EMDR Therapy Training

Mutual Arising Mental Health Counseling, PLLC is proud to be presenting Dr. Jamie Marich and her Institute for Creative Mindfulness (ICM) curriculum for EMDRIA Approved EMDR Therapy. Click HERE to be linked to ICM.

Discovered by Dr. Francine Shapiro, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is one of the most researched and utilized methods in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other forms of human distress connected to trauma. Completing our full training approved by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) is a multi-tiered process of which this three-day training is your first part. This presentation offers special consideration for Addiction and Dissociation populations.

Part I Training (3 Days = 21 total hours of Lecture and Practicum): Covers the basics of trauma, the adaptive information processing model, trauma-informed stabilization, and the methodology and mechanisms of action used in EMDR Therapy. You will be able to practice EMDR Therapy with certain cases after completion of Part I.

Part II Training: (3 Days = 21 total hours of Lecture and Practicum): Enhanced practicum content, covering best practices for using EMDR Therapy with special populations and in the complex scenarios of clinical practice; advanced content on ethics, neurobiology, and case conceptualization.

10 Hours of Consultation with an EMDRIA-approved consultant on our ICM team. Click HERE to view. Completion of consultation is required before a Certificate of Training in EMDR Therapy can be awarded.

Successful completion of this program constitutes the completion of a Training Program in EMDR and allows you to practice EMDR Therapy within your clinical scope of practice. Earning the EMDRIA Certified EMDR Therapist distinction requires additional training and consultation that you can complete with us or another party if you wish to go on for this distinction.
