Part 1 of this training will be December 8-10, 2017


EMDR Basic Training with Alice Stricklin and the Personal Transformation Institute, meets and exceeds the EMDRIA requirements. The complete training includes 10 hours of consultation. Other trainings offer only 1 part at a time and do not include the cost of consultation in the total training package.

The 2 three day training periods cover the Adaptive Information Processing Model, the 8 Phase EMDR Therapy treatment approach, including adaptations for working with Children, Recent Trauma, Dissociation, Phobias and other specialties depending on the needs of the participants.

Due to the intensity of trauma training, resources are taught and experienced throughout the training process as a way to keep participants engaged and emotionally regulated. These resources include somatic and attachment informed methods that are especially helpful in working with traumatized clients. By making the training safe, complex ideas simple and the atmosphere as fun as possible, the learning experience is optimized.

Our mission is to offer the most cutting edge, effective EMDR trainings with a foundation of attachment and somatic psychology theories. The trainings will not only teach the concepts, but also demonstrate the foundational principles of effective therapy:

  • Nonviolence
  • Respect
  • Compassion
  • Healthy boundaries
  • Self awareness

By applying the concepts to self before clients, the therapist has an opportunity to learn in a full- bodied, experiential way that invites deeper understanding and insight. This makes this training powerful and transformative as well as daunting for those who have unresolved past experiences. This experiential aspect of the training is essential to effectively learning the AIP model as well as required by EMDRIA, our professional organization.

Support before, during and after the training is provided by giving the clinician access to training videos on trauma, the actual training and demonstrations of EMDR sessions. In addition to this comprehensive support through the website, an email group is available for discussion and questions

Another important aspect of our training model is the seamless opportunity for continuing toward EMDRIA certification. Those who wish to continue a deeper understanding of EMDR with an attachment and somatic focus can move forward with our Advanced Certification Package.

We also offer a full progression of continued development to becoming an EMDRIA Approved Consultant/ PTI training assistant and potentially a PTI trainer.

Part 2: January 4-6, 2018
