EMDR Basic Training in Portland Oregon — Parts I & II

The EMDR Basic Training Parts I & II are designed for clinicians interested in learning to use EMDR with their clients. No previous experience with EMDR is necessary. In addition to Part I and Part II, 10 hours of group consultation completes the 50 hour training requirement of the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA). This training is fully approved by the EMDR International Association. The course includes supervised practicum, allowing participants a hands-on experience with EMDR. EMDR clinicians who have previously completed an EMDRIA-approved EMDR training can take Part I or Part II for half price, space permitting.

Material covered in Part I includes: Trauma-oriented client history-taking, Float Back technique, 8 phases of EMDR processing, techniques to address blocked processing, specific EMDR protocols for resolving various conditions, the Adaptive Information Processing System, ways to close down an incomplete EMDR session, and supervised EMDR practice sessions.

Material covered in Part II includes: EMDR case conceptualization, review of the 8 phase EMDR procedure, advanced Cognitive Interweave, advanced Float Back, Advanced Resourcing, and supervised EMDR practice sessions.
