More Details About EMDR Basic Training Parts I and II

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy is a multifaceted and empirically validated treatment approach for a range of client presenting issues (particularly trauma-related). It incorporates somatic, emotional, cognitive, and narrative elements, and it facilitates accelerated change of clients’ adverse experiences.

EMDR Basic Training includes Part I and Part II, as well as 10 hours of consultation on EMDR Therapy, and reading an EMDR Therapy book by Francine Shapiro. This EMDR Basic Training is EMDRIA-Approved.

Clinicians are expected to begin using EMDR therapy with clients after completion of Part I and using group consultation to review these cases. The entire training must be completed within a 12-month period. Trainings include lecture, discussion, experiential exercises, demonstrations, and small group practice – all online! EMDR Basic Training is available to licensed mental health professionals or people working toward licensure and under the supervision of a licensed professional.
