Weekend Two: Date to be determined


Every EMDR Basic Training and every trainer has a different flavor.  In all basic trainings, the focus is on teaching the 8 Phases and 3 Prongs of the EMDR Protocol.  In addition this training includes practical tools that can be used immediately to assist the new EMDR therapist with a variety of clients, from simple to complex. The tools will also help trainees manage the practical experience so that it is positive and supportive. The goal is to teach, model and practice effective containment and regulation skills. Basic Training is the best time to teach the clinician to fit how they are applying the Standard Protocol to the client's needs and capacities. The trainers will be modeling and trainees will be practicing the skills needed to stay within the Window of Tolerance while reprocessing. These skills will help a wider range of clients successfully process with EMDR.
