This 2-day course is designed as an EMDR therapy skills refresher course for newly trained as well as experienced clinicians. The workshop is specially intended for clinicians trained in EMDR therapy who have not had the ability to practice EMDR to the comfort level they would like to have when working with clients.

Often clinicians leave EMDR Therapy Basic Training workshops feeling confident and ready to treat clients. Due to a variety of reasons, clinicians may not have the opportunity to practice EMDR therapy at their work settings and lack confidence in their EMDR skills. This workshop is also perfect for the newly trained or experienced EMDR clinician who would like a refresher course to increase technical competence.

Participants will learn the EMDR therapy approach, review the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) Model, basic 8 Phase EMDR therapy protocol, 3-Prong Approach, and how to incorporate EMDR therapy into your practice. This workshop consists of didactic presentations, live demonstrations, supervised practicum, and case consultations to strengthen EMDR therapy skills and facilitate a greater treatment outcome.

Research consistently demonstrates that fidelity to the 8 Phase EMDR treatment model increases the efficacy of EMDR therapy for clients (Maxfiield, 2003; Perkins & Rouanzoin, 2002; Greenwald, 1996; Wilson, 1995).
