EMDR therapy 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 20 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 therapy effects.

**** The training fee does not include case consultation, but non-profit employees and students can get low cost consultation from our consultants. Four hours of consultation will be required after Part One to enroll in the Part Two of the Basic Training. An additional 6 hours after Part Two will be required to receive the EMDR Basic Training Certificate of Completion.  (EMDRIA Approved Consultants or Consultants-in-training will be provided to participants. Consultation will be provided either face to face or by video conferencing)

Learning objectives for the course:

  1. Learn the underlying adaptive information processing theory of EMDR therapy and other theoretical brain functioning and research issues;
  2. Learn to assess the appropriateness of using EMDR therapy with your patients;
  3. Learn to integrate EMDR therapy in to a comprehensive treatment plan; and
