    About the Trainers . . . . 

    Jill Archer, MS, NCC, LIMHP is an experienced EMDR clinician, consultant, and trainer, with EMDRIA approved EMDR Training as well as "Basics of EMDR with Children and Adolescents". She has been the EMDRIA Peer Study Group Coordinator in Omaha since 2012 and the EMDR Nebraska Regional Network Coordinator since 2014.  She completed EMDR training in 2004 and has used it with children, adolescents and adults.  Jill draws on attachment theory, ego state therapy, play therapy, filial therapy and other approaches to support a rich therapeutic process.  Jill was Coordinator of the University of Nebraska at Omaha Community Counseling Clinic from 2000-2003 and has worked in private practice since 2003.

    Gary Scarborough, MEd, LPC, LIMHP has over 20 years as a Therapist and has been using EMDR since 2002. He has put EMDR into use extensively in a play therapy environment with ‘littles’, children 12 and under primarily, as well as with adolescents, adults and clients diagnosed with Serious Mental Illness. Gary has worked in a wide variety of environments: private practice, community mental health agency, human service settings, court referred clients, school based, and day treatment, the majority in rural environments. He has extensive experience with EMDR Training. As well, in conjunction with Jill, developed the curriculum and taught “Basics of EMDR with Children and Adolescents”. Gary also has taught the Integrative Group Treatment Protocol (IGTP or Butterfly Hug Protocol) and the Protocol for Recent Critical Incidents (PRECI).            

    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 in 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).  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.
    Eligibility Requirements for Attendees.  This training is appropriate for licensed mental health professionals as well as graduate students and interns.  (Acceptance of graduate students will be determined by the presenter of this Basic Training, Gary Scarborough, after verification of eligibility has been received.)  To obtain specific information about eligibility, click here.

    Consultation Sessions via Teleconference or Videoconference.   The cost of registration includes five 2-hour consultation sessions with the trainers, Gary Scarborough and Jill Archer, and will occur after the first and second weekends of training.  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. 

    This meeting is held in facilities which are in compliance with the American with Disabilities Act.  Please contact Gary Scarborough at if special accommodations are required.
