The EMDR Training (Weekend 1 and 2) is designed for licensed mental health practitioners who treat adults and children in a clinical setting. The training meets EMDRIA requirements and includes lectures, live demonstrations, videotaped demonstrations, and supervised practice.
EMDR is a comprehensive psychotherapy that accelerates the treatment of a wide range of pathologies and self-esteem issues related to disturbing events and present life conditions. This interactional, standardized approach has been empirically tested in over 20 randomized controlled studies with trauma patients, and hundreds of published case report evaluating a considerable range of presenting complaints, including depression, anxiety, phobias, excessive grief, somatic conditions, and addictions. EMDR is guided by the Adaptive Information Processing model which addresses the unprocessed memories that appear to set the basis for a wide range of dysfunction. A number of neurophysiological studies have documented the rapid post-treatment EMDR effects.
