EMDR Therapy Training
EMDR therapy training equips mental health professionals with the knowledge and abilities to implement it into their practices. It is a psychotherapy that helps clients address trauma-related effects. Many clients and therapists find EMDR therapy beneficial in helping them overcome obstacles and heal from their wounds.
In EMDR, clients “free associate” with a troubling past event in a therapeutic setting. This helps them access memories and activate adaptive resolution. Once this has been accomplished, clients are encouraged to experience it through rapid eye movements (or other bilateral stimulation).
Processing trauma may take multiple sessions as clients work through it. Once complete, clients are able to integrate their new insights and perspectives into daily living situations.
When selecting where to receive your EMDR therapy training, it’s essential that the course meets all certification criteria set by EMDRIA. These requirements include: – Approval by the EMDR International Association; – 20 hours of didactic instruction; – Ten hours case consultation and a letter from an EMDRIA-approved consultant verifying completion; and – Possession of a certificate showing accreditation by the EMDR International Association.
Once you receive your certificate from the EMDR International Association, you are ready to begin providing EMDR therapy training to clients. There are various EMDR therapy training courses available and each is unique.
