Impact Statement from Gerard Ilaria, LCSW, Headstrong Clinical Director

Had we not been trained by Dr. Laurel Parnell back in 2013, Headstrong would not have looked remotely like the national program it has become, and thousands of veterans would not have received the quality and type of care they did, saving countless lives.  Our exposure to the modified protocol, in particular, has positively impacted our clinical outcomes and our clients’ lives.

The four presenters will explain Headstrong, a national EMDR trauma treatment program that utilizes 250 EMDR trained trauma therapists in 27 cities to heal both the developmental and combat related trauma of its more than 1,000 veteran clients. Outcome data will be presented as well as common themes in the work with this population. We will then break down how EMDR works best with this population, and how each of the 8 phases may differ between a veteran and non-military veteran client, including during the COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, video will be used to further illustrate the above themes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Conduct this model in behavioral health setting and measure outcomes.
  • Demonstrate skills that have prepared you to work with a veteran and military service population, anticipating themes and variations in the work to match the population.
  • Identify how to anticipate the connection between adult military trauma and how the traumas and NC’s trace back to early childhood trauma
