Since 1986 Chris Lee and Graham Taylor have offered a Standard Format EMDR training consisting of 2 two day workshops, each with around 7 additional hours of pre-workshop preparation. Chris will continue to run this format in 2016 and 2017, and dates for these are set out on the EMDR Part 1 and EMDR Part 2 pages of this website. In parallel we now offer a new format: EMDR Comprehensive. Graham Taylor will conduct will conduct all these trainings in 2017
This new format training has been 2 ½ years in the making, with over 500 hours development time. It began with an entirely online EMDR training for Clinical Psychologists in the WA Department of Health in 2012, and has built on that experience. The EMDR Australia curriculum specifies that a complete EMDR training consists of over 20 hours of Knowledge based learning, 35 hours of Skills based learning, and 10 hours of Case Consultation. The EMDR Comprehensive training delivers the complete package, significantly exceeding those requirements.
The Knowledge component is delivered to you by Internet, via a series of modules containing lectures, MP3s, videos, readings and a detailed workbook. This is completed as a self-paced package, supported by weekly Q&A webinars. To cover the mandatory elements of the Knowledge program would take approximately 10 hours, with the optional supplementary material you could easily double this.
When you have completed the Knowledge modules you then attend the Introductory Workshop. This runs for 3 days. The entire 21 hours of workshop time is devoted to skills development, there are no lectures. Following this you will have learnt the skills to do EMDR Therapy with all but complex and emotionally dysregulated clients.
The second Advanced Workshopis held over 2 days, held 2 – 3 months after the Introductory Workshop, although by arrangement you may attend a later workshop. During this interval you must attend 5 hours of small group Case Consultation and conduct EMDR with a minimum of 4 clients or 12 sessions. There are also around 5 hours of Knowledge modules to complete before the Advanced Workshop. in this time. Over the 2 Skills workshops you will have 35 hours of skills building exercises, including a personal experience of EMDR.
Following the second Skills workshop you must complete a further 5 hours of Case Consultation to complete your training. When you register for the EMDR Comprehensive training you have one year to complete it.
