IN-PERSON INTENSIVE EMDR Therapy Training with the Institute for Creative Mindfulness 

5-DAY TRAINING

Chico Hot Springs (Pray, MT)

October 4-8, 2022

 


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 basic training approved by the EMDR International Association is a multi-tiered process of which this five-day training is the most substantial part. This training is offered In-Person in the intensive format where you can complete Parts I & II over a five-day period at Chico Hot Springs in Pray, MT.  

The Institute for Creative Mindfulness 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.

Join Institute for Creative Mindfulness founder Dr. Jamie Marich, Ph.D., LPCC-S, LICDC-CS, REAT, RYT-500 and ICM Senior Faculty member Irene Rodriguez, M.S., LMHC, REAT for the intensive training experience held in one of their favorite places in the world: Chico Hot Springs using a co-teaching model! The first part of the training will be conducted by Dr. Jamie and then Irene will take over. Both trainers will be present at the end to ensure as much integration of content and technique as possible.

This five-day training (41 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.

Lunch is included in the price for the five days of the training. The cost of required consultation is not included with the price; please scroll down to informed consent section for further information.

  • Preparedness for Doing Your Own Work: Throughout the training, you will be expected to participate in a working practicum experience in the role of therapist, client, and observer. This means that you will be expected to do a small piece of your own, authentic clinical work. If you are currently in counseling or being treated for a mental health condition, it is recommended that you speak with your provider, alerting them that you are participating in the training. If you have received a major mental health diagnosis (past or present), you acknowledge that you are taking this training and engaging in this practicum at your own risk, and agree to alert faculty or training staff before or during the training if any complications arise. You acknowledge that everyone taking part in the practicum experience is new to EMDR therapy and agree to keep the space as safe as possible for all involved.
