EMDR Basic Training

To Become An EMDR Clinician

EMDR Consulting's EMDRIA Approved Basic Training model “Integrating EMDR Therapy into Your Clinical Practice” is designed to give clinicians the skills and confidence to immediately apply EMDR therapy skills. Following a teaching and demonstration process, the two 3 day training segments emphasizes practice application for effective integration.

Basic training is typically delivered in Part 1 and Part 2 three-day segments 6-8 weeks apart to maximize learning. The cost of the required 10 hours of consultation is included in the training fees, with reduced rates for nonprofits, student interns, and EMDR clinicians wanting a refresher. Intensive 5 day training for Parts 1 and 2 sequentially is also available. There are reduced fees for nonprofit clinicians and student interns, as well as EMDR trained clinicians wanting a refresher. EMDR Basic Training can be brought onsite by request. For more information on the current schedule of Basic Trainings, see the events page of the blog or go directly to for registration, and fees.
