Become an EMDR Therapist
This is for the Complete EMDR Therapist Training, which consists of two 3-day weekends and 10 hours of online group consultation. It is an EMDRIA approved program and upon completion you are a fully trained EMDR therapist and this is the pathway to becoming certified in EMDR.
This training is for counseling interns and licensed mental health professionals. Eligibility requirements for the training are listed here.
In addition to the two weekends, which are attended in person, each trainee must attend five 2-hour group consultations which are done by video conferencing between and after the training weekends.
Upon completion, this training provides 40 continuing education hours for Texas LPC, MFT, and LCSW – partial credit is not given.
About the Training
This training is designed to give you the depth of understanding, practical experience and confidence you will need to use EMDR effectively with your clients. Even after the first weekend, you will be encouraged to use it with appropriate clients and begin preparing the others who aren’t ready to do in-depth processing,
EMDR gets at the source of maladaptive behaviors by providing sub-cortical resolution to free-up stuck or frozen intrusive thoughts, emotions, and body sensations. This training is focused on teaching you the basics of EMDR and the most effective way to incorporate it into your practice.
All trainees will be asked to participate in practicum exercises as part of the training. You will be encouraged to work on personal issues that are appropriate for the training environment.
There will be demonstrations with individual attendees throughout the 6 days, and you’re encouraged to consider being a volunteer. In addition, all participants will be paired to practice the newly learned material. This will be done in a safe, supportive environment in which confidentially will be maintained.
