    EMDRIA Certification in EMDR therapy

    Mental health clinicians are eligible to become EMDR Certified Therapists through EMDRIA if they have an advanced degree from an accredited college or university, are fully licensed in their mental health professional field for independent practice, and have two years of experience (minimum) in that field. Specific EMDR requirements include completion of an EMDRIA approved training program in EMDR therapy, a minimum of 50 clinical sessions in which EMDR was utilized, and 20 hours of consultation in EMDR by an Approved Consultant. Hours can be accumulated through both group(10) and individual (10) hours. To maintain the credential, EMDR Certified Therapists must complete twelve hours of continuing education in EMDR every two years.

    Certification in EMDR is an advanced, expert level credential. As a result, the consultation process allows for clinicians to demonstrate an advanced understanding of the AIP model and all 8 phases/3 prongs of EMDR therapy. Consultees will be expected to present cases in a structured format with justification for clinical choices made throughout the process. 

    Individual hours are scheduled at the discretion of the clinician and consultant. Cost for individual consultation for certification is $125 per hour. Clinicians will be asked to present cases via session recordings and/or verbatim transcripts in order to demonstrate fidelity in all phases of EMDR therapy.
