Course Description

This Part I Training is a 20-hour course of study, employing the Part I Training Manual authored by Francine Shapiro and published by the EMDR Institute.

The course of study is typically presented over a three full day period, beginning with a lecture on the first day, covering an overview of the training, an introduction to the EMDR approach, the Adaptive Information Processing Model, and preliminary practice skills. Break times are provided between lectures and for lunch on all 3 days.

All three days are devoted to lectures in the morning and practica in the afternoons. Each practicum session is conducted by a facilitator working with small groups of participants. The lectures and practica enable the participant to learn and practice the skills associated with the eight phases of EMDR treatment. These include Client History, Client Preparation, Assessment (structured accessing and measures of target memory), Desensitization (reprocessing the target memory network), Installation, Body Scan, Closure, and Reevaluation.

Upon completion of the Part I training, participants are prepared to begin EMDR practice with clients. It is recommended that 20 hours of clinical application be done before the participant takes Part II training, which completes Basic Training in EMDR.
