EMDR Therapy Basic Training Certificate

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a comprehensive psychotherapy that accelerates the treatment of many different pathologies and trauma related to disturbing events and present life conditions. This two-part experiential training is approved by The EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) and includes 20 hours of lecture, 20 hours of supervised practice and 10 hours of consultations. Complemented by an empirically tested method, EMDR therapy is compatible with all contemporary clinical paradigms including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, experimental and systemic approaches. In this program, you work with our EMDRIA-approved instructor, Wendy Freitag, to earn your EMDR Therapy Basic Training Certificate.

At the time of enrollment, participants must fill out the Participant’s Agreement, and unlicensed participants must fill out the Clinical Supervisor Agreement.
