Certification in EMDR Therapy

Consultations with ATCI clinicians may be used towards EMDR certification.  We require a video prior to recommendation for EMDR certification.  This video may be a therapy video or a role play, demonstrating the clinician’s application of the EMDR standard protocol: assessment phase, desensitization phase, and installation phases.  For a list of EMDRIA requirements, click HERE.
