Trauma Recovery/HAP Training is available to clinicians who work twenty-four (24) or more hours per week for public or non-profit organizations in a clinical mental health capacity. You may work for more than one non-profit to reach the 24 hour per week requirement.

EMDR training is also available to full time students enrolled in a Master's or Doctorate level program in the mental health field (Social Work, Counseling, Marriage Family Therapy, Psychology, Psychiatry, Psychiatric Nursing ---- first year students not eligible). Students are not required to work 24 or more hours in a non profit or public sector agency, but will be asked to submit a Supervisor's approval form.

Participants who will be paying their own registration fee (except students) will be asked to submit a Verification of Employment with a Nonprofit, signed by the Agency Administrator or HR Manager, with your employer's name, organization name, address, city, state, phone number and email address. A Verification Form will be sent to your employer.

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, 3rd Edition". It is recommended that you read Francine Shapiro's book "Getting past your past".
The books are available at any major online bookstore. All other Trauma Recovery/HAP resources are available through the Trauma Recovery/HAP site: http://www.emdrhap.org/content/resource-center/

Prior to registering for EMDR Basic Training Part II, HAP requires completion of a HAP or Institute EMDR Basic Training Part I and a recommended (not mandatory) minimum of 4 - 6 hours of consultation. If EMDR Part I training was completed prior to 2007, Part I must be taken again before attending Part II to ensure the participant is trained on the current training model, which includes AIP as part of EMDR theory. It is also recommended that 4-6 hours of consultation is completed.

To obtain the EMDR Basic Training Certificate of Completion, a total of ten consultation hours must be completed with one of the EMDRIA Approved Consultants (or Consultants-in-training) registered on the HAP Consultation Directory. Training fees do not include case consultation.

For questions about EMDRIA Certification in EMDR, please contact EMDR International Association (EMDRIA)'s website at www.emdria.org directly.
