EMDR Instruction provides classes for basic EMDR training in parts 1 and 2. The courses are approved by EMDRIA and cover or exceed the minimum standards for basic training. The course will enable the clinician to integrate EMDR into their practice through lecture, video presentations, and practice sessions. In addition, local support will be provided, where available, by EMDRIA approved consultants some of whom are or will be trained by EMDR instruction's trainer, Bill white, LCSW. Mr. White created and operates EMDR Instruction. The student will be provided with a detailed manual to assist him/her during training and after as well. The manual is written in considerable detail to assist the new clinician in learning EMDR protocols in a step-by-step manner. The manual can be used as a reference between trainings and after training is completed. Lastly all students will be required to purchase the textbook, "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Basic Principles, Protocols, and Procedures, 2nd Edition. The textbook was written by Dr. Francine Shapiro, PhD. For part 1 the student should read chapters 1 through 8 before the training begins. For part 2 students should read chapters 9 through 11. This is a requirement for taking the course.
Consultation will be provided by local clinicians when possible to help the clinician to integrate EMDR into their practice. Furthermore, this will help the new EMDR clinician to become part of the local and consequently, larger EMDR community.
Part 1 teaches the basic foundation of EMDR through learning the 8 phases of EMDR protocol. This is taught at a pace in which the student can assimilate the information and thus become prepared to use EMDR in their practice immediately after their training is complete. Furthermore, the student will learn various containment skills to assist with EMDR processing.
Part 2 is usually scheduled 6 to 8 weeks after part 1 so the student can have time to become acclimated to EMDR therapy. Part 2 will teach the student advanced methods of history taking and working with more complex cases.
Fees for training are listed on the website and includes reduced fees for clinicians working at nonprofit agencies. If there is a need for lower fees that listed then the potential student should contact Mr. White to discuss this matter. There is also the option to pay in installments to make the cost of training easier.
