EMDRIA Approved Consultants in Nebraska
EMDRIA Approved Consultants must meet all criteria to be Certified in EMDR therapy. In addition, they must have three years of experience with EMDR therapy after completing an EMDRIA Approved Basic Training, have conducted at least 300 hundred clinical sessions in which EMDR therapy was utilized with at least 75 clients, and have received 20 hours of consultation-of-consultation from an EMDRIA Approved Consultant. They must complete 12 hours of EMDRIA continuing education in EMDR therapy every two years. (NOTE: Those applying for Approved Consultant status must already have completed the application process for and been approved as an EMDRIA Certified EMDR therapist.

EMDRIA Approved Consultant-in-Training (CIT)
A CIT is an EMDRIA Certified EMDR therapist who is pursuing status as an Approved Consultant, but has not yet met the full requirements. The CIT can provide consultation to EMDR therapists whether or not they are pursuing Certification. (For EMDR therapists pursuing Certification, 15 of the required 20 hours of consultation can be provided by the CIT.) The CIT receives consultation of consultation from an EMDRIA Approved Consultant (AC). This is a collaborative relationship between the CIT and AC in which the CIT explains and discusses with an AC the consultation that the CIT is providing to partially or fully trained EMDR therapists and provides suggestions for improvement. For more information, click here. There is currently no published list of EMDRIA Approved CITs. To verify if an EMDR therapist is an EMDRIA Approved CIT, contact the EMDRIA Education & Training Coordinator, Sarah Tolino, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (866) 451-5200.
Consultation is not supervision. Supervision implies that the “supervisor” has primary responsibility for the client’s outcome in treatment. In many states, the supervisee can only practice under the license of the “supervisor.” The supervisor carries a legal, ethical, and clinical responsibility/liability for the supervisee.
Consultation is a collaborative relationship between two mental health professionals. The consultant values the integrity and independence of the individual who is consulting with them. The consultee maintains primary responsibility for the decisions involving treatment for his or her client. Therefore, the consultant only advises regarding the utilization of EMDR therapy and never makes demands of the consultee beyond the consultant’s domain.
Individual and group consultation can be provided face-to-face or via teleconference.
