For those wishing to be trained in EMDR Therapy, I recommend the EMDR Institute Basic Training, which includes 20 hours of lecture, 20 hours of practicum and 10 hours of consultation. The EMDR Institute was founded by Dr. Francine Shapiro, the originator of EMDR Therapy.

EMDR Basic training includes an experiential component. Participants will be using EMDR with each other in order to gain familiarity with how clients experience EMDR as well as to develop the necessary skills to begin work with clients.
