​​​Susan Schafer PhD, LP, EMDRIA Approved Consultant and Training Provider is offering this EMDRIA Approved EMDR Therapy Basic Training and consultation for the integration of this highly effective approach into clinical practice. 

This training program offers complete basic training in EMDR therapy (including the EMDRIA* required 10 hours of consultation) through lectures, practicum experience and exercises.   It has been designed to spread learning and skill development over four two-day modules (Friday and Saturday) within a three month period of time.  With this clinically focused training format, there are more opportunities for review, consultation and repeated practice of key  conceptual and clinical skills to solidify learning.

The training program is designed and structured to fully prepare you to integrate EMDR into your clinical practice and is committed to exceeding EMDRIA standards for basic training in EMDR.  Our commitment is to provide a respectful, supportive cohort learning environment to build a consortium of EMDR professionals.

This model also elaborates on topics including trauma brain, extended resourcing, attachment and dissociation which helps in safely working with more dysregulated clients.
