Keynote Speakers

Dr. Gary Quinn

Gary Quinn, MD, is a psychiatrist and Director of The EMDR Institute of Israel. He specializes in Crisis Intervention, the treatment of Anxiety and Depressive Disorders, and the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder following military trauma, terrorist attacks and motor vehicle accidents. He has conducted numerous trainings in Israel and runs supervision groups. He is the Trainer of Trainers in Asia for the EMDR Institute Inc. and is a Senior Trainer in Asia and the United States. He participated as a trainer for Trauma Recovery/HAP in Turkey following the earthquake of 1999, in Thailand, after the tsunami in 2004, as well in Romania and Cambodia. He has volunteered in medical hospitals and bomb shelters after terrorist attacks. He developed the Emergency Response Protocol (ERP) for EMDR therapists to treat victims of trauma within hours of the incident. He has presented this work at conferences in Europe, Asia, America, and Africa. He was invited to Singapore as a PTSD expert to address the Psychiatric, Psychological and Medical staff as well as policy makers from the Department of Mental Health and was the keynote speaker at the Singapore International Conference on treatment of Acute Stress Disorder.

Dr. Quinn developed Self-Care Procedure for Coronavirus (SCP-C) – a self-healing stabilization procedure for both individuals and groups suffering from anxiety, panic, or helplessness related to coronavirus. It has been published in the book EMDR Resources in the Era of COVID-19, edited by Marilyn Luber.

He developed ISP® – Immediate Stabilization Procedure- to replace ERP. It is now available for use by both by EMDR therapists, other clinicians and first responders. It has been used successfully to treat victims of war in the Ukraine.

Dr. Philip Manfield

Dr. Philip Manfield

Philip Manfield, Ph.D. has practiced psychotherapy in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1975. He has authored or edited four books about psychotherapy and EMDR and taught on six continents.

Most recently, Dr. Manfield has developed the flash technique, a process that permits the reduction of disturbance of overwhelmingly disturbing memories with virtually no pain. He has been the lead author on two papers concerning the flash technique that have appeared in the Journal of EMDR Practice and Research (2017, 2021), the most recent of which is entitled “Flash Technique in a Scalable Low-Intensity Group Intervention for COVID-19 Related Stress in Healthcare Providers,” and continues to conduct research supporting the efficacy and safety of the flash technique. With ten published papers supporting the efficacy and safety of the flash technique, it is now an evidence-based intervention.

Together with his colleague, Lewis Engel, PhD, Dr. Manfield has presented introductions to the flash technique at five national and international conferences, conducted webinars and workshops in eleven countries in addition to the United States, and trained over 12,000 clinicians.
