EMDR BASIC TRAIN​ING

EMDR PSYCH​OTHERAPY

EMDR Psychotherapy originated as a trauma therapy that is now supported my copious amounts of empirical research. As EMDR has continued to be studied, it has become clear how it is helpful for a variety of issues that one might experience. This includes anxiety, addictions, low self-esteem and  personality disorders. Becoming an EMDR therapist provides you with an entire new skillset and potential for improved client outcomes.

Name of Person

Our goal is for each participant to feel competent and confident in their clinical skills at the completion of this training with lots of real life experiences and support.The process of learning EMDR is more than just attending a workshop or a lecture. EMDR Basic Training involves learning the theory that informs EMDR psychotherapy while practicing this therapy in training, both as clinician and client. Due to the importance of utilizing this therapy in the most effective manner, attending a training that is approved by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) guarantees that the necessary objectives to make you successful at implementing EMDR with clients are met. 

 

Our training is an EMDRIA Approved Training and occurs over the course of five days intensive or two long weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). Our course is all-inclusive, meaning that you will experience continuity in your training as the same team that facilitates the lecture and practicum portion of your training will also provide the 10 hours of required group consultation. The consultation groups occur virtually and are  required to assist in the integration of the training material into practice with your clients.

​REQUIREMENTS & FEES

 

EMDR PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS

EMDRIA requires that participants practice EMDR Psychotherapy in between training weekends to assist in the proper integration and application of the training material. You will have help to determine what clients might be best to practice EMDR with during the required group consultation meetings. If you are a student or an intern, it is required that you provide documentation from your supervisor affirming their support of you practicing EMDR with clients during the course of this training. Additionally, EMDRIA requires that you practice EMDR as a client in training. This involves working on real material that you consider disturbing. Please consult with your healthcare team if you have any concerns about this. Please know that we offer a supportive environment and you have the ultimate control of what material you work on in the training.

 

CONSULTATION REQUIREMENTS
10 hours of group consultation are required to complete EMDR Basic Training . The training staff provides consultation in small group settings via teleconferencing following Weekend 1 and continuing in the weeks following Weekend 2. Each EMDR Basic Training has established times for the group consultations and will be provided to you based on which training dates you are registered.  You are responsible to attend all assigned group consultation times in order to successfully complete the training. In the event that you are unable to attend the assigned consultation times, you are responsible to obtain approved outside consultation at your own expense. LK Institute will not reimburse any fees as a result of your absence in the assigned consultation groups.

Testimonials

"I can't say enough good things about this training! Having previously done EMDR training during my internship and practicing it for over a year now I learned SO MUCH including things that I have been doing wrong. I'm grateful to have clarity on a lot of places I was getting stuck and really looking forward to the second weekend! Lauren is skilled at making a potentially very confusing process clear and understandable! I loved all of the examples because it helped me understand concepts better. The days were long, but they genuinely didn't feel like it!"
