Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Page updated 24 February 2021.      Click your browser’s Refresh button to ensure you get the latest information.

Note: All workshops are currently filling very quickly, as we keep the numbers small (Max. 20).  

All EMDR trainings for 2021 will be on-line, 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.

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).

The following trainings are for the full Comprehensive package which include all three components. Registration for the Intro training alone has been discontinued because to work with anything but straightforward simple PTSD you need the full training, and most trauma work these days is of the “complex” variety. These dates are for the Introductory component.   When you have completed the experience requirements (10 sessions and some Case Consultation) you can then select your dates for the Advanced training.  Workshops are filling quickly, there are a maximum of 20 places in each.  

The EMDR Comprehensive package includes unlimited Case Consultation from when you start training until 6 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.

In 2021 workshops will be conducted by Graham Taylor or Claire Kullack.  Claire is co-director of the Pax Centre, a specialist 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.

Fee

Advanced Workshop alone (2 days) $695  (Available to those who did an Introductory training prior to 2021, or with another trainer. 

Comprehensive package  $1550 (payable in one sum or by 2 or 3 monthly instalments)

Comprehensive EMDR Training

You first sign up for any Introductory Workshop.  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 / 10 sessions) and some Case Consultation sessions (CC).   When you are ready to take the Advanced training you select the dates 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.

See the Case Consultation page for details of Pre-workshop Q&A and Post-workshop CC sessions.

Introductory Training (1 + 2 days) Runs 9.00 – 5.00

All Introductory trainings have a 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.   

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 back to Australian Eastern STANDRD Time on 4 April 2021. The times for WA, and OLD do not change as these states do not have Daylight Saving.

Advanced Training (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 Training 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 pre-training Q&A sessions and post-workshop consultation sessions is included in the fee.

Case Consultation

After both the Introductory and Advanced Trainings you have the opportunity to bring clinical questions to small group Case Consultation sessions, held via Internet meetings.

If you registered for just the Introductory or Advanced trainings as stand-alone trainings you have access for 2 months after each workshop.
