EMDR Therapy Basic Training

EMDR Institute Regional Training
Since 1995 I have gratefully served as a Facilitator and Logician for the EMDR Institute, which gave me the opportunity to be involved in training mental health professionals locally and around the world. It has been a wonderful learning experience helping hone my own EMDR therapy knowledge and skills. As well it has been a very satisfying experience to shepherd newly trained therapist right from the beginning. In 2017, I achieved one of my own professional goals and became a Regional Trainer for the EMDR Institute.  To further my professional goals,  I became an EMDR Institute Senior Trainer in 2018.

My Regional EMDR therapy Basic Training provides training to a small groups of clinicians and is designed for those interested in learning to integrate EMDR therapy successfully into their clinical practice by developing and applying their skills over an extended period of time. It offers a small, safe, comfortable and personalized training environment consisting of lecture and videotaped demonstrations, case studies, supervised practice and ongoing case consultation.

This Institute Basic Training curriculum is inspired and approved by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D., the originator of EMDR therapy. Unlike other EMDR therapy training opportunities available, the Institute’s training curriculum is considered the ‘Gold Standard’ that has been time-tested for years and provides the most updated information about EMDR therapy. This two-part, experiential training is approved by EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) and includes 20 hours of lecture, 20 hours of supervised practice and 10 hours of consultation. EMDRIA sets the standards for EMDR training, workshops and professional credentialing levels.
