As anti-racism awareness grows, a need arises to resource black clinicians who absorb stories of racism from their clients. Previous research focused on preventing secondary trauma in therapists mostly by increasing coping skills. Little research exists on race-related secondary trauma and the treatment of race-related trauma in therapists. These presenters will detail the use of EMDR-IGTP-OTS in decreasing traumatic stress in black clinicians.

Without consideration of the lived experiences of African Americans or acknowledgement of stigma, shame and historical trauma, the relevance of identity, privilege and inclusion in treatment is obscured.

The studies and our cases show that EMDR is at least equal to CBT treatment in depression (equivalence) but seems to result in more complete remissions than other interventions. EMDR may also lead to a decreased risk of relapses, as an incomplete remission increases the risk of relapse 5 times. In the workshop, the evidence will be presented and our treatment manual (DeprEndr protocol) will be introduced.
