Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Page updated 31 May 2020. Click your browser’s Refresh button to ensure you get the latest information.
COVID-19 Update, 25 March. ALL EMDR trainings for 2020 until November (at this stage) will be on-line only, and adopt the latest 1+2 format for the Introductory training. This training was accredited by EMDR Assn of Australia in 2018 and was the first EMDR training in the world accredited for on-line delivery.
COVID-19 Update, 9 April. For those who have already registered for an EMDR Introductory training, and prefer the face-to-face format rather than online, we have tentatively made new bookings, and will transfer your existing registration as follows:
Sydney 27, 28 November.
Melbourne 29, 30 November.
Brisbane 3, 4 December.
Perth 6, 7 December.
These workshops are not currently listed on the website, and are available at this stage only to those who have an EXISTING Introductory Training registration and prefer a face-to-face format. If this applies to you, please advise us asap. The number of places are limited as social distancing may still be required in groups.
Note that these dates are for Day Two and Three of the EMDR Introductory training. Day One will be held approximately four weeks earlier. As part of the shift to the new 1+2 format, Day One will be a live interactive webinar, held 9 am – 5 pm, your local time. The shift to the 1+2 format with Day One being a live interactive webinar was made prior to Covid-19, and this applies to ALL Introductory EMDR training, regardless of whether Days Two & Three are online or face-to-face.
The EMDR Assn of Australia Accredited Basic Training consists of three components: an Introductory Workshop (sometimes called Level 1 or Weekend 1), an Advanced Workshop (sometimes called Level 2 or Weekend 2) and 10 hours of Case Consultation (supervision).
You can register for any of these components on their own, or register for the EMDR Comprehensive training which covers all three. Either individually or as part of the Comprehensive training, the workshops are the same. Both the Introductory and Advanced workshops as stand-alone workshops include six weeks access to Case Consultation.
The EMDR Comprehensive package includes unlimited Case Consultation from when you start training until 12 months after you have completed the Advanced Workshop. The Comprehensive package also gives you heavily discounted fees for Master Class webinars. You have 1 year after the Introductory Workshop to register (at no additional fee) for the Advanced Workshop.
Both workshops emphasise experiential skills development. You must complete the didactic knowledge component of each training prior to attending the workshop. This consists of a program of reading, recordings and videos which will be sent to you upon registration. For the Introductory Workshop allow 15 hours, allow 7 hours for the Advanced Workshop. Regular Q&A sessions are held via Internet meetings to assist you in covering this material.

Note In 2020 workshops will be conducted by Graham Taylor or Claire Kullack. Claire is co-director of a specialist psychological trauma clinic that has a large multidisciplinary team of therapists, the majority of whom are trained in EMDR. She has been trained and supervised by Graham, and has co-trained with him throughout 2019. She is an EMDRAA Accredited Trainer, and has the same high level of skill, knowledge and passion that Graham is known for.

Comprehensive EMDR Training
Sign up for any Introductory Workshop and take the Comprehensive Training fee option. You can take any Advanced EMDR Workshop for a 1 year period after you have completed your Introductory Workshop and have had some clinical experience of using EMDR (Minimum 5 clients / 12 sessions) and some Case Consultation sessions (CC). You then select the Advanced Workshop you want and register below, using 100% discount code that we supply, so you pay nothing more. Most people are ready to take the Advanced Workshop within 3 months of doing the Introductory Workshop.
Introductory Workshop (1 + 2 days) Runs 9.00 – 5.00
2020 ALL TRAINING ONLINE
NOTE: For 2020 all Introductory trainings will adopt the new 1+2 training format. Instead of the former 3 days in a row format, the new format will be 1 day live interactive webinar in which we cover theory and mechanisms of action, assessment, resourcing, stabilisation, case conceptualisation and treatment planning. There are 5 hours of experiential practice on this day. You can then practice using any or all of these skills with your new and existing clients. Four to six weeks later you attend a 2 day live interactive webinar to learn and practice specific EMDR skills and protocols.
NOTE: As all trainings are online you can register for any workshop. They run 9.00 – 5.00 local time in the states indicated. Note: NSW / VIC / TAS go to Daylight Saving on 4 October. WA and QLD do not have Daylight Saving.

Advanced Workshop (2 days) Runs 9.00 – 5.00
To attend this training you must have attended an EMDR Australia Accredited Level 1 training, had clinical experience with a minimum of 6 clients, and had some Case Consultation with an EMDR Australia Accredited Consultant.
The Advanced Workshop goes well beyond the curriculum requirements of EMDRAA. You will practice advanced resourcing strategies and variations on the standard protocol for clients who are emotionally dysregulated, dissociative, have a personality disorder or an attachment disorder. If you did your Introductory (Weekend One) training with another accredited EMDR trainer, we provide a bridging program to cover material covered in our Introductory Workshop but not covered in other trainings. Access to preworkshop Q&A sessions and post-workshop consultation sessions is included in the fee.
