EMDR Therapy Basic Training
If you are a therapist, you have undoubtedly heard of the power of EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprocessing). EMDR therapy is comprehensive and includes aspects of multiple psychotherapeutic approaches. A research and evidence based therapy created by Francine Shapiro Ph.D., EMDR therapy is identified as treatment of choice for trauma.
Here is where this EMDR Basic Training is unique.
Ask any of your peers who are already trained in EMDR therapy. EMDR and dissociation is covered in other basic trainings, but not in great detail. If clinicians don't get that information, they can find EMDR therapy significantly more challenging when working with complex trauma clients. As you know, the majority of our clients actually come to us to heal from the effects of complex developmental trauma, as opposed to simple PTSD.
So, as a trauma and dissociation specialist, it was very important to me to not only support clinicians in meeting the standards established by EMDRIA for EMDR Basic Training in Arizona, but also provide specific additional curriculum on working with complex trauma.
