    EMDR Consultation

    EMDR Consultation for Basic Training

    Lynn Smith is an EMDR Institute Facilitator and offers group and individual consultation required for the EMDR Institute’s Basic Training weekends 1&2. Consultation is provided via Zoom. Sessions emphasize case conceptualization, learning and the integration of the 8 phase standard protocol into your practice. Clinicians learn an enhanced and thorough understanding of the Institute’s basic training model through case presentations, question and answer sessions, and group discussion of key concepts and relevant research. Ongoing consultation is available after the requirement for basic training is met.

    Fees for consultation are $50 per group hour and $85 for individual. Weekly groups are typically offered on Wednesday evenings(6, 7, or 8 PM ET) and on Friday and Saturday mornings(9, 10, or 11am ET) for 1 hour. Additional times offered on an as needed basis for groups of 2 or more. You may choose from 1 to 2.5  hour group sessions.
