BASIC TRAINING OVERVIEW
Course provides 40 CE Credits and 10 Hours of Consultation
The EMDR Therapy Basic Training is designed for mental health practitioners who treat clients of all ages. This training is developmentally grounded training to treat clients from infants to adults with a variety of symptom presentations. EMDR therapy is a comprehensive psychotherapy that accelerates the treatment of a wide range of symptoms and clinical issues including those related to disturbing events and present life conditions.
This interactional, standardized therapy has been empirically tested in over 20 randomized controlled studies with trauma patients, and hundreds of published case reports evaluating a considerable range of presenting complaints, including acute stress, PTSD, depression, anxiety, phobias, excessive grief, somatic conditions, and addictions. EMDR therapy is guided by the Adaptive Information Processing theory, which addresses the unprocessed memories that appear to set the basis for a wide range of clinical symptomatology. A number of neurophysiological studies have documented the rapid post treatment EMDR therapy effects.
This Basic Training is based on “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): Basic Principles, Protocols, and Procedures, 3rd Edition,” Shapiro (2017) and the EMDRIA Standards and Training definition of EMDR Psychotherapy. Trainees are required to read the text along with EMDRIA’s definition. Additional readings are recommended as noted below.
Basic Training in EMDR therapy includes 20 hours of instruction, 20 hours of practicum facilitated by an EMDR Facilitator or EMDRIA Approved Consultant, 10 hours of consultation with an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, experiential practice with peers.
Instruction includes 20 hours of lectures and a manual is provided. Trainees are asked to take notes while the content of the lectures is summarized in powerpoints. Questions that arise can be discussed during lectures with trainers, practicum with facilitators, and during consultation with EMDRIA Approved Consultants approved by Tapia Counseling & Psychological Services, LLC to provide consultation for basic training in EMDR Therapy.
Practical Experience in groups with Facilitators: This practical experience also referred to as “Practicum” includes 20 hours in which the trainee has the opportunity to demonstrate and practice of EMDR therapy under the guidance of an EMDR facilitator and/or trainer in breakout rooms with 1-2 other participants. It is imperative that trainees receive direct observation and feedback from the Trainer and/or Facilitator. Guidance will be provided in breakout rooms in which the Trainer/Facilitator will observe and provide direct feedback to the trainees. To achieve the goals of the practicum, practice may be done in dyads or triads. Trainees practice initially with scripted protocols to learn the flow of the 8 phases of EMDR therapy, and later with real life experiences. Ample practice is included for each phase of the protocol outlined in the instructional section.
Consultation (10 Hours): Consultation provides an opportunity for the integration of the theory of EMDR along with the development of EMDR therapy skills. During consultation trainees receive individualized feedback and instruction in the areas of case conceptualization, client readiness, target selection, treatment planning, specific application of skills, and the integration of EMDR into clinical practice. Consultation is about real cases and not experiences that occur in practicum. Participants are given case consultation forms to assist in organizing information to present. In addition, participants are given forms to assist with learning and adherence to the protocol.
