EMDR Training Format
The format of UK trainings in EMDR follows the format used by all national associations affiliated to EMDR Europe.
EMDR Basic training is generally in four parts, and the details can be obtained from any of the accredited EMDR Training Providers in the UK (accredited by EMDR Europe). This Training Organisation (EMDR Training & Consultancy) now only carries out EMDR Training post Basic Training in the form of Refresher and Supervision Days.
Supervision from one of the accredited EMDR consultants is also highly desirable following Level 1 training even if supervision is accessed infrequently. Supervision is available telephonically or by skype if geographical access is difficult. A minimum period of supervision is a requirement for clinicians wishing to go on to become accredited EMDR Practitioners following Basic EMDR training.
Accredited EMDR practitioners and consultants are recognised as having a high level of EMDR skills and these clinicians will be the first to be recommended by the EMDR Association UK and Ireland to members of the public wishing to access EMDR therapists.
Basic and Advanced EMDR trainings are in the form of lectures, video material, and experiential exercises. Feedback from these trainings has been extremely positive.
