- Therapist have completed Remote EMDR Training — 40 hours of training (Part 1 and Part 2) plus 10 hours of Group Consultation — and received a “Certificate of Completion”
2) Before 2008:
- Completed “Level 1” AND “Level 2”, AND received a “Certificate of Completion” for both parts AND completed all requisite Consultation Hours from an standard EMDR basic training.
- If a therapist has completed “Level 1” training (only) prior to 2008, the therapist is NOT considered a fully trained in EMDR therapy.
