EMDR Certification with Susan Arland, LMHC





The EMDRIA Certification process allows for a clinician to develop a more in-depth understanding of EMDR, case conceptualization, treatment planning and the Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) Model. Through an additional 10 hours of Group Consultation and 10 hours of Individual Consultation, the clinician masters the 8 phases of EMDR treatment and the standard protocol. In a supportive environment, cases are presented, leading to rich dialogue and learning of this often complex therapy. Adaptations for children, Interweaves and clinical choice points will be addressed. The clinician has the opportunity to integrate this approach with their already existing fund of knowledge and to develop a sense of smoothness in their work. For the treatment of specific problem areas, additional protocols and resources will be shared.
