This is the complete EMDR Therapy Basic Training (Parts 1 & 2) approved by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) and includes an additional 10 hours of consultation. Participants will learn the EMDR therapy approach, the basic eight-phase EMDR protocol, the Adaptive Information Processing Model, and how to incorporate EMDR therapy into your practice. This course will consist of didactic presentations, live demonstrations, supervised practicum, and case consultations. Participants must attend the full training and participate in 10 hours of consultation to receive a certificate of completion in EMDR Basic Training. Five 2-hour consultation groups will be provided by the trainer, included in the cost of the training. If other dates or times are needed to make up for the consultation hours, attendees can either schedule separate consultation with the trainer (or an EMDRIA approved Consultant or Consultant-in-Training with prior approval of the trainer, typically at the attendees cost). Approval of partial programs will not be granted.
Cost. The cost of the training is $1,400 and includes both weekends (Part 1 and Part 2) and 10 hours of required consultation. (Cost is $1,100 for students and clinicians working full-time ine a non-profit agency.)
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).

Note: 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.

Consultation Sessions via Teleconference or Videoconference.

Consultation provides an opportunity for the integration of the theory of EMDR along with the development of EMDR therapy skills. During consultation, trainees receive individualized feedback and instruction in the areas of case conceptualization, client readiness, target selection, treatment planning, specific application of skills, and the integration of EMDR therapy into clinical practice. Consultation is about real cases and not experiences that occur in practicum.
