You must attend all training days and actively participate in all supervised practice exercises and group consultation sessions in order to receive a certificate of completion for this training. To receive CE credits, you must attend this workshop in full and complete all the appropriate evaluation forms.


Two books are required reading:

Shapiro, F. (2017). Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Basic Principles, Protocols and Procedures (3nd ed.). New York: The Guilford Press.

Shapiro, F. (2013) Getting Past Your Past: Take Control of Your Life with Self-Help Techniques from EMDR Therapy. New York: Rodale Books.

Highly recommended optional reading: Hensley, B. (2015). An EMDR Therapy Primer: From Practicum to Practice (2nd ed.) New York: Springer Publishing Co.

Readiness for experiential practice:

This training includes extensive experiential practice during which you must be prepared to work on personal issues. While the practice portion focuses on real material, this is for training purposes and NOT personal psychotherapy. Participants who are not able or willing to participate in the experiential work on stressful life experiences should not apply. If you are not medically or emotionally stable, you should not take the training until things stabilize for you. It is also important to note that if disturbing material should come up during practice sessions, you should be prepared to seek individual therapy outside of the training environment. If you have any uncertainty or doubts concerning the training requirements, please contact Lynda prior to submitting your registration application.
