Basic EMDR Training – Boutique Style

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. 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. The Boutique style allows you to ask focused questions and receive supportive immediate guidance and feedback.

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.

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!
