Basic Training Weekend One Resource Page

The Event Information Guide (PDF) outlines tech requirements, meeting expectations, training schedule, and EMDR Institute contact information.  We recommend that you download and print the PDF so you can reference it closer to the event.

The Learning Resources (PDF) includes links to articles that are required reading prior to the training, as well as links to a collection of research articles, presentations, and other materials that reflect the scope and influence of Dr. Francine Shapiro, the developer of EMDR therapy and the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP).  You can access The Dr. Francine Shapiro Library via the links provided on the downloadable PDF.

As part of the Required Reading for the Basic Training, both books can be ordered on our website or from other booksellers:

1-EMDR: Basic Principles, Protocols and Procedures (Shapiro 2018). This is the textbook for the course.

If you can read pages 1-124 prior to the start of the lecture, it will be to your advantage. 

2-Getting Past Your Past: Take Control of Your Life with Self-Help Techniques from EMDR Therapy (Shapiro 2012). This book is useful to give to clients to help them understand EMDR therapy.

Due to possible shipping delays, we encourage you to order well in advance of your training.
