Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful therapy for treating trauma-based problems. This revolutionary therapy has helped thousands recover from such traumas as war, accidents, assaults, disasters, and childhood abuse. EMDR is used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder and the psychological effects of smaller traumas that manifest as symptoms of depression, anxiety, phobias, low self-esteem, creativity blocks, and relationship difficulties. Not only does healing occur much more rapidly than in traditional therapy, but as a result of EMDR’s clearing of emotional and physical blockages, many people undergo spiritual transformation and have “beyond the ego” experiences using EMDR.
Parts 1 & 2: Beginning Through Advanced Level
Learn EMDR from the inside out, with extensive practice time, experiencing firsthand the power of this transformative therapy. Using lecture, small group practice, and demonstrations in a supportive environment, we will cover beginning through advanced level EMDR. Topics covered also include:
- The EMDR model and components of treatment
- EMDR’s eight phases of treatment
- How to evaluate clients to gauge the appropriateness of EMDR treatment
- How to prepare clients for EMDR trauma processing
- Protocols and procedures for using EMDR for a range of problems
- How to use EMDR as a form of transpersonal psychotherapy
- To meet the requirements for basic EMDR training, participants must complete Parts 1 and 2, receive 10 hours of consultation from EMDRIA-approved consultants and then complete Part 3. Part 3 may be attended 3 or more months after Parts 1 & 2 or an equivalent EMDRIA approved training.
