Transforming Trauma with EMDR Comprehensive Training (Part 1 & 2)

This course is limited to mental-health professionals who are licensed to provide treatment, and mental-health interns who are currently being supervised by an EMDR-trained supervisor. Through lecture, hands-on practice, and demonstrations, participants will be shown:

  • Protocols and procedures for using EMDR with a wide range of diagnostic categories
  • Client selection criteria and cautions necessary for safe use of EMDR
  • Techniques for working with blocked processing and abreactions (catharsis)
  • The use of imaginal and cognitive interweaves
  • How to use EMDR with adults traumatized as children
  • Methods for developing inner resources used for interweaves, ego strengthening, and client closure

This course has been approved by the EMDR International Association. In accordance with the standards for basic EMDR training, participants must complete this course, receive ten hours of consultation from recommended EMDRIA-approved consultants, and then take Laurel Parnell’s Advanced Clinical Workshop and Refresher Course in order to complete the requirements for basic EMDR training.

Participants will be required to submit licensure documentation before attending and must bring copies of their professional licenses or certification to the training. Interns must submit a letter from their supervisors stating that they will supervise the interns.
