Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Basic Training

Kamloops, British Columbia

Wade R. Alexander Counselling is sponsoring a Basic Training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) course. This course will follow the curriculum mandated by the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing International Association (EMDRIA).

Qualified applicants will have a minimum of master’s-level training in a mental health discipline and will belong to a regulated professional organization with a code of ethics, or will be graduate students in practicum/internship with appropriate supervision.

Objectives of the Course:
Participants will understand the research and theory behind EMDR, effective and safe use of the eight-phase EMDR protocol, adaptation of the protocol to special situations and populations, and legal and ethical considerations in the use of EMDR.
The training will include instructional and supervised practice portions, a consultation component, and a short takehome open-book-format exam.
