Welcome to Dr Francine Shapiro's own training institute, The EMDR Institute,
and the only training program authorised by her available in Australia.
It is truly an international training as it is the only training that is offered in many countries throughout the world, that has been accredited by each country's EMDR association and the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA).
Please visit the EMDR Institute web site (emdr.com) and open up the "faculty List" page where you will find information on 41 faculty members who train in over 23 countries in the world. Each trainer has been selected and trained by Dr Shapiro to maintain high training standards.
An EMDR Institute Basic training is conducted over six days to ensure that the participants may optimise their exposure to the practice of EMDR with six separate practicum sessions.The six days are broken into two, 3-day trainings named Weekend 1 and Weekend 2. Each three day training is followed by a five hour supervision /case consultation component. It is a requirement to have practiced EMDR therapy with selected clients and attended 5 hours of supervision/case consultation after the Weekend 1 training and before attending the Weekend 2 training. It is for this reason that you are not able to attend both the Weekend 1 & 2 trainings at the same set of trainings. The supervision/case consultation that follows the trainings is provided by case consultants who have been given additional training and have committed to ongoing training.

*Weekend 1 & 2 Training Schedule.
Presented by EMDR Trainers

NOTE: the term Weekend has been used to distinguish the new
three day training from the previous two and a half day trainings. The
term Weekend does not necessarily infer that the trainings will be held
on a weekend.
Basic Training Overview
Goal of the EMDR Therapy Basic Training
This experiential training will familiarize participants with a
broad spectrum of EMDR therapy applications sufficient for comfortable
and efficient use with a wide range patients and situations. Special
attention will be given to the therapeutic needs of clients.
EMDR therapy is a specialized approach that requires supervised
training for full therapeutic effectiveness and client safety. The
training will consist of lecture, live and videotaped demonstrations
and supervised practice. The format of this workshop has been designed
by the originator of EMDR therapy, Francine Shapiro, PhD. The workshop
leaders have been individually selected and trained by her to provide
the comprehensive information necessary for appropriate client selection
and effective utilization of EMDR therapy. This is the workshop program
which has been taught by Dr. Shapiro since 1990. EMDR Institute adheres
to the ethical standards of APA, social work, nursing and mental health
Integrating EMDR with Other Approaches
As an integrative psychotherapy approach, EMDR is compatible with
all contemporary paradigms including, psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural,
experiential and systemic.
