The EMDR Therapy Basic Training (Parts 1 and 2) is designed for licensed mental health practitioners who treat adults and children in a clinical setting. EMDR is a comprehensive psychotherapy that accelerates the treatment of a wide range of client difficulties and self-esteem issues related to disturbing past events and present life conditions. EMDR therapy is practiced throughout the world. This interactional, standardized approach has been empirically validated in over 40 randomized controlled studies with trauma patients, and hundreds of published case reports evaluating effectiveness with a considerable range of presenting complaints, including PTSD, depression, anxiety, phobias, excessive grief, somatic conditions and addictions. EMDR therapy is guided by the Adaptive Information Processing model which addresses the unprocessed memories that appear to set the basis for a wide range of dysfunction. A number of neuro-physiological studies have documented the rapid post treatment EMDR effects. The training is based upon the textbook by EMDR originator Francine Shapiro, PhD Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Basic Principles, Protocols and Procedures Guilford Press, NY, 3rd Edition, 2018.

The EMDR Therapy Basic Training (Parts 1 and 2) is designed for licensed mental health practitioners who treat adults and children in a clinical setting. EMDR is a comprehensive psychotherapy that accelerates the treatment of a wide range of client difficulties and self-esteem issues related to disturbing past events and present life conditions. EMDR therapy is practiced throughout the world. This interactional, standardized approach has been empirically validated in over 40 randomized controlled studies with trauma patients, and hundreds of published case reports evaluating effectiveness with a considerable range of presenting complaints, including PTSD, depression, anxiety, phobias, excessive grief, somatic conditions and addictions. EMDR therapy is guided by the Adaptive Information Processing model which addresses the unprocessed memories that appear to set the basis for a wide range of dysfunction. A number of neuro-physiological studies have documented the rapid post treatment EMDR effects. The training is based upon the textbook by EMDR originator Francine Shapiro, PhD Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Basic Principles, Protocols and Procedures Guilford Press, NY, 3rd Edition, 2018.
