Frequently Asked Questions

This course is intended to be a very comprehensive starting point giving you everything you need to learn about using EMDR.

EMDR provides a clinical roadmap to compassionately explore and treat your clients' trauma without re-triggering pain that can de-rail treatment or even cause clients to withdraw from therapy. Importantly, EMDR is one of the most scientifically validated and evidenced-based trauma treatments ever developed.

Don't just take it from us, EMDR is one of the most effective trauma treatments by internationally respected trauma treatment facilities. In fact, EMDR has the highest recommendation across most clinical practice guidelines, including the Veterans Affairs/Department of Defense (VA/DoD) Clinical Practice Guideline for Management of PTSD, the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS), United Kingdom's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, and Australian National Health and Medical Research Council. The American Psychological Association (APA) gave EMDR a conditional rating.

You're most of the way there. These 43+ hours fulfill all didactic requirements to become a Certified EMDR Clinician (EMDR-C) through Evergreen Certifications. To take the next step toward certification, complete 6 practice hours to improve your confidence and competence in delivering EMDR therapy, AND 10 hours of consultation with an approved Evergreen EMDR consultant to ensure you get the feedback and support you need once you start using EMDR in actual sessions.
