Training Institute for Mental Health

For those interested in EMDR, NIP is offering a great program.

This 7-day EMDR Institute Training, with EMDR trainer and NIP faculty member, Karen Alter-Reid, Ph.D. is spread out over a two month period.  The training consists of lecture, live and videotaped demonstrations, case studies, supervised experiential practice and ongoing case consultation. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their cases throughout the course and evaluate how EMDR therapy can be integrated into their clinical work.  The 10-hour consultation requirement for completion of EMDR Basic Training is embedded into this course. Participants will also practice EMDR therapy in small groups with direct observation and feedback from the trainer and facilitator staff. Trainees will become familiarized with a broad spectrum of EMDR therapy applications sufficient for comfortable and efficient use with a wide range patients and situations. Emphasis is placed on integrating EMDR therapy, neuroscience, and trauma concepts into the framework of a relational psychoanalytic treatment.

This course is designed for licensed mental health practitioners who treat adults and children in a private practice or other clinical setting.  Participants must have an active psychotherapy caseload so that they can begin to integrate and utilize EMDR therapy in their practices during the six-week training period.
