What is an EMDR Therapy Basic Training?  Prior to 2007, clinicians were identified as Level I EMDR therapists after completing the first weekend of training and identified as Level II EMDR therapists after completion of the second weekend of training.  The requirements changed in 2007 and now a clinician cannot be identified as an EMDR therapist until completion of both weekends of training as well as 10 hours of consultation with an Approved Consultant (and received the certificate of completion from the trainer).  For information about the EMDRIA approved Basic Training curriculum, click hereNote:  Beginning January 1, 2017 participants who begin the EMDR Therapy Basic Training must complete the entire training within 24 months from their initial start date unless there are extraordinary circumstances.
