Being certified in EMDR indicates that you have completed a series of activities designed to help you become competent in EMDR.
What are the benefits of EMDR Certification?
What does it take?
Summary of requirements to become Certified in EMDR, as per the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA):
Who is eligible to participate in this program?
Anyone who has already completed an EMDRIA-approved EMDR Therapy training program. “Completion” means that you have completed the entire training, including all parts as well as the required consultation hours, and have a certificate of completion from your training provider. You will be asked to provide this documentation so we can confirm your eligibility.
Why do this as a package?
The benefits of pursuing your EMDR Certification via this package include:
Why do this with TICTI?
Many therapists who get trained in EMDR don’t end up using it much. We teach a highly structured trauma-informed treatment approach, and our trainees tend to use EMDR frequently and effectively. Our approach supports your ability to perform an EMDR session properly, and guide a client to be ready, willing, and able to do EMDR.
What is the certification procedure?
Will I definitely be certified after I do all this?
That depends on you. We can provide the services, but it’s up to you to use EMDR with your clients, show session videos in consultation, and (if applicable) be responsive to the consultant’s feedback. You will receive feedback on each video you show, so you will always have a good idea of how close you are to earning the consultant’s endorsement. Our consultants do not require perfection, but will want to see a reasonable level of competence.
We anticipate that most participants will be able to obtain certification after completing this package of activities. However, if a given participant progresses more slowly, they may choose to purchase additional consultation until they are able to earn the consultant’s endorsement.
The Certification Package includes:
Note: You will be responsible for your own application fee to EMDRIA for EMDR Certification.
