  • Participants must complete the entire virtual training (including 10 hours of case consultation) within 12 months, from the initial start, to receive a Certificate of Completion.
  • Current research is limited to the applications of EMDR to trauma-related disorders.
  • Cancellation and transfer fees apply (see below)

  • A signed letter from the licensed, supervising clinician, including his/her license number, must be submitted to the EMDR office stating “I supervise the clinical work of (your name).” An email will be sent to the participant with a link to complete this step electronically.  (submit prior to W1 training only)


  • Participants must attend the entire 2-part training and participate in the practice exercises on all 3 days.
  • Clinicians will give and receive EMDR therapy under small group supervision.
  • The practice experience is for educational purposes only and not for personal therapy.

  • A target memory could be linked to unexpected, disturbing material or memories.
  • Since the processing of targeted incidents may continue after the training, other dreams, memories, etc., may surface. In such cases, it is the responsibility of the participant to seek and obtain appropriate assistance. Providing such assistance is not an extension of the training.
  • Clinicians who wish to continue with personal EMDR work can request referral information from the EMDR Institute office.
  • These experiential workshops (Weekend 1 and Weekend 2) are for clinical and research purposes only and will not qualify the participant to train others in EMDR.


  • A total of 10 hours of case consultation (5 after Weekend 1; 5 after Weekend 2) are required before a certificate of completion will be issued.
  • Consultation is about actual client cases and not experiences that occur in practicum.
