Stacy Stoddard – EMDR Basic Training Part 1
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a research-based integrative psychotherapy that helps with healing trauma (past or recent), PTSD symptoms, persistent negative beliefs about oneself (such as “I’m stupid” or “I’m worthless”) and much more. Using auditory tones or visual cues, the client follows a rhythmic left-right pattern while noticing thoughts and feelings associated with memories and beliefs. The EMDR therapist uses a standardized protocol and proficient therapeutic skills to guide the client through the process. Clients overwhelmingly find EMDR therapy to be quicker and more thorough than talk therapy.
EMDR Basic Trainings consist of two 3-day weekends (with approximately 3-6 months in between) At the completion of the training, you will be fully trained to use EMDR in your practice.
