EMDR Basic Training
This is the complete EMDR Basic Training approved by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA), formerly known as Level I and Level II, including an additional 10 hours on consultation. Participants will learn the EMDR psychotherapy approach, the basic eight-phase EMDR protocol, the Adaptive Information Processing Model, and how to incorporate EMDR into your practice. This course will consist of didactic presentations, live demonstrations, supervised practicum, and case consultations. Participants must attend the full training and attend five 2-hour consultation groups 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 any EMDRIA approved Consultant with prior approval of the trainer) at the attendees cost. Approval of partial programs will not be granted.
