here. For information regarding TRNs in other locations follow this link: Trauma Recovery – EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs
