Described as an “indispensable modality of treatment” by Bessel van der Kolk, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) offers your clients a way to safely process traumatic experiences.
This EMDR training course is renowned for its flexibility and for providing clinical pearls of wisdom that will allow you to integrate EMDR effectively into your practice immediately. With an emphasis on attunement, attachment and clinical judgement, this EMDRIA-approved 5-day intensive will provide the essentials for implementing EMDR, including an overview on how to customize treatments for children, recent events, couples, grief, pain, phobias, addictions and dissociation.
Drawing a sharp distinction from research-oriented approaches to EMDR, this training focuses on the interpersonal aspects of EMDR work. You will undergo a multimedia learning experience designed to optimize skill acquisition. Through lecture, videos, and practice opportunities, you will first listen, then observe and then implement new concepts and skills.
This EMDR training updates the original procedures developed by Francine Shapiro in 1995 by expanding treatment planning, preparation and processing interventions. Supplemented with over 43 videos, downloadable training materials and free access to a community-wide listserv, it also provides support before, during and after the course, so that you will be confident every step of the way as you implement EMDR in your clinical practice.
TRAINING MATERIALS INCLUDED:
- Along with the 40-hour lecture/practicum portion of the training provided during this EMDR training week, you will also receive 10 hours of consultation after the training with approved consultants via small-group phone/online video conferencing, to help you integrate and fine-tune your understanding and skills.
- Advanced instructional materials including a pdf of the manual and links to videos to help prepare you for the workshop will be sent to you prior to the beginning of the training.
Interested in taking this EMDR training but do not yet meet the requirements?
A limited number of spaces are available for Student EMDR Trainees. This is ideal for students who are currently enrolled in a Master’s level program with at least 2 years’ focus on a mental health discipline and have completed all course work in the program and will be enrolled in the practicum portion of your training by the time the EMDR training begins. The student fee will be CAD$2,100 before the EarlyBird deadline and $2,200 after. The student rate includes advance training materials, 40 hours of lecture/practicum AND 10 hours of consultation.
As a student you will also need to have a signed MOU between yourself and a designated supervisor who will agree to oversee your EMDR practice during the duration of the training. See a sample MOU here. Note: the designated supervisor does not need to be trained in EMDR
