Basic Training Group Consultation

The more powerful the perpetrator, the greater is his prerogative to name and define reality, and the more completely his arguments prevail.” – Judith Lewis Herman

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, development of a critical eye and 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 curriculum concepts and will emphasize the most current training content, changes to the curriculum and core principles and procedural concepts.

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. - Lisa Crowley., CT.
