2020 - 2021 EMDR Therapy Training

Sep 18, 2020 08:30am -

Online and Louisville, KY

Event Description

This training was developed to bridge the long-standing gap between EMDR therapy training in its standard form and the sensitive and responsive treatment of persons with dissociation and dissociative disorders. It is offered by members of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation (ISSTD), approved by the Board of ISSTD, and accredited by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA). Consisting of four modules and a total of 80 didactic, practicum, and consultation hours, this training will teach the responsible application of EMDR therapy by helping trainees to become attuned to the presence and forms of simple trauma, complex trauma, and dissociation. Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, participants will learn how to discern when (and how), at this stage in their learning, they can use EMDR therapy methods for trauma resolution to resolve a person’s presenting issues.
