Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

EMDR Basic & Advanced Training in

Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, & Northern Canada

Presented by:
Sue Genest and Life Journeys Counselling


Mission: To train mental health professionals in this highly effective empirically validated therapy.


All trainers are EMDRIA approved and facilitators are EMDRIA Approved Consultants.  Our team provides you with years of experience and knowledge to guide participants in the application of their training to the specific populations they address in their practice.


Learning Objectives:

  1. to understand the research and theoretical positions on EMDR.
  2. to use the basic eight phase EMDR protocol, effectively and safely, and adapt it to special situations and populations.
  3. to be familiar with variations on the basic protocol for special populations (e.g. children, couples, grief, pain, addictions, phobias, dissociation,…)
  4. to understand legal and ethical considerations in the use of EMDR.

EMDR Basic course includes textbook, manuals, and the 10 hours of required consultation needed to complete the training.  Continued consultation is available at a very reasonable cost.


EMDR Advanced Training Topics:

-          Working with complex trauma and dissociation

-          Pre-Verbal Protocols for working with very early trauma and neglect

-          EMDR and Ego State Therapy

-          Advanced stabilization techniques

-          Incorporating mindfulness into trauma preparation

-          Working with addictions

EMDR was given the highest level of recommendation (category for robust empirical support and demonstrated effectiveness) in the treatment of trauma by APA.
