Part 1 includes basic information about the history and development of EMDR, current research as well as description of the Adaptive Information model and methods. The eight phases of EMDR treatment are explained in detail as well as how to use this model with children and recent trauma. There is an afternoon practicum session following each morning lecture where the participants will have the opportunity to use and experience the model in a safe educational setting working on their own issues. This affords them the opportunity to experience this powerful therapy as a clinician, and a client. Close facilitation provides as safe an experience as is possible. The trainees will be able and are encouraged to begin using EMDR in their practice at the end of Part 1.
Consultation sessions between Part 1 and Part 2 are scheduled with the participants to assist their progression towards completion. Ongoing consultation is also available and encouraged for those who wish to progress towards Certification in EMDR Therapy. Ms Moore also provides ongoing consultation toward becoming an EMDR consultant as well as for those who wish to expand their knowledge of EDMR.
