About the event

45 CE Hours + 10 Consultation Hours = 55 Training Hours

This training course consists of six full days of training, including didactic and practicum components plus 10 hours of group consultations with EMDRIA-approved consultants and access to an extensive resource library, including videos of advanced training in various topics.

This training provides supplemental information for children and adolescents in both parts. It will cover how to use EMDR therapy with developmentally appropriate adaptations for children and adolescents while also including information on how to use it with adults. You will leave this training equipped with the tools you need to practice EMDR with both children and adults.

Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion of Basic Training in EMDR Therapy, which will allow for the provision of EMDR Therapy with a wide range of clients. Participants will also be eligible to attend further training in EMDR Therapy at the advanced level, participate in the EMDRIA Regional Meetings, and be eligible to pursue certification in EMDR Therapy.
