MEMI Training—What’s New?

On-demand MEMI Webinar Now Available!

Trauma Counseling & Training of Tucson has partnered with Arizona Trauma Institute (ATI) to offer Multichannel Eye Movement Integration (MEMI) training and certification to national and international audiences. ATI is an established trauma training organization based in Mesa, Arizona with a number of international affiliate groups. To learn more about ATI’s training and certifications programs, visit www.aztrauma.org.

On October 25 & 26, 2021, the first in-person and live MEMI webinar was presented by Dr. Mike Deninger in Mesa and broadcast internationally. That presentation has now become an on-demand webinar available for purchase and viewing on the ATI website. To read about or register for the webinar visit: https://aztrauma.teachable.com/p/multichannel-eye-movement-integration-memi-a-new-model-for-treating-trauma. This program will satisfy the course requirement for MEMI certification through Trauma Institute International (TII). After viewing the program, individuals can attain MEMI certification by completing an exam based on the webinar with 80% proficiency, and after participating in four individual or group coaching sessions offered through Trauma Counseling & Training of Tucson (TCTT).

Alternatively, now that the global health crisis is improving, individuals seeking certification could also complete the training requirement for certification by attending a comparable MEMI seminar offered through TCTT. These trainings are offered to small groups and mental health organizations or in conjunction with national and international conferences. However, in all cases, the webinars, testing and certification programs will be managed by ATI and the coaching sessions by TTCT.

MEMI Certification Training for DHOH Therapists April 21-22, 2022!

An exciting new trauma certification program for deaf and hard of hearing (DHOH) mental health professionals has been developed and will be presented on April 21&22. Historically, DHOH professionals have been forced to attend seminars designed for hearing individuals in order to obtain ceu’s for licensure. Although federal law requires the provision of American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters for meetings of this sort, interpreters are sometimes not provided at all, or those hired lack adequate ASL proficiency. DHOH professionals undoubtedly prefer to attend seminars where the presenter uses ASL as the language of instruction. Unfortunately, seminars like this are a rare occurrence.

To address this need, ATI and Mike Deninger have revamped the 2-day intensive MEMI training for a DHOH audience. ASL will be the language of instruction. Like other ATI trainings, it will be offered in-person at ATI’s studio on Mesa and livestreamed simultaneously via the internet on April 21-22. Remote participants will access the program via the ATI website.
