Seva House offers the following workshops and training:

EMDR in a Fishbowl:

Seva House is excited to present: EMDR in a Fishbowl, a 2-hour workshop comprising of a live demonstration of Attachment Informed EMDR, Intergenerational EMDR and dream work; integrating Ego States and Polyvagal Theory between a Therapist and volunteer. This workshop will be available online (via Zoom Platform) in the comfort of your own home with the opportunity for feedback and Q&A with facilitators and peers to follow. This exciting style of workshop was presented in the UK by Mark Brayne (who leads international workshops in AI EMDR – towards the end of 2021 which both Michele and Amy were lucky enough to have attended.

As Michele and Amy found them so valuable in their own work as EMDR therapists, they approached Mark to gain his support providing a similar style of workshop in Australia. Mark provided his wonderful support for this request and even though the workshops are similar to what Mark is running in the UK, they are different with Michele and Amy’s own way of working.

Workshops will be provided monthly – with the first commencing on Monday 11th of July from 5pm to 7pm AEST (future dates available on registration form) with a volunteer to respectfully, be part of the process (options to be a volunteer are made available on the registration form). The cost for each workshop is $110 (includes GST) and you are welcome to register for more than one workshop but you will only be invoiced prior to that workshop, but your place will be secure. Michele and Amy will alternate each workshop as the Therapist and online support – who will be answering/noting down any questions in the chat that may come up during the live session.

Buried in Treasures - A Group Work Program for People with Hoarding Behaviour/Clutter

Seva House is excited to present BAROOGA (meaning ‘my home’), an introduction/understanding to Hoarding Disorder for service providers:








This interactive training is based on Dr Randy Frost, Dr David Tolin and Dr Gail Steketee’s evidence-based ‘Buried In Treasures’ treatment group and has been adapted to this program BAROOGA which we are excited to offer to Organisations who work with clients who display symptoms consistent with Hoarding Disorder. The aims of this program is to give workers the skills and understanding to help clients find their way out of the clutter and chaos in their own home and to reduce the acquiring of items. Michele is one of a few trained facilitators of Buried in Treasures in the Hunter and has presented a number of Buried in Treasures groups for clients with Amy co-facilitating.

In attending ‘BAROOGA’, participants gain an introduction to ‘what is hoarding?’ and a deeper understanding of the multi-level aspects of hoarding and strategies to not just address individual thoughts, feelings and behaviour but also the physical manifestation of the hoard.

Participants are provided with hard copies of resources and a USB of worksheets for use with clients.
