Virtual EMDR Basic Training Course

EMDR Training (Parts I and II)

Intended for mental health therapists, such as psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, professional counselors and LMFTs.

Online Course Description

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' dysfunctional patterns.

 

EMDR Training includes Part I (3-days) and Part II (4-days), as well as 10 hours of consultation on EMDR Therapy, and reading an EMDR Therapy book by Francine Shapiro. This EMDR 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 9-month period. Trainings include lecture, discussion, experiential exercises, demonstrations, and small group practice - all online! EMDR Training is available to licensed mental health professionals or people working toward licensure and under the supervision of a licensed professional.

EMDR TRAINING PART 1

(3-DAYS)

Part I of the EMDR Training covers the development of EMDR Therapy, the Adaptive Information Processing Model, the 8-Phase EMDR therapy approach, and Resource Development and Installation (RDI). Specific learning objectives include:

1. Describe the eight phases of EMDR Therapy
2. Identify three elements of the Adaptive Information Processing Model
3. Utilize the criteria for client screening for EMDR treatment
4. Develop a treatment plan to prioritize targets for EMDR processing
5. Describe the protocol for closing down incomplete sessions

After Part I of the EMDR Training, clinicians will begin using EMDR Therapy with clients and participate in consultation with Elizabeth Legg, PhD, LPC, NCC or another EMDRIA-Approved Consultant or Consultant-in-Training approved by Elizabeth Legg. Participants are responsible for arranging and scheduling consultation. Group consultation options will be provided following the Part I Training. Four hours (of the total 10 hours required) must be completed between Parts I and II.

EMDR TRAINING PART 2

(4-DAYS)

Part II of the EMDR Training follows about 6-10 weeks later and addresses EMDR Therapy with Complex PTSD, Anxiety Disorders, Addictions, Chronic Pain/Illness, Couples, and Children/Adolescents. Specific learning objectives include:

1. Clarify my use of the eight phase EMDR Therapy approach
2. Implement three strategies to assist with blocked processing
3. Describe two strategies to use with complex PTSD clients
4. Provide two strategies to use with dissociative clients
5. Apply EMDR therapy to present day symptoms

After Part II of the EMDR Training, clinicians complete the remaining hours of the 10 required hours of consultation with Elizabeth Legg, PhD, LPC, NCC or another EMDRIA-Approved Consultant or Consultant-in-Training approved by Elizabeth Legg. The entire process of training from beginning Part I to finishing the 10 required hours of consultation must be completed within a 9-month period to qualify for the Certificate of Completion.

EMDR Training (Parts I and II) includes lecture, discussion, experiential exercises, live demonstrations, and small group practice (as both therapist and client). The training has a maximum of 12 participants. Each dyad/triad will meet online in breakout rooms to practice the trauma protocol. They will be provided with an electronic copy of a comprehensive manual for Part I and Part II. 

The entire EMDR Training (Parts I and II) includes 20 hours of instruction, 20 hours of practicum, and 10 hours of consultation, at which point a certificate of completion (40 continuing education contact hours) is given to participants. EMDR Training (Parts I and II) prepares clinicians to use EMDR Therapy with clients. However, this training does not result in EMDR Certification. This is a first step toward EMDR Certification (see www.emdria.org for information about EMDR Certification).
