About the training
The Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy Basic Training (Parts 1 and 2) is designed for licensed mental health practitioners who treat adults and children in a clinical setting. EMDR is a comprehensive psychotherapy that accelerates the treatment of a wide range of pathologies and self-esteem issues related to disturbing events and present life conditions. This interactional, standardized approach has been empirically tested in over 30 randomized controlled studies with trauma patients, and hundreds of published case reports evaluating a considerable range of presenting complaints, including depression, anxiety, phobias, excessive grief, somatic conditions and addictions. EMDR therapy is guided by the Adaptive Information Processing model which addresses the unprocessed memories that appear to set the basis for a wide range of dysfunction. A number of neurophysiological studies have documented the rapid post treatment EMDR effects. Participants will be required to read the textbook by Francine Shapiro, PhD, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Basic Principles, Protocols and Procedures (Guilford Press, NY, 3rd Edition, 2017).
Attendance is limited to mental health professionals with a master’s degree or higher (and at the minimum a provisional license in the behavioral/mental health field). Graduate Students on a track to a Mental Health Licensure who are in their practicum may also apply.
