Basic Training Group Consultation

“If we do not take sufficient care to learn our methods well, we fail in our responsibility as therapists. The first rule is ‘Do no harm,’ yet we harm when we do not prepare enough to do our best.” Dr. Francine Shapiro

The Foundations of EMDR

Designed for newly trained practitioners seeking ongoing support to translate new EMDR knowledge into successful applications and interventions in practice. Develop abilities to appropriately and seamlessly integrate the concepts of EMDR Therapy with new and existing clients. This group promotes exploration, creative problem solving, developing a critical eye and meticulous focus on the core competencies of practice through the lens of the AIP model. We will review the foundational principles and procedural steps of EMDR Therapy and identify solutions to common challenges, stuck points or when the model seems not to ‘fit’ what arises in treatment. Cheryl views the newly Basic Trained clinician’s path through a holistic lens and is highly committed to creating a curiosity-filled atmosphere where insight, growth and development, and mutual support are encouraged. As an active Trainer and Facilitator at EMDR Institute and EMDR HAP Basic trainings, Cheryl is informed of the most updated training curriuculum concepts and will emphasize the most current training content, manual changes and procedural concepts. 10 hours total are required for completion of Basic Training. Please note that meetings occur in Eastern Daylight Time.

I worked with Cheryl since taking my Basic training and found her to be open, curious, supportive, and extremely helpful in addressing clinical questions with regard to using EMDR, as well as with overall clinical concerns. – L. from CT.
