I don’t work for a non-profit agency, where can I get Basic EMDR Therapy Training?

If you do not work for a non-profit or public sector agency, please view the EMDRIA Calendar of Training Events

How can I know when a specific Trauma Recovery/HAP training is scheduled?

We schedule trainings when a non-profit agency submits an inquiry to us through our website www.emdrhap.org.

We do not contact the agencies for EMDR trainings, they contact us, so until an agency contacts us, we do not know when or where any upcoming trainings will be scheduled.

The best thing to do is check our training schedule regularly. If your agency is interested in hosting a training, please have them visit our website and complete a host application.

FYI: Some trainings are open to all, some are closed to just agency participants. If you find one and there are no seats available, contact the agency directly and see if you can be put on a wait list.

What type of reading is required to prepare for the EMDR trainings?

For Weekend I EMDR Training:
Prior to your training, it is required that you read the first eight chapters of Francine Shapiro’s book: “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Basic Principles, Protocols, and Procedures, 2nd Edition”. It is recommended that you read Francine Shapiro’s book “Getting Past Your Past”.

For Weekend II EMDR Training:
Prior to your EMDR training, it is required that you review chapters 2-8 and read chapters 9, 10 and 11 of Francine Shapiro’s book: “Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing: Basic Principles, Protocols, and Procedures, 2nd Edition”.

The books are available at any major online bookstore. All other Trauma Recovery/HAP resources are available through the Trauma Recovery/HAP Product Store.

What is the fee to do Basic EMDR Therapy training?

Basic EMDR Therapy training is offered at approximately half the price of many privately offered training options.  The price for each of the two required 3-day weekend training components is $445, for a total fee of $890.  The training fee does not include case consultation, but non-profit employees can often get free consultation from consultants within their own agency, or free or low cost consultation from independent consultants listed on the Trauma Recovery/HAP Consultant Directory.

There are no seats available for the training I want to take, how can I get on a wait list?

Some trainings are open to all, some are closed to just agency participants. If you find one and there are no seats available, contact the agency directly and see if they will put you on a wait list.

When is the Agency I attended for Part I going to host a Part II?

All participants who attended an agency’s Part I will receive an email when they have scheduled a Part II.

I didn’t get my Record of Completion

Records of Completion will be emailed to all participants of an EMDR Part II training after their attendance at the Part II training has been confirmed, payment has been received, and all 10 hours of consultation have been completed.

I didn’t get my CEUs

If a host agency applies for CEUs directly, participants will need to contact the agency representative for details about obtaining CEUs.

If a host agency requests CEUs be arranged through Trauma Recovery/HAP, each qualified participant will be assigned a unique CEU keycode, which will be emailed to participants after attendance and registration payment has been confirmed. This keycode will be used at www.ce-classes.com to enter the website and purchase the CEUs for the training/workshop the participant attended.

How do I find a consultant?

To complete Trauma Recovery/HAP’s Basic EMDR Therapy Training, each participant is required to complete 10 hours of consultation. Each participant/agency needs to arrange for the consultations on his/her own. All Consultants MUST BE registered on the Trauma Recovery/HAP Consultant Directory.

Trauma Recovery/HAP “recommends” that participants complete between 4 and 6 hours of consultations between the Weekend 1 and Weekend 2 training events.

How do I know how many consultation hours I have completed?

As you complete consultation hours, your consultant will enter them into the Trauma Recovery/HAP system. To see how many hours you have completed, and with whom, click here to see your completed consultation hours.
