Course Information

The Complete EMDR Therapy Course

This course will teach clinicians interventions for every step of the way in treatment from “hello” to “congratulations! You’ve completed therapy?” For example, they will learn current information and research on trauma and neurobiology so they have a base for their practice and information to share with client, they will learn how to take a trauma / loss list during their history taking phase, they will learn several relaxation and resource tools for the preparation phase and they will learn the EMDR protocol for the therapy phases. They will learn EMDRs mechanisms of effect (REM sleep, working memory, etc.), modality (steps in the procedure) and model (AIP). They will learn EMDR specific tasks such as how to help a client get unstuck in their work (cognitive interweaves), how to do a float back to check for other past experiences that need work, how to work with a cluster of experiences (things that happens over and over again) and how to do a future template to prepare clients for future situations (dating, family gatherings, job interviews, etc.). They will learn EMDR protocol variations for special populations such as children, addictions and dissociation. They will also receive case consultation on their cases via their client videos, filling out and presenting case consultation forms and general discussion.

This program is for 52CE
