Both trainings will be located at 2253 Downing St., Denver, CO 80205.

EMDR Basic Training includes Part I and Part II, each of which are three-day training sessions, as well as 10 hours of consultation on EMDR Therapy, and reading an EMDR Therapy book by Francine Shapiro. This training is EMDRIA-Approved.

Part I of the EMDR Training covers the development of EMDR Therapy, the Adaptive Information Processing Model, the 8-Phase EMDR therapy approach, and Resource Development and Installation (RDI). Specific learning objectives include:

1. Describe the eight phases of EMDR Therapy
2. Identify three elements of the Adaptive Information Processing Model
3. Utilize the criteria for client screening for EMDR treatment
4. Develop a treatment plan to prioritize targets for EMDR processing
5. Describe the protocol for closing down incomplete sessions


After Part I of the EMDR Training, clinicians will begin using EMDR Therapy with clients and participate in consultation with Elizabeth Legg, PhD, LPC, NCC. Participants are responsible for arranging and scheduling consultation. Group consultation options will be provided following the Part I Training. Four hours (of the total 10 hours required) must be completed between Parts I and II.

Part II of the EMDR Training follows about 4-6 months later and addresses EMDR Therapy with Complex PTSD, Anxiety Disorders, Addictions, Chronic Pain/Illness, Couples, and Children/Adolescents. Specific learning objectives include:

1. Clarify my use of the eight phase EMDR Therapy approach
2. Implement three strategies to assist with blocked processing
3. Describe two strategies to use with complex PTSD clients
4. Provide two strategies to use with dissociative clients
5. Apply EMDR therapy to present day symptoms

After Part II of the EMDR Training, clinicians complete the remaining hours of the 10 required hours of consultation with Elizabeth Legg, PhD, LPC, NCC. The entire process of training from beginning Part I to finishing the 10 required hours of consultation must be completed within a 2-year period to qualify for the Certificate of Completion.

The EMDR Training includes lecture, discussion, experiential exercises, live demonstrations, and small group practice (as both therapist and client). The training has a maximum of 10 participants. Each dyad/triad has a private office space for practicing the trauma protocol. A printed manual is provided at each session.

The entire EMDR Training includes 20 hours of instruction, 20 hours of practicum, and 10 hours of consultation, at which point a certificate of completion (40 continuing education contact hours) is given to participants. EMDR Training prepares clinicians to use EMDR Therapy with clients. However, this training does not result in EMDR Certification. This is a first step toward EMDR Certification (see www.emdria.org for information about EMDR Certification).
