You have completed your EMDR Training and 10 hours of required consultation. Now What?
In that time since being trained you may have noticed that things may have not gone quite as smoothly as it did in training, or the consulting hours were not enough to make you feel comfortable in feeling proficient. To truly understand and be proficient in the EMDR model, you must go beyond training. Being certified in EMDR indicates that you have completed a series of activities designed to help you become competent in EMDR.
Many therapists who get trained in EMDR don’t end up using it much. We teach a highly structured trauma-informed treatment approach, and our trainees tend to use EMDR frequently and effectively. Our approach supports your ability to perform an EMDR session properly, and guide a client to be ready, willing, and able to do EMDR.
The process of certification with Utah Lakes allows you to understand the 8 phases of EMDR with a Neuroscience lens. Meaning understanding the mind and body connection of our nervous system, as the client processes through trauma in those 8 phases. Beyond that we include the awareness of other modalities that can help understand what you are seeing in the room, such as IFS, and polyvagal theories. Now that you are interested, let’s talk logistics.
Cost $120 per consult.
