BASIC EMDR Training Taught Online via Virtual Platform
As more and more of your clients are presenting with trauma, you want to do everything you can to provide effective trauma treatment. EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an integrative therapy that helps people heal from traumatic events and distressing life experiences. Let us help you to develop your skills in EMDR therapy. We hope you will take our Basic EMDR Training.
This course is taught in two weekends. In between the two weekends, you will receive consultation and support from us, as you apply EMDR to your clients. Given that face-to-face sessions with clients may be restricted, the use of telehealth to conduct EMDR Therapy will also be introduced. Because you will have had practical field experience, when we join together for weekend 2, you will be more comfortable and confident with EMDR interventions.
Because this course is offered on a virtual platform, all class sessions and consultation sessions will be conducted via Zoom. You can anticipate the same level of care as if we were in-person with you; we will engage with you and provide the support you need.
EMDR Basic Training includes two 20-hour weekends, and an additional 10 hours of consultation. The price for consultation is included in your cost.
In our EMDR Basic Training, you will learn:
- The nature of trauma
- The Adaptive Information Processing Model which informs trauma treatment
- How EMDR was developed
- The structured EMDR Protocols that you will implement in preparing for and processing trauma
- How EMDR helps clients to process disturbing events from the Past, Present..and the Future
You will practice EMDR on each other in a safe, caring, well-supervised environment. Come prepared to experience the power of EMDR!
Upon completion of this EMDR Basic Training, you will :
- Be knowledgeable in Basic EMDR Protocols
- Have participated in hands-on practicum sessions
- Have completed supervised consultations
- Receive a Certificate of Completion recognized by the governing board from EMDR (EMDRIA)
- Have a plan for how to bring EMDR Therapy to your clients
In this training, you will be lead by EMDRIA Approved Consultants Kathleen Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Weinhold. Kathleen and Liz are both LPC’s and have been practicing clinicians for over two decades. They have been working together as a team since 2012. Over the years we have been developing, fine-tuning and teaching EMDR to others. We are excited about having the opportunity to work with you!
