Best Basic EMDR Training

Take the First Step

Our Basic EMDR Training is your first step in a practice-changing approach to transformational healing. You can begin to master the theory and practice of EMDR therapy as a comprehensive psychotherapy approach through this three-part, 46-hour Basic EMDR Training. It is approved by EMDRIA, the gold standard for EMDR training and certification worldwide. In fact, our training exceeds EMDRIA’s requirements with more hours dedicated to supervised practice sessions and case consultation so you can feel confident about using EMDR with your clients right away.

We combine formal instruction with small group practice to give you a first-hand experience of EMDR memory reprocessing—from both the therapist and client point of view.

What to Expect in Basic Training

Deany Laliotis, Trainer, is passionate about EMDR and her interactive teaching style makes the EMDR model and methods come alive.  

You'll experience EMDR in action through dramatic videos of actual client sessions that demonstrate step by step what you're learning.

Gain first-hand experience of EMDR memory reprocessing in your small group practice sessions where an experienced EMDR therapist guides you through the process—both as therapist and "client."

You're encouraged to talk about your own clinical cases throughout the course of training so you can apply what you're learning with your own clients. That translates to over 10 hours of case consultation at no additional cost.

You’ll also receive a comprehensive, up-to-date EMDR Therapy Basic Training Manual including a thorough Resources section plus Forms and Worksheets to guide your EMDR practice. This must-have EMDR Training Manual is an invaluable reference that not only is yours to keep forever, it will continue to be updated!

Who Is Eligible?

You are—if you are a mental health clinician, licensed for independent practice.

If you're not yet licensed, you must be on a licensing track under the guidance of a clinical supervisor. If you are a graduate student, you must have completed your core coursework and currently work in a practice setting. 

It's important that you see clients while you're in training so you can apply what you learn and ask for feedback during consultation.

If you work at non-profit or government agencies and carry a full caseload, ask about our not-for-profit discounts.

Here's what Anna says about her Basic Training experience:

Both personally and professionally, I have benefited so much from Deany’s EMDR Therapy Basic Training. This program was a perfect combination of didactics, videos of real therapy sessions, small group discussions, and, most importantly, the opportunity to practice EMDR therapy with other trainees! I grew immensely from my experiences as the therapist, client, and observer. Plus, I received support for specific questions that came up in my clinical work. I appreciate Deany’s passion, expertise, and comprehensive teaching approach!
