ONLINE INTENSIVE EMDR Therapy Training with the Institute for Creative Mindfulness 

6-DAY TRAINING

November 7-12, 2021 


Discovered by Dr. Francine Shapiro, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is one of the most researched and utilized methods in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other forms of human distress connected to trauma. Completing our full EMDR therapy training approved by the EMDR International Association is a multi-tiered process of which this six-day training is the most substantial part. This training is offered ONLINE in the intensive format where you can complete Parts I & II at the same time!

Join Jamie Marich, Ph.D., LPCC-S, LICDC-CS, REAT, RYT-500 for this intensive training experience run in the style of an online retreat. The Institute for Creative Mindfulness, founded by Dr. Marich, is known for focusing only on the standard EMDR therapy protocol in our initial trainings, with proper attention paid to dynamics like dissociation and complex trauma, for optimal implementation in clinical settings. The mindfulness-informed and trauma-focused thread that runs through all of our instructional offerings makes implementation of standard EMDR therapy with more complex cases possible from the beginning of your EMDR training experience. The training components, when combined with an additional ten hours of required consultation, meet all requirements for completing an EMDRIA-approved training in EMDR therapy. 

This six-day Training (42 total hours of Lecture and Practicum): Covers the basics of trauma, the adaptive information processing model, trauma-informed stabilization, and the basic methodology and mechanisms of action used in EMDR Therapy. You will be able to practice EMDR Therapy after completion of this intensive.
