Certified Multichannel Eye Movement Integration for Life Coaches (CMEMI-C)

Course Description

Continuing Education Hours: 12

Designed specifically for life coaches, this certification course teaches the Multichannel Eye Movement Integration (MEMI) technique in the context of as salutogenic approach to wellness. Because MEMI’s Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) theory and principles are very compatible with trauma resiliency models, the course will review NLP’s history and major models (e.g., submodalities and representational systems) and compare them to salutogenic structure and stage constructs. Participants will also receive practical instruction and practice in applying MEMI’s: 1.) structure of experience theory; 2.) presuppositions supporting the technique; 3.) protocol and procedures; 4.) use of reframing, metaphors and embedded commands; 5.) basic eye movements and eye movement sets: and 6.) I-Scale and SUD Scale. Videos of MEMI’s use with a volunteer, live demonstrations of the technique and group practice will also be included.

Mike Deninger, PhD, LPC, CCTP, NBCCH, CTNLP & MEMI

Mike Deninger hails from Western New York where he was raised in a large working-class family. He holds a BA in English, MS in Education of the Deaf, PhD in Special Education Administration and MA in Mental Health Counseling (in that order). As an administrator in deaf education, Mike rose through the administrative ranks at Gallaudet University until he was appointed Dean of Pre-College Programs. This was arguably the top position in the education of elementary and secondary deaf children in the nation. But all was not right with him. In a 2011 memoir, Mike shared the reasons behind his transition from a top position educating deaf children to his current role of therapist, author and master trainer in mental health. 

During this transformation, Mike overcame an alcohol addiction, confronted PTSD stemming from childhood sexual abuse and came out as a gay man. He subsequently established a private practice specializing in trauma and earned trainer certifications in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Eye Movement Integration. As a result of his personal and professional experiences, Mike is keenly aware of the renewal that’s possible when one frees the mind, relaxes the will and allows the body’s neurological systems to heal traumatic wounds. He is a sought after public speaker and trainer, having made hundreds of presentations at national and international conferences. In 2021, his treatment innovations resulted in the publication of Multichannel Eye Movement Integration: The Brain Science Path to Easy and Effective PTSD Treatment. Mike now provides trainings, consultations and mentoring in this simple but effective PTSD approach through Trauma Counseling & Training of Tucson and Arizona Trauma Institute.
